Cable Ties Are My Friends

I have alterations to make, clothes to sew and patterns to complete...but what did I choose to do instead over the weekend?

Deck my halls and put up the tree.

I have lived in my house for nearly 6 years and I have never put up any Christmas decorations until THIS year. Maybe it's because I have a 2-year-old who might now begin to appreciate the celebrating of Christmas and what that entails. Maybe it was because I not really looking forward to it this time and needed to jump start my enthusiasm.

(And it's a good thing we have a store-room-full of used decorations from when the husband used to do shopping mall decoration)

After spending the whole of Saturday and some of Sunday putting things up, I am finally getting that Christmas feeling, helped enormously by the weather (constant rain - not Christmas without thunderstorms in these parts!).

And Nikhita has been reverently watching the lights twinkle in the tree.

Next week, I'm even going to attempt making gingerbread cookies ;)

Merry Christmas to all!
