Garrett and I put up our Christmas tree the day after his family left to go home from our Thanksgiving visit. We had Christmas music playing on the record player, glasses of wine and, for the size of our apartment, tons of boxes of stuff to go through and things to put up. The cats helped by getting into every single box that they could fit into and by chewing on the bottom limbs of the tree when they didn't think we were looking. I think they were just trying to help us "fluff" the tree.
My sweet hubby brought in all of the boxes for us. I feel like this picture doesn't do much justice to how many Christmas things we have. Maybe I just feel like we have so much because we don't have enough space to put it all. Ohhh to have a big house...
A couple of our Christmas records. We got these from thrifts stores for $1.99 each! Worth it!
Putting up the tree!
A "Christmas vase" filled with thrift store finds! : )
Junior had fun playing in the tissue paper. No, he's not drunk. He can't keep his eyes open when there is even a hint of a camera flash.
These are handmade ornaments by my husband himself when he was little! It's ok, you can laugh. They are pretty funny but SO cute and I am so glad that we have these!
And these Disney ornaments were mine from when I was little and had my first tiny Christmas tree in my room! I love these and hope to give them to my kids for their first tree someday.
Good 'ole self timer! Take 1, 2, and 3! Look at the cats in the second picture. Silly gatos!
We hope that you have had fun putting up your tree's and Christmas decorations, it is such a great time of year and you have to enjoy it to it's fullest!
Not much longer until we are home with our families!!
I wanna know, what is your favorite thing about Christmas?
