Many communities offer Christmas tree recycling options...but this year, we decided to recycle our Christmas tree by feeding it to our little goats...what could be more eco-friendly than that? lol

We had a good one...it was a very different kind of holiday than usual. We spent most of Christmas Eve driving! We had driven from Greenville to Temple on Tuesday night so that we could attend my extended family's annual luncheon. I have never missed one in all of my 39 years. Our younger son had to miss it...he stayed in Greenville because he had to work. So SugarDaddy & I went to the dinner...it is always great seeing my cousins and their kids!
Then we left at about 3 and headed back to GVegas to pick up son from work...ate at the Bi-Lo Deli while waiting on son. And then drove back to Temple, GA. All in all, about 10 hours drive time.
We got home...put the young nephew and niece to bed and did our 'Christmasy' chores...finally getting into bed at 2:30am...zzz...zzz
Can you believe those wacky kids were up at 5:48am?
I was soo tired! lol
I have posted pics of our little tree. That is my nephew & 'niece', who decorated it!

i had a couple of suggestions about leaving the scarf long and skinny...which i would if the scarf was for a woman... but since it is going to a guy, i feel that it needs a little more width to it.
do guys wear skinny scarves?
anyway... just wanted to post a few pics to show that I have been working on it... although I didn't get much done this weekend... my older son and dil came up from Georgia to visit!!! We all had such a great time...I just love it when the whole family is together... makes me dread the day our younger son decides to fly the coop...sigh
But it has character... where else can you pull into an enchanted deer forest to feed little deer (descended from the deer in the movie 'Prancer') by hand? There is also a walk-thru section with a bonfire where you can buy hotdogs & marshmallows to roast. And you can get hot chocolate to sip on as you listen to Christmas music and look at goats, llamas, buffalo, long-horned cattle, camels, reindeer, zebras, donkeys, and ze-donks (so cute! but my camera wouldn't get a good shot).
It's truly a unique holiday experience.
but be forewarned, traffic into the place was HORRENDUS! We waited in line for 3 HOURS. And there is NO traffic control...Hollywild could really benefit from hiring a police officer to direct traffic!

We were a little sad to see that many in the neigborhood were not participating. We talked with the one Light Person we saw... she said this was the darkest the neighborhood had been in the last 19 years.
But we still enjoyed the lights that were on.
