|Running around, being silly at the tree place|
We face the problem of furniture, inconveniently placed heating vents, fireplace, front door, stairs and an awkward corner. I think we've worked it out this year, and while it's a little tight, I like it. The tree is now settling nicely, and tomorrow we'll have the fun job of decorating it, as long as I get the lights on properly.
I'm in the hunt for a bigger tree skirt, but I get the feeling it'll be another year before I find the one I want. (ie- before I get around to making the one I want.) The one I have is kind of cute, with stand up Santa, Reindeer and snowman- but it's only 40" and I really want a bigger skirt. I'm also in need of a new star- ours is very old and falling apart, sadly. One of the funniest debates that I lost over the years seems to be the Star versus Angel debate. I don't really mind- the star has grown on me. Of course, I grew up with an adorable plastic canvas tree topper. It was an Angel...holding a star.
It feels more Christmas-y around here now. I think all we need now is a little snow. Sorry, Southerners...but if there's no snow, I'm just not 100% feeling the Christmas season.
