Our new tree, all decorated up! Since it’s bigger than the old tree I was worried we wouldn’t have enough ornaments, but we definitely do! Every year I like to buy a couple new ones anyway, and this year I was all about white birds.
I’m not sure why these two little white birds are right next to each other. I haven’t done any ornament rearranging yet (AMAZING I KNOW) but if I do this is what I’ll change.
Symphony had to climb on Taylor’s shoulders to put up the star- she was VERY ANXIOUS about being up that high and clutched on to his hair until I pried her fingers free. She managed to get the star up without further incident.
I haven’t done much other decorating around the house. I need to find a good spot for my nativity scene, and last year i also decorated some of the light fixtures. Symphony put out something though.
Our collection of Perler bead snowflakes in the window.
She made the penguins at school last year and the Christmas tree at her grandmas house.
We had lots of snacks and ordered pizza, but here is what I made: cherry chip mini-doughnuts from that weird cake mix, glazed & with red sprinkles; and golden cupcakes, white cake with vanilla frosting and gold sprinkles.
Symphony wore this very festive shirt from Zara. She actually asked me to take this picture for lookbook, haha!
I wore a grey tank top (SHOCKING!) and actually did my hair (ACTUALLY SHOCKING!).
Taylor wore a dog.
KIDDING. This picture is from last week. My husband has a penchant for putting dogs in his sweaters.
Georgie practiced looking innocent and then later she found a bird ornament I missed when I was going through the decorations box and chewed its head off most gruesomely. It’s been predicted that it will not be her last Christmas transgression.
Rich and Jenn were also here but I didn’t get any pictures of them, except one weird one of Jenn when she’s bent over decorating and just looks like a black blob, and Rich staring creepily from behind the tree when Sym was putting the star up, so I’m not posting those. I need to get better at capturing these precious memories, for real. Anyway, we drank tons of wine, ate an entire bowl of salso con queso and watched Scrooged, a movie I haven’t seen since I was a kid and which was a lot weirder than I remembered! Symphony didn’t want to watch it so she just watch Powerpuff Girls videos on youtube and then went to bed, but since we aren’t spending Christmas together we’re having a mini-Christmas next week, and I think that’ll call for a viewing of Elf in our traditional Christmas pajamas (note to self: buy Christmas pajamas).
