Rough Ride & Decorating the log staircase
It was a miracle we made it to the log cabin on Saturday. It is a 3 hour drive to our place and it ended up taking us 5 hours due to the weather, spin outs and standstill traffic. At one point, people were turning around on the freeway and going back up the wrong way ramp! (Okay, I admit, we were one of those people, but I had to go to the bathroom!) But we were determined to make it to the cabin. Of course we had plans to go to a Christmas festival but Greg accidentally drove my car into a ditch. So by the time the tow truck arrived and pulled us out - we only had time left to go grab a meal. Transportation was not in our favor this day.
On to better things, I decorated the log staircase with garland (bought from Garden Ridge - $3.00 per 9 feet) and added ribbons and other decorative Christmas ware. What do you think? (And should I add lights?)
