The long holiday weekend without a packed schedule allowed me to compress a three-day process into two days.
I present to you the big, big tree:
The new ornament roster:
Kris Kringle and Topper
Sam the Snowman:
Little Cindy Lou Who:
This one I customized with a white paint pen to celebrate our gorgeous, brilliant, and crazy Lulu coming into our life this year:
The first graham cracker s’more I like…
A pair of gift-wrapped puppies:
A christmas tree:
Mermaid on the half-shell:
Adding to the beer collection:
Ma-ma-ma-my friend Yoda:
This one is essentially our front door rendered in glass, how do I pass that up…?
Santa as the man-in-the-moon:
The Love Bus™
We need one of these on every tree:
According to my husband, we’ll never have enough robots…
Just hanging around the christmas tree:
Krampus just showed up last night. He’s so awesome, can’t beat that with a stick!
I thrifted two old light strands with a total of twenty of these frosted, plastic pinecones. I learned from last year’s poinsettia experience that these light reflectors are rare finds.
I discarded the light strands and slipped these over color-changing LEDs on the big tree and, wow-oh-wow, do they ever amplify light!
