Dec The Halls

I have been so excited for Christmas this year and have spent the last two days making my home festive. Last Friday, and all day Saturday, (it took forever.) I made a garland to go around our family room. For having no idea what I was doing I think it turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself.

Notice that in all my excitement for Christmas I have not completed my painting that I began in October. I need to decide on a color for my plant shelves and get them done. I'm thinking maybe red.

Today Dave and I went and picked out a Christmas tree, brought it home and decorated it. I think it is so beautiful. But when comparing it to last year's Charlie Brown tree anything does.

Last year's tree sure did have a lot of character though. Dave and I thought that it was perfect for our first year of marriage. We learned from last year, that Christmas trees are expensive, so we saved a bit more, and were able to get a tree that's branches weren't quite so sparse.

Only 16 more days until Christmas!

Your tree looks good--and that's saying something because they never look quite as good in pictures. Can't wait to see it in person.

P.S. I think I'm going to just bring your b-day present when we come for Christmas if that's alright. I can mail it, but I don't think that it will get there in time (I forgot a couple of supplies at the store and so was unable to finish it this weekend).

Your tree really does look good. Where did you get all those cool crocheted ornaments?
