Candy, Trees, Lights, more candy..

Every year in between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Hensons have the annual Gingerbread making, light viewing weekend. We make a complete disaster of Grandma Leslee's house and then load into Grandpa Dave's truck, (yes, the back of the truck) and go see the Christmas lights. So much Christmas spirit is felt, that usually one or more of the kids end up crying and we leave early and go to bed. It's the best. :) Here are some of the highlights:

I spray painted my tree silver this year as an experiment and I'm pleasantly surprised with the results. It turned out looking a bit frosty, not so much flocked, but frosted.

Did you seriously spray paint your tree? I really wanted to spray mine pink but Chup wouldn't let me. He said it wouldn't work and it would take dozens of cans.
I am so sending him this link.

Me again (why do I always do this on your site?) I just realized that you might have a manufactured tree? Mine is real. Maybe that would make a difference in the spray painting quality.

So does that mean you will have a silver tree next year too? Me likey.

Girls, Thanks for the tree comments.. yes, it is a fake tree, that is why it got spray painted. It only took 3 cans of paint, not bad..
