I had to share our Texas style Christmas tree from Uvalde, Texas (about 40 minutes from Mexico). This tree can truly persevere the Texas heat. Yes, that is prickly pear cactus growing out of green painted coffee cans. Who says we don't recycle?
During this rushed and financially tight holiday season, try to enjoy the things you may take for granted. Spend the time to fix your hair, complete with silk flower poinsettas.
Break out the Legos and build what ever cool thing your heart desires.
Enjoy a family meal cooked all from scratch by your grandmother.
Eat so much that you feel like you could not possibly hold another ounce, and retire to the couch.
Be sure to give everyone a hug and say "I Love You".
You may even have to put up with a little BS. Just remember, they love you enough to pick on you. Have a safe holiday season from my family to yours.
