Fast forward a year and we have gone Christmas bonkers here in Buffalo!
It took Gregory about five minutes after Thanksgiving to put up icicle lights outside and we were scouting for trees the first available weekend. It makes this "temporary" home feel cozy and loved... although we don't know if we will spend one or several holiday seasons here.
The spirit is strong, but our available space is not. With three sets of little hands to grab at ornaments, family heirlooms and very breakable lights... most of our decorating has been limited to the living room. Please enjoy the tour...
|Hand-knit stockings! I am very lucky that my Aunt Janice has continued the tradition.|
|Little incense man and my extreme-couponed free pointsetta.|
|These hecklers have to be kept in a safe place!|
|How about this sassy bird? Thanks Nano!|
|A ceramic tree I've had since I was little. Totally unsafe though... the bulb inside is unreasonably hot.|
(And off, because Elliot promptly removed many of the ornaments. He is worse than a cat!)
|Jackson is embracing his weirdness.|
