Later we'll have some pumpkin pie and we'll do some caroling

Oh yeah, I never gave you looks into our own Christmas trees for the 2019-20 season. Have a few pictures, please.

Our downstairs tree, the larger and the one we have to move a bookshelf for.

The angel-bunny tree topper. Also one of the glass candy canes that we got at ... I want to say Santa's Workshop in Colorado, but I bet I'm wrong.

Some of the ornaments commemorating poor Columbo, whom we knew too short a while. Notice the wood-cut ornament has a carrot-themed ribbon bunny_hugger got to decorate March Hare Madness pinball trophies.

The downstairs tree illuminated only by its own decorations. The bright cyan pieces are Hallmark Keepsake ornaments themed to amusement park rides and that play a song together.

Our stairwell and the front door, illuminated also.

And here's the upstairs tree. This is always a smaller one but that doesn't mean it's not adorable too.

The nook into which the tree fits. The door there leads to the attic so we try to not need the attic for December.

Close look at some of the decorations of the upstairs tree.

Currently Reading: Cities and the Sea: Port City Planning in Early Modern Europe, Josef W Konvitz. I ... think I'm not going to get useful advice for playing SimCity 2000 out of this.
