Christmas Decorating!

Let's not kid ourselves, I took my Christmas decorations out the day after Thanksgiving like everyone else. (ok, not everyone else.) We got our first real tree last year and I am pleased to say that a real one this year has been just as wonderful! There is definitely a part of me that wishes I could keep Christmas decorations up all year. If only it were socially acceptable!

Christmas Town!

 Both the knitted angel and cross ornament are from my mom :)

Candle wreaths from Margo (thank you!)
We got those flameless candles from Alex's sweet step mom last year for Christmas. They're from Nate Berkus, made of real wax, they have a remote control and are obviously baller.

Trying to prove "anyone can do it". fail.

 I would be watching how the Grinch stole Christmas but I recently had a nightmare that the Grinch was a real 7 foot tall monster. He saw me from across the room at a bar and I spent the rest of the dream running from him. He was filthy and evil and I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it.. So instead I'm watching Poltergeist and crafting all day long. Pretty much the best 12/12/12 I could have hoped for. :)


  1. Yeah, I still don't have our decorations up. Yours look awesome though!!
