My husband, who is my most trusted adviser and constructive critic in all areas of my life (even when I need to know whether or not I look fat in a certain outfit--which he has assured me, each and every time I ask this, I never do), read my blog post yesterday and astutely observed that perhaps when I announced I was having a contest where people guess how many Christmas ornaments I have, I should have included a picture of our decorated tree. How right he is (as always). That probably would have made the contest more fair. I mean, whenever they have one of those "guess how many M & M's are in the jar" contests, you always get to look at the M & M-filled jar before you hazard a guess.
So in the spirit of making this ornament giveaway contest as fair as it can be (because "a lot" of ornaments could mean different things to different people--it could be any number from 100 to 1,000, right?), I'm posting this picture of our 9 and 1/2-foot artificial tree, all decked out for the 2013 Christmas season.
that post and leave me another comment.
I hope when I finish the wooden Santa ornament, it will be at least as good a prize as a jar filled with hundreds and hundreds of M & M's (but that's setting the bar a little high, I think).
