But back in the festive interior of the house. After we finished our tree getting adventure that you can read about here, we brought it into the house and got it firmly set up in the tree stand. Doesn't it look pretty?
Once we cut off the twine it started looking a little more festive. Dan even posed all pretty while he put the star on top.
We decorated the tree together while listening to Christmas music. I put up all the "boring" decorations like Christmas balls and Dan put up the "fun decorations" that have happy memories along with them. Here are some of the fun ones.
The tree looks fabulous and I'm totally in love with it. Whenever I'm home I turn the lights on and just bask in it's festiveness.
I then ran around the rest of the house dispersing decorations here and there. I snapped a couple pictures of some of my favourites.
|I added my creche scene to my cork tree display|
|My banner from Cora my first Christmas away from home|
|Pretty white lights on top of the piano|
|My homemade decorations from last year|
|And some snowman cuteness|
Can you tell how much she loved them? :P
And just to flaunt, we sent out 50 personal Christmas cards and 60 business Christmas cards. Here are the two separate piles of cards. Are you impressed?
