Scottish Walk and Tree Trimming

Man, it turned cold around here in a hurry. It was 75 yesterday and this morning we woke up to 30 degrees. We went down to the annual Scottish Walk in old town Alexandria this morning to see the parade of plaid. It was chilly on the sidewalk but the boys loved all the bag pipes, dogs, politicians and men in skirts. The parade was entertaining per usual and I got a bunch of pictures of it here. http://www.flickr.com/photos/homerclees/sets/72157594402565053/

We headed off to buy a small Christmas tree after that and brought home a lovely miniture tree complete with it's own base. We are still sticking with a mini tree at this point because we really don't have room for a big one in the family room and the living room is still basically a play room for the boys. We're going to have to get a bigger tree soon, we seem to have too many ornaments for the 4 footer we have now. We also got the stockings up but realized that Nicole doesn't have one. Not surprising really, considering her heritage but it is sad that me and the boys will be getting cool stuff put in our stocking by Santa and Nicole's going to miss out.

Since Nicole buys all the stuff for the stocking iis unlikely that Papa will be getting cool stuff. I think he should share the stocking with Nicole to include her!

I think Mama deserves her own stocking...it's not like Papa has to make it himself (perish the thought :).

Saw the picture of the royals (that would be us, www.stgeorge-va.com) in your album and was wondering if it OK for us to use it on our site. We'll be glad to give you credit. Please contact rapier100@hotmail.com. Thanks!
