I have NO idea how these pictures just came out arranged this way...totally fascinating. But, I won't complain. I just wanted to post a few pics of my humble little abode at Christmas time. Jere INSISTS that we have a winter wonderland, and frankly, with only 2ish rooms to decorate, it's not that hard. The fireplace pic really looks so much better when there is a fire going. We have a pic like that somewhere, but I have no idea where. My kitchen has a gingerbread theme, but I didn't include the pic of the cupboards with gingerbread on them. I love my three little mini trees, they're just perfect for the space we're in. I also collect snowmen and nativities. I sort of slowed down on the snowment, 'cause I've run out of anywhere to put anything new, but I still love them.
I know in another post I talked of my general bah humbugness towards this holiday. I really do love the decorations, the lights, the time of year. And as mentioned in the last post, I especially love the yearly wrap up Christmas letters. I simply don't like buying gifts with money you don't have, just for the sake of giving someone something. People just put themselves into more debt, and I think that is dumb. Plus, I don't ever "want' anything, or "need" anything. I mean, I NEED a lot of things, but mostly it's money, and noone seems to think that is very fun to give. So, I'd rather just decorate, give people something that is completely a necessity or totally home made and meaningful and call it a day. It kills Jere, it really does, but I can't help it, I am what I am, and that is too logical and too practical to make Christmas a FUN holiday. haha
Love and Joy
