It’s December! It’s December! And my house is already all decked out for the holidays.
We bought a Christmas tree Thanksgiving weekend and started decorating as soon as the tree was up. But now, we’re thinking we’ll have to redecorate because the lights are off centered. It might be that our tree is missing a few branches here and there so it’s not very symmetrical. But that’s okay. Because we love our perfectly imperfect tree anyway.
As part of an ornament exchange, you know, like a cookie exchange, but with ornaments? I decided to make my own ornaments to send off. I bought empty glass ornaments and filled one with green reindeer moss, white glitter, diamond dust, and mini pinecones. It turned out so well that I want to make one for my tree. Maybe more than one? In multiple colors? Or maybe filled with sea shells? I see ideas for stocking stuffers.
What do you think?
Sometimes I just love the simple things in life.
Oh, and the night before Thanksgiving, my sisters and I went to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Our family is Harry Potter obsessed!
It’s such a good movie. What better way to start the holidays than with a movie and giant bag of buttery popcorn, right? Have you seen the movie yet? Or will you?
