Every year I say I'm not making the wreaths for our house and guess what I did last night.
I only do the front door wreath all live and for the windows I use a fake wreath but add the magnolia and holly to save time.
Gathering my greenery was a little harder this year. I get all of my magnolia and holly from our neighbors house (with the landlord's permission), but this year the house is occupied. So Tuesday under the veil of the night sky and lets not forget rain I snuck across the street and clipped a few limbs of magnolia. Even though it is the 2nd day of December I felt behind on the decorating dept.
We put up our real tree this year, unlike last year when we only had our smores tree out. I was not so much in the spirit, but this year I'm all in. I love the pine smell and the big bulb lights we use. I've been trying to hold off on my nightly hot chocolates but I don't know how much longer I can hold out. Do calories count at Christmas? Hmm not sure but I bet they count after Christmas when I can't fit into my clothes. Tree lights and hot chocolate are made for each other.
