Happy December! Its hard to believe the last month of 2009 is upon us. I can remember when Christmas was 100 days away, now its only 24! This is my favorite time of year. I love the smell of the Christmas candles we burn, the beautiful lights on the street, cutting down our Christmas tree, and enjoying a nice cup of hot chocolate on a snowy day. This weekend A & I got all the decorations up and the lights outside. Most of the decor is the same from last year but we did add a few new things. My favorite thing is our S'more tree. We've been collecting these ornaments for the past few years and thought they desired a tree of their own.
On Black Friday I also took advantage of Michael's 25% off coupon (that worked on sale items!!). I made this wreath for about $25 which is better than the one they had in the store for $75!
I like the way it turned out. I learn how to hang it without putting a nail in the front of the door here
I'm on the hunt for some red placemats to finish off the dining room. Any suggestions??
I'm really digging the skinny legged snowmen. I was so excited to buy the one on the left last year after Christmas =) More pictures to come!
This weekend we are cutting down our tree. Last year was our first year doing so, and I hope its a tradition we keep up. I can not wait to have the smell of a fresh Christmas tree in the house!
