Ms. Grinch Becomes a Ho, Ho, Ho!

I loved seeing everyone's LIGHT pictures! Those, along with some unexpected extra cash in my coffers and the erection of our fambly Christmas tree, have helped to put me a bit more into the holiday spirit.

Here is a poor ol' picture that doesn't do this lovely tree justice. Still, you can get the idea. Biggest tree we have ever had. You can kind of see that the angel at the top is a bit smooshed against the ceiling. This magnificent tree is a perk of having Social Animal working at Home Depot. Employee discounts rule!


NOTE: Please look at the link I've added in my top right column. One of our cool fellow bloggers, Not Fainthearted, had the idea to see what sort of donations she could help drum up for a wonderful charity organization called Heifer International. Even a small donation can be put towards providing real help to a real family or village! I know giving helped Ms. Grinch here feel that holiday glow :-)

Don't forget...next week's Saturday Scavenger Shots word, chosen by AlienCG is CARD and the Alien tagged
Tara to choose the next word! Good times, good times....

Nice tree. I better put one up if there's an erection involved.

Evil-E: heh heh heh! It's a beaut.

Tara: Yay, get your tree! And thanks for considering Heifer.

NFH: Ah, yeah, we all love a good erection around the holidays.
Heifer International has impressed me and I am happy to draw attention to it! Thanks so much for experimenting :-)

AlienCG: I am amazed at the size of this thing. It would be a crime not to share it with the world.

MiniJonB: And maybe just a little ho-tastic!

Churlita: This is an erection you won't want to miss. Sure, it takes some work, but it is all worth it in the end...

I knwo other people said it....but, lol...you said erect!!

Mrs. Big Hairy Woman said...

Your tree is bigger than mine..(posted pic on my blog) I like the fact that the top is smushed at the ceiling..

Middle Ditch said...

Ok ... one more joke ... I erected my tree just now.

Now for the hard part ... decorate it.

laura b. said...

MrManuel: It is probably one of those things that just can't be said too many times :-)

MrsBHW: Well, some feel that size doesn't matter...it is what you do with it, right? *giggle giggle*

Middle Ditch: Thanks for coming! (You know it had to be said...) I am glad you were able to successfully erect your tree and I trust you were triumphant over the hard part as well.
