    They didn't work last year, either, Steph? I'd have taken the tree back then. If it jsut stopped THIS year, thger might be a kink in the internal wiring or something.

    Gee, I hope you can get it working.
    Yep - but they worked initially this year.

    I just spent 3 hours on one stats problem. Dh just brought ds back . .. . can't study now. I can't do this with distractions. Taking a break . . maybe read him a book and see if he will take a nap.

    Well......my tree looks like that....or it will when I get finished. All I need is a little pixie dust........maybe alot of pixie dust.

    Hmmmmm......but I suppose I'd have to make my house bigger first.

    Thanks he should be out on the step down unit today.
    It's amazing how well ppl do after such a major surgery.
    Usually out of the hospital in 4-5 days.
    But still a few weeks of recovery, yet.

    Baby steps.

    GOOD'n , Zoe !!! :chuckle

    I'm sure it would work.. I can see Spidey and Steph BOTH zonked out! :zzzzz


    OK.. just had s'getti supper with garlic bread, on tv table trays in the living room as we watched Oprah and Obama make the grand entrance in Iowa.
    Was packed full there.

    Got all my Christmas decos done today.. except for the tree which I will do tomorrow. That won't take long. Heh.
    Even found the door wreath and put up some lights and pretties around the door.

    That's enough for this year. I'm amazed I even did THAT. Just still can't believe it's nearly Christmas.. and it will be over again SO SOON. :stone
    Ah well.

    DH had a good day of golf, and he just put on a fresh pot of coffee and is playing with the Min Min. Her squeaky toy is going wild out there in the living room !

    My tummy is too full.

    Will go watch the news awhile................

    christmas in holland:
    in mid-november dutch television broadcasts the official arrival of st. nicholaas and his helper black piet live. coming by steamer from spain, each year they dock in the harbor of a different city or village. wearing a traditional bishop's robes, sinterklaas rides into town on a white horse to be greeted by the mayor. in the weeks before st. nicholaas day, december 5th, sinterklaas goes around the country to determine if the children have behaved. he and his black piet helpers visit children in schools, hospitals, department stores, and even at home. the bakeries make speculaas, a molded spice cookie of the saint. during this time children put out their wooden shoes with wish-lists and a carrot or maybe a saucer of water, for the horse. when st. nicholaas comes by children find their initials made of chocolate, candy treats, and little gifts in their shoes.
    the dutch celebrate sinterklaas on december 5th with family parties which is when gifts are exchanged. the dutch feast of saint nicholaas is about giving, for "it is in giving that we receive." in holland there are two christmas days, december 25th and 26th. both are celebrated as a quiet holiday with family and friends.
