This was our second attempt at decorating for Christmas this year. After a long and crazy few weeks, we finally had the time to get our tree up. Thanks to Craigslist we now have the perfect tree! $15 for a 7.5 foot artificial Canadian Pine tree!
Here I go putting up lights on the lower level. This was a lot of work.
Can you believe how tall this tree is?! I am 6ft tall myself, so you can imagine how I feel standing beside this seven and half foot tree in an apartment.
After many trial and errors, we finally came up with this marvelous looking tree!
Midway through decorating, we realized we didn’t have everything we needed. So of course that called for a trip to Walmart to get some more Christmas decorations. What can I say, we love this time of year!
We also picked up these four candles for one dollar each. Take that, $2.25 Glade candles!
Look what Tracy did with a few candles and the snowman salt and pepper shakers.
Here is a snowman cookie jar that we won at my father’s Christmas party. Make a wish! Let’s just say this cookie jar is the only gift from the party that we can post on our G-rated blog. Good ole White Elephant gag gifts! 😉
As you can see we love to play darts! Merry Christmas! There is nothing better than a fresh espresso shot in a penguin glass. Or cat glass. Or snowman glass.
For under $15 you can make a beautiful wreath just like this. Thanks Tracy for your wonderful creativity.
Here our some of the ornaments that we have been collecting since we’ve been together. Notice a trend?
Yummy! When Tracy told me about Soy Eggnog I was so excited. I recommend this over diary eggnog. (Only 90 calories per. serving!!)
Look at this fine looking cat! My buddy! (Nutmeg)
And yes, we are THAT couple! Hellooooo Griswalds #2! 🙂
Question of the day: Do you go all out decorating for Christmas? If you have a blog with pictures of your decorations, send us a link! We’d love to see how other people celebrate!
