i've realized that i am not good at decorating for the holidays. first of all, most of my stuff is super old or hand-me-downs, so it's not like i've got awesome things to work with. also, i hate clutter and our house is pretty small so i get annoyed easily (that sentence could probably stop right there) with the annual furniture rearrangement to fit the tree in the living room.
|if sean ever claims i never do anything for him, remind him he has a cowboy's stocking.|
also, people keep telling me i'm going to have the baby before christmas (well, mostly my mom. who is neither a doctor nor a psychic, so we're good.) so i'm wary of overdoing it and having to take all this crap down. either with a newborn or with a 39 week large belly.
so consider this brief holiday tour as my public service to make you feel better about your decorations! i mean, i have an un-garland'd banister! someone should take my blog away from me!
|i actually love these trees and got them just a few years ago.|
if i am still pregnant (i'm sure i will be- i know most first timers go passed their due date) and feeling somewhat human, i'd really love to hit up the after christmas sales to buy some new stuff. i think i say this every year though and it never happens. and then the cycle starts over next year.
i did continue the tradition of making a very ugly ornament for my niece, anna. last year i used some leftover fabric from her nursery to sew a very lopsided star. this year? a felt "anna". (that says anna, you guys)
i hope she likes it?
