So, another Christmas is upon us. I can’t believe this past year flew by like it did, but it did!

The weather is trying to get cold enough to snow so I have my fingers crossed and my prayers flying heavenward for snow again this year.

Our lovely black Christmas tree, in its second year, was decorated with red lights, white poinsettias and white feather decorations, some from Pier 1, others ebay.  I think it came out beautifully.

I especially enjoyed the large feathered peacock tree topper that we used this year. I forgot to take a picture of it on top of the tree so I have the ebay pix!

And then of course for our family tradition of “Torture Alpha Hubby” there are snowmen ON the tree – some feathered, some not.  Just to break it up, a feathered owl and feathered angel wings.

My favorite thing, though, is this:

There are considerably LESS under the tree than previous years.  I’m thinking Alpha Hubby has snuck around and taken his blow torch to the snowmen.  He’s threatened to ship them to needy children in the hottest State he can find.  He’s threatened to grill them.  He is not a nice Alpha Hubby.

And if he doesn’t watch out, he’s gonna get coal for Christmas instead of…

I don’t mind him being very, very naughty; just not about my snowmen.  No, I’m afraid there won’t be any of this under the Christmas tree this year:

It will be more like this coming to visit him:

With their angry leader:

Oh poo. You know I can’t do it.  I can’t let the angry snowmen take away the love of my life.  I would miss him too much.

Sigh.

I guess that’s the price you pay when you marry your best friend, your true love, the man who quotes movies to you, especially this one from Sweet Home Alabama when she asked, “Why would you want to marry me for, anyhow?”:

So I think it’s a safe bet that I’m gonna keep him.  He really is “all that!”.
