Lobster Pot Christmas Tree Lighting TODAY!

Were getting ready for the first OFFICIAL lighting today.
Lopes Square in Provincetown 5 p.m. EST
Be there or be square.
Dad's got the crane ready, hes putting bows on it as I type. This is a photo of the top of the tree, where we will raise it over the tree pyramid and then do a countdown a la new years style. The when the two connect SHAZAM! LIGHT!!!
(I know I didnt post about the building of it yet the whole event isnt over yet!)
Today were expecting 30 mph average winds coming off the ocean (were next to the pier) and a storm bringing rain. Oh boy.
But THATS OKAY! I made cookies!

Hot apple cider will be served by Moi, along with hot cocoa. Well, the newspaper reported that hot cocoa will be served, but I think we have more cider. Its an awesome 60 degrees outside, so cider seems appropriate. (dads good idea)

I also made some special stickers for the event, hoping everyone will wear a little badge of Love.

And my secret little suprise that I still haven't given my family yet....I know its cheesy, but heck I love the Cosby's. (I even said heck to prove it.) I made matching scarves in red and green for the 7 memebrs of my family that will be there. The top little one is for the teeny little 3-year-old that I adore. These were made in about 20 minutes and only came to about $1. each! I got some non-pill fleece which doenst fray at all, and seems softer than regular fleece. I just cut it into strips and scalloped the edges of the girly ones. Nice! So I will give these out and I know my dad will think its great. This is HIS project and I want to make it the best event for him.

So, I'm off to work on a few more things for the day and will certainly report back on everything. Oh yeah, you can watch us live here from a webcam! Click HERE to watch, then click on "Chamber of Commerce" camera icon. Be patient with it too.

Some computers have to install a viewer, but if you want to see us.....

The tree looks great! I wish I could have been there to enjoy the cookies and cider. The kids would have loved the crane hoisting the topper onto the tree. Maybe next year we can plan ahead:)
