Christmas is Coming
We went for a different look this year. The "yard tree" is a tradition in our neighborhood. Each street has a tree coordinator who orders them in November. It's so pretty to see them down the street!
We had an ornament casualty this year. My helper dropped the glass pickle in the kitchen and it shattered. We bought another pickle and I dropped it getting out of the bag. Our friends then gave us a new one for Christmas and so far it is doing okay!
Since our family is probably complete, it was time for new stockings. Instead of ordering some, I decided to make some. TT & I were wondering what I was thinking, but in the end, I think they came out quite nice. LT was nice enough to be sick one day, so I had to stay home from work and was able to finish them up. It turns out they weren't as big as they could have been! I still had trouble fitting everything in. We don't have a mantel, so we're not quite sure where to put them.
