You might be a Redneck......

This picture has nothing to do with my post.

Angel sitting and watching me looking very innocent and regal. Trust me, she isn't!

We are finally trying to get into the holiday spirit. Dh and Skater went and got a tree on Friday. It sat on the deck until Sunday in a bucket of water. After Church we finally said lets do this thing! So in it came. It was put mostly in the corner to sit until after dinner - which was at Drummers. Thank you DIL it was fantastic! After we got the tree in Dh saw all the pine needles all through the kitchen. He decided that instead of using THE BROOM he would get his leaf blower out. Isn't he special! NOW I will admit it worked. However a bit overkill if you ask me. I could only stand and laugh and think OH I'm living a Jeff Foxworthy Redneck joke right now! Then I grabbed the camera.

Cleaning up.

Trying to blow me over! Not happening Cupcake!

At least he was thorough.

When we got home from dinner we decorated the tree.

Then because I have clogged the vacuum EVERY year with pine needles and we don't have a shop vac' DH got the blower out again and put it on suck instead of blow and sucked up the worst of it!

Dh's little helper! Monkey was having a bit too much fun! LOL After they went to bed I "fixed" the tree and called it a night.

Have a blessed week!



  1. As funny as that is I did think for a minute that there might be something to using the blower...it flitted through my head about using it in my house instead of sweeping...just blow it all back outside :)

    He might have been on to something...

  2. OH I laugh every time I think of this!
