Swaddled Trees and Flash Mobs

I am working on something really big to post, but it's taking me awhile.

In the mean time... We got our tree today.  It's big and full - not as big as we usually get, but a perfect size for our little cottage, I think.  I can't wait to decorate it with lights and ornaments!  We went out today to buy a new tree skirt, as our old one got lost in the move.  We looked at The Christ.mastree Shoppe and Bos.covs Department Store and couldn't find anything we liked.  So, my mom came up with the idea of using one of our Christmasy tablecloths (since our dining room table is up in my Mom's bedroom due to lack of a Dining Room!)  It looks great in my opinion and kind of reminds me of how in "A Charlie Brown Christmas" Charlie uses Linus's blue blanket to swaddle the bottom of the tree.  

















Oh, in other news - watch this AWESOME video!!  I've always been a little envious of those who go to Carolina, as they are soooo school spirited there and have amazing athletic teams.

Here comes Carolina-lina.
Here comes Carolina-lina.
We hail from NCU.
We've got the spirit in it.
We've got the team to win it.
We wear the colors white and blue,
So it's fight, fight, fight for Carolina
As Davey did in days of old
As we gather round the Well
Cheer that Tar Heel team like hell
For the glory of NCU.

I'm a Tar Heel born.
I'm a Tar Heel bred.
And when I die I'll be a Tar Heel dead.
So it's rah rah Carolina-lina.
Rah rah Carolina-lina.
Rah rah Carolina-lina--go to hell State!
