Henry VII

We had our first snowfall of the season yesterday in NY, and it was beautiful. The first one always is. With the snow falling, we decorated our Christmas tree, formally known as Henry VII. We name our trees, and they've all been Henry (just because of the street we live on). I vow this year, after January 6th, to take Henry VII to the local park where he will be made into mulch that goes into Central Park. I think it's such a sad visual, the day after Christmas, when all of the bare trees are on the sidewalk. But that's a ways from now. Right now Henry VII is all dressed up, and looking sweet. The new addition to our tree this year, is a flock of birds that decided to perch on Henry's branches. We have a wood thrush, a cardinal, a blue jay, and 9 other assorted song birds. Hopefully they know some Christmas carols.

V, Henry looks great :)

Our tree is a bit of a mess, but a happy Christmas mess, so you know, the good kind! We're supposed to get rid of half the boxes... again.

See you soon :)
