I meant to do this post a couple weeks ago, but I got buried in all the holiday baking hoopla and recipe extravaganza, and I just never got to it.
I actually have me a Blog Book to keep me organized and write down my blog post ideas as well as when I want to post them, but it's buried somewhere on my desk and I cannot get to it.
What a loser, huh?
Oh well, here goes my short and sweet tour of our holiday decorations.
First off is our tree. Every year since Peanut Head and I got married, we've gotten a live tree. We love to get tall, skinny, sparse trees reminiscent of a Charlie Brown Christmas.
It's not because we feel sorry for the skinny trees, but because we like the whole minimalist look.
That, and our house is tinsyish and we like to be able to still have walking room in our living room when the tree is up.
Here is my recent fall decor purchase updated with Christmasey red glitter balls and ornaments. The Santa Man was made by my sweet Sister-in-Law, Marcia.
Just a few things up high. Remember, I don't dust.
I got this pillow on clearance after Christmas last year and I'm so excited to have real furniture to put it on this year.
We had been getting by for far too long with a mish mash of furniture left over from our lean college years.
Here's the other pillow. It says Naughty on one side and Nice on the other. I keep turning it to Naughty and Thing 1 keeps turning it to Nice. She's getting quite irritated with me, but I'm having sooooo much fun with her.
This is the first stocking that I cross stitched. I started it before Peanut Head and I even got married, and it took me a year or so to finish.
Here's Thing 1's stocking.
Detail on Thing 1's stocking.
And finally, my stocking. I'm very sad to say that I am still working on Stinkerbell's stocking. She's five now, and I'm not even half way finished. I'm hoping to spend some serious hours on the couch working on it after all the Christmas festivities.
This is just one of the pieces in our front yard. Peanut Head tends to outdo himself in the front yard. I only took this one picture though, because it's 11 degrees outside right now.
You think I'm kidding because I like to exaggerate, but I'm stone cold serious right now. It's frigid outside.
Anyway, I wanted you to focus on the Snow Roll that Mr. Snowman has goin' on.
I have not been letting him in to eat the treats, so I have no idea where he got that.
Here's a side view just in case you think he's hot and you want a little more.
