My contribution for this week’s challenge…

It’s Not This Time of Year Without…

~~~~~

Usually this weekend, or next Christmas

starts to happen in our household.

In 2005 I did not have a camera which would

capture all of our tree in one shot without tilting.

When straightened in Picasa I lost

the star…hence both shots.

It’s our turn for the family Christmas again this year,

so this is also on our mind about now.

Well maybe MGW’s mind more than mine. 🙂

We may need to expand the 2013 table as

our family has grown a bit since then.

For reasons unknown, in 2015 fifteen we decided

that a little Christmas tree was in order.

 Only immediate family for Christmas.

MGW just told me that this tree went in the bin/trash

soon after Christmas due to complaints from boys

about not having the big Christmas tree

which they never helped erect anyway!

Yep!

They said it wasn’t Christmas without our green tree.

So, in 2016 we will be erecting our green tree again.

Complete with Christmas decorations from

nearly every city we visited in Europe,

as well as a Dubai bauble,

because this year it is again our turn to

host the family Christmas.

I must confess to preferring the green tree.

Definitely more Australian.

And, of course, it’s time for me to begin

practising my

“Bah!! Humbug!!”

again 😀

I confess to borrowing an image from

Ironman Outdoors

which appeared on my Face Book news feed.

wife

I shared it on my timeline on Thursday morning.

I think it fitting for his challenge

even if some people on Face Book

have given me a few

good natured digs about it.
