It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Today I went over to my mom's house to finish painting the ornaments that we made (and do laundry). I showed up just as she was finishing putting the tree up! My sister and I decided that the tree looked best with just the lights and garland, so we didn't put any decorations on. My mom did her regular snowman/silver/blue/white theme and I realized how I much I miss it. We turned on National Lampoon's Vacation and ordered take out while we decorated our salt dough Christmas ornaments!
I had such a good time painting the ornaments and spending time with my mom and my sister. I even made a chalkboard one! As this year is the first year that Rob and I have a Christmas tree (and in our own place!) my mom and sister gave me the ornaments that they decorated.
When I got home, I promptly took our tree out of the closet and put it together. There are some lights on it, but oh boy was that ever frustrating to put together! I decided to make some peppermint hot chocolate (in my elf boot mug) and relax for a bit before bed.
Rob's not in to decorating for Christmas and he just finished a 24 hour shift, so he's sleeping right now. I think I'll just get him to fix the tree tomorrow as it's a bit lopsided. I am just so excited for Christmas! Tomorrow is going to involve me finishing off some Christmas gifts and cleaning the apartment.
Link me some pictures of how you decorated for Christmas!
