Holiday Cheer

In the interest of posting something a little more upbeat, I bring you our holiday decorating, such as it is. . . . .


Isn't our tree little? It is artificial; we bought it 50% off at the local hardware store just before Christmas last year. Neither of us wants anything bigger--there just isn't space--and we don't want to hassle with a real tree and its pine needle shedding.

Note the tree skirt. It is satin with hand-sequining and was made by MM's now-deceased paternal grandmother.


A close-up of one of my favorite ornaments. Two guesses on where/when we bought this surfing Santa. . . .


Here's another ornament I bought on clearance at Hallmark after Christmas last year. I like it 'cause it has a little wedding photo of us in it. (The ornaments visible to the right are a couple of the Wizard of Oz-themed ones MM has had since childhood. His mom gave us all his ornaments after we got married; there are too many to fit on this tree!)

Cute! I wish we had collected/saved ornaments from our childhood. I should look for Cars-themed ones for Row. ;)

I love seeing Christmas ornaments - I love the surfing santa and the wedding pic of the two of you :) I'll have to go to Hallmark after Christmas for good deals - I bought two ornaments last weekend for my parents, and they can be pricey. I want to get an ornament so I can put mine and Rob's pic in it :)
