I finally put our Christmas tree up today. We were waiting because Holly is sure to destroy it; then we were waiting for Andrew to summon the courage to forge a path through our attic to find the Christmas decorations. Finally, I put my foot down and decided that it was happening today, for Pete's sake. I mean, it's December 20th! Geez.
I found these cute green lights and the light-up star toward the top of one of the boxes. I got them both on clearance last year I think, because I feel like I should never pay full price for Christmas decorations. (Well, really I feel like I should never pay full price for anything...but that's another story for another day.) Anyway, I don't think we'll be making it into the pages of House Beautiful anytime soon, but it's cute and it's just right for us this year. What with an 18-month-old and all that.
Now I'm starting to feel the Christmas spirit! I'm ready to go finish wrapping all of the presents. I can't wait to see them all under the tree on Christmas Eve.
