Listen. I'm moving in two weeks. I'm not going to put up a tree that I'll just take down. My small box of Christmas decorations will not be unpacked before the move. This is a bit sad for me. One of my most favorite parts of being married was having my own little space to get festive. I love to over-celebrate holidays.
This year, I forgot what day Christmas was on. Because my halls are decked with cardboard, packaging tape, and finals.
HOWEVAH! I am desperately trying to bring in at least a little holiday cheer:
I realized I never showed up on here with a picture of the ornaments I made for my mom's annual ornament party!
I ended up finishing these at 3:30am the morning of the party- but I think they still turned out pretty cute. And they were a hit- which was my goal. Because I'm Lorna Sylvester's daughter and I have a lot to live up to. Because Lorna Sylvester makes stuff like this:
Seriously. How does she do it?!
Both ornament patterns were found in Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Craft magazine.
You know you want one.
Also, today, Scott and I watched Polar Express and, fittingly, drank hot chocolate.
I wasn't satisfied though. And I got this idea from the kids I was jealous of in church today... I printed off some coloring pages online. And I made my grown-man color Christmas pages with me. With crayons.
'Tis the season, eh?
