Goodbye Christmas Tree

 It's time to say goodbye...
Since this tree was so much wider than the doorways, getting it into the house created some drama...getting it out will require some trimming...
Looks good!
Ok, where are the girls, this would make a great picture...since they could stand up under it.
Bye bye,
until next year :)

Our Tree!

We looked at a bunch of trees today, this one was very cute, but not going to happen :)
1st stop...
If the rock is gone...Tornado!
 They had a least 2 fires going, it was very nice.
Tree # 1
 Tree # 2
 Tree # 3
 Tree # 4, omg...are we done yet?
It's just not happening.  We finally agreed on this one and it was tagged, bummer.
Next stop, tree farm in Ascutney, VT

Happy Anniversary!

Finally a great reason to check out the Juniper Hill Inn Tavern for dinner, woot woot!  Celebrating our wedding anniversary (just a few days late).  
Greeted and seated and the evening begins as April throws a log into the fireplace.  Music is next and off she goes.  
It's about 5:30pm and we have the tavern to ourselves, we are told it's slow this time of year, plus it was early.
Next, menu and drinks...
  Prices were higher that expected based on the sample tavern menu, but you know what? It's only money.
Harpoon UFO for Bud, a BenMarco Malbec for me, which was so good, I tried to buy a bottle from April! (Found a great deal online @ the Wine Library).

Barbara checks on us, the dinners were excellent.
Flat Iron Steak & Salad, we both highly recommend.

Joyce (Robert's Mom) joined us for a few moments of conversation, which was very nice.  She explained that Robert & Ari were in NY and that she used to be a ballroom dancer (that's so cool)!
I believe the Juniper Hill Inn will be seeing more of us.

Happy Fall & Front Deck Update

Not much color in our backyard, may have to go for a drive :)

Love the mums.

Front deck is looking good, still needs stairs (we'll worry about that next year)!
