I took these photos less than a 1/2 hour ago. This is what is looks like outside right now. These were taken from the front door of where I work. The forecast has it snowing and possibly sleeting for the rest of the day and night. There is a possibility that we will be working from home tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed. We will definitely have a white Christmas.
This year with the organization taking place in the craft cellar and many crafty items stacked on top of my large tree, I decided to put up a small tree. I wasn't into the moving of furniture and all that so I picked up what I thought was a red tree (pickings were slim just a week before X-mas at the craft store). This one came pre-lit and all I had to do was pick up some ornaments.
Last Thursday I took a vacation day and Rick and I went down to the Museum of Science and Industry to walk around. I wanted to see the Christmas trees from around the world. Here are two pictures of the main tree in the center of the rotunda.
My paternal side is German so here is the tree for Germany and some of the ornaments.
