Well, I wish the chandelier needed cleaning only once a year, but that happens twice. It's enough work that it justifies a picture at the end.
Mom, Leslie, and I made felt ornaments the week before Christmas. I made a Penny, a Pearl, and a Ron:
I used beads and sequins for the fluff collars and Ron has fancy antlers. (His nickname in high school was Moose, so it works.)
Christmas Eve came and went in a blur.
And we actually had some semblance of a white Christmas. We ended up with a pretty thick coating, but it was pretty much gone by lunch time the next day.
I tried to remember to use my Fuji Instax like I did last year--a lot can change in a year ...
|Literally, my first thought Christmas morning was, "I forgot to tell Jeff how much I liked his outfit." I can't tell if my morning thoughts are clearer if I do drink or if I don't. It's bad both ways.|
The house was empty by 11pm, and I still hadn't taken any pictures (the whole month) of our tree or any of the decorations. I had to take a few before I went up to bed.
We went to my mom's the next morning:
Of course, there were presents to be had:
|I was really proud of the faux bois paper I found at TJMaxx ($3 yay!)|
|My gift from Leslie|
I hope you had a lovely Christmas and that everyone gets to enjoy some time-off this week ...
