My friend Kristin came over to help me decorate last week, and then last weekend Dave went out and purchased lights to put on the front of the house. We both initially wanted white lights, but they seemed to be out of stock everywhere Dave went. Then, when we thought about it, we decided that colored lights would probably be better because they'll be a lot more exciting for Krewson in a couple years. So colored lights it is. :)
We'll need another stocking next year!
Last year my artificial Christmas tree broke as I was trying to put it up. So I rushed out to Big Lots and found the cheapest tree I could. Hence my 3-ft itty-bitty Christmas tree. I think we may go shopping for something nicer at the after-Christmas sales this year. :)
This little village and ice skating rink was one of my favorite decorations when I was little.
My mom passed it on. :)
I love this snowman. He's so cute, and he lights up and swirls all kinds of beautiful colors. Too bad the batteries leaked between last winter and now. :( It's on our to-do list to try to fix the corrosion.
Two more of my favorite decorations. The lights on the tree light up, if I'd get a new bulb for inside. And the snowman lost his nose (see it laying next to him?). Wow, all my decorations are broken. :(
It's like the toys from Rudolph.
And finally, Dave's beautiful lights on the front of the house. We'll probably add more as the years pass, but I figured those were pretty good to start. :)
So what are YOU doing to decorate for Christmas??
