McKinney Airport Decorating Project

Earlier this year, I was offered the opportunity to decorate the lobby area at the McKinney National Airport.  As a pilot, you can only imagine my joy and excitement at the chance to decorate an airport…but especially the airport I fly out of!

My Upside-Down Christmas Tree 2013

Here we are, Christmas Eve and I finally get around to sharing some pictures of my tree this year.  It’s hanging from the ceiling, of course, as it has for the last 4 years.  This year, it’s silver and white with splashes of red.
