So to cope with a lack of writing material, I would spend time scoffing at everything that had to do with Christmas. That was until two years ago.
Two years ago I had my very first tree. And I have to say, I'm hooked. Last year I joined Connor's family as we cut down the tree ourselves. But this year is the first year I've had my own household to take care of, so this is a special Christmas tree.
We have Christmas sloths!
I liked the way I had done my first Christmas tree, so Connor and I used lights, popcorn, and wooden beads made to look like cranberries. I don't want to collect and store very many ornaments, but I was fond of this cardinal. Turns out the cardinal is the Kentucky state bird. It matches my Kentucky husband.
I also found some felt mistletoe. Connor noticed it immediately when he got back home from work.
I've added little decorations here and there, and I'm so pleased with how our house is looking. And every time I go out to the store, I enjoy browsing the Christmas do-dads.
I still don't like Christmas music very much though. I think I'll just stick to the candles.
