‘Tis the Christmas Season!

Our Christmas tree!

So, now that Thanksgiving is over, it is time to get ready for Christmas.  Living in a Paris apartment doesn’t give you a lot of room to store a lot of Christmas stuff.  So, my wife Amanda and I only make do with a small ceramic Christmas tree that she got from her Grandmother when she died a few years ago.  It is just the right size and has sentimental value at the same time.  When we came to France, I converted it over to 220 VAC so that it would work fine over here.

So, you can see our Christmas tree now, but this was more of an way for me to try posting pictures.  I’ve got to get some more stuff up here.  Maybe I’ll start posting my beer brewing sessions—that way I’ll have a permanent record of them and if anyone is interested, they can see what I’m working on.  Only 3-more weeks until we’re back in the States!  Looking forward to it.
