The results...

I haven't bought Christmas decorations since we were first married ten years ago. Our parents gave us a lot, which was much appreciated since we had to spend our money on other things, like food and rent. Since then we've had children. Our children and the typically glass ornaments/decorations of the Yuletide season have not been a good combination. We're down to just a few things. The bright side is that I've had to purchase new things when I'm finally figuring out what I like. So here's a little sampling of our holiday cheer...Is anything more welcoming than a candle in the window? (Even if it is an electric one!) I like that the picture is out of focus. Makes it look more candle-like. And I like the condensation on the window, it's purdee.
This is our Jesse Tree. It was my college dorm room Christmas tree. I love that little thing....hung by the chimney with care.

We still haven't decorated our tree. It's sitting in our living room, has been for four days. We put the lights on last night, but it's been so hectic around our house, we haven't been able to add the baubles. When the kids and I are available, Dug is working. When Dug and I are both ready, it's time to put the kids to bed. *heavy sigh* Oh well, maybe tomorrow...
