Also, our tree is wild. It needs some serious trimming, but at this point, I think I'll just let it be.
Here is Sydney about to put the first ornament on the tree. It took me a while to finally put lights on it (I appreciate pre-lit trees more than ever now!), and we went with colored lights (something new for us).
All lit up, sans ornaments.
It took me a few more days after finishing the lights to finish putting the ornaments on, and Wednesday night I made the garland I had been wanting to make.
(You can't see the star tree topper because the branch it is on sticks up at least a foot above the rest of the tree, ha!)
Perhaps I will post another picture once there are presents underneath.
By the front door:
Lone Christmas bear:
Christmas cards (on the wall between the dining area and kitchen):
Avon Advent calendar:
Kitchen bar (bad lighting, sorry):
There you have it, folks!
