I did it! Took the whole long Thanksgiving weekend with lots of breaks, but I got all my decorations up. Now, time to move on to making presents.
You ready for beautiful gorgeousness?
First, I picked up my tiny live tree in a pot. I tried to put lights on them, but it is so tiny, the lights just fell off.
So, new theory, I hung lights on the wall behind it. And that gave me space to put nativity scenes around it. It’s lovely!
Just a few more touches to finish it off, my car of course:
And then when I went over to my parents, I brought my oldest fake tree (first one a bought, it has Mickey and Minnie on the base!) for my bedroom.
My parents aren’t as big on decorations as I am, so for the living room I brought over a nice simple small decoration, a light up Christmas shark.
And that’s it! Decorating done! Much less this year than previous years, partly because I’m home all the time. 5 trees and lights in every window is nice for a few hours after work, but is a bit much when you live with it 24 hours.
Oh right, one more thing, Genevieve sent a photo of her creche which is such perfection I wish we could all emulate it:
