Gettin' Festive

Over here at the K household, we decided it was time to get festive and that means putting up a Christmas tree!!!

Friday night we headed over to the Knights of Columbus hall, where they sell trees, wreaths, and other decorations. We did the rounds and inspected all the trees. We finally settled on this gem, who isn't too tall but is super full and round. I love it even better than last year's tree!

We don't have much table space, so we've got a teeny tiny Nativity Set. Notice that baby Jesus isn't in the manger yet. We're not supposed to put him in until Christmas morning, since that's when we celebrate His birth.

This standing Santa was a raffle prize that my dad won a few years ago. It used to dance, but it broke and it won't dance anymore. He didn't want it anymore and Pi took pity on the crippled Santa, so she brought it home. It makes a good decoration, as long as you don't touch it. LOL

Last but not least...what would a New York Christmas tree be without a Mets bell? This ornament makes my hubby twitch, heehee.

Thanks for the ornament Dad!

In other news, I've been flying through finished objects! In the biggest news, I finished my mom's scrapghan (yay!) but haven't gotten pics yet. The hats for my mom and sister are also done, just waiting for pics too. I finished up some baby things too for a baby shower tomorrow and will be spending a good chunk of today baking cupcakes for the shower. Wish me luck!

I love it! I love full, round trees. Ours is tall and skinny, and fake, but it works in our current condo, where we don't have a ton of room.

Oh, and P.S., I gave you a shout out on my blog today!

Love the tree!!!!

Wait, but if Baby Jesus isn't technically there yet, shouldn't the Wisemen wait to make an appearance until January?

I have fond memories of my Old Man doing a kind of puppet theater with our nativity scene as a kid, complete with lifelike Mary-childbirth grunting noises.

Yeah....I'm going to hell!

That is a pretty tree, but how did you get it home without a car? I hope you didn't have to carry it home!

You're more ambitious than me. I have a bunch of candy-cane striped rope lights and lollipop lights for outdoors, but my husband and I never got around to putting them up. He's been too tired and busy from work, and I had been too depressed lately to get excited about Christmas. Now I'm looking at the box, which is sitting in our living room, feeling guilty, LOL!
