Decorating for Christmas 2012 at our house happened last night. We were going to skip having a tree this year due to limited space and a tight budget, but then we happened upon this little bargain and couldn't pass up the opportunity... Don't worry. It's not crooked in real life. After we got the tree put up, we sat down and shared a cup of peppermint hot chocolate together. Mmmmm.... all while listening to Christmas music with this delicious scented candle burning in the background. Today I will be making gifts and baking cookies!
Want to know a secret? I don't thoroughly enjoy Christmas baking. It wears me out and the dishes afterward are a nightmare because I have to do them all by hand. But my husband loves freshly baked cookies, so today I will sacrifice a wee bit and bless my man.
How are your Christmas preparations coming along?
