I meant to post these before the New Year, but I kept getting sidetracked. Mostly because I was getting ready for our New Year's Eve party.
Our mantle is a very nice, unblemished piece of wood. I couldn't find any of those metal stocking hangers that I actually liked, and didn't have room in the budget to get them anyway. I figured this was a decent enough substitute.
I purchased one of these sparkly trees for Amanda. Hers was in a box. The next day I received one from Taylor. I was quite glad, since I thought it was cute.
Joley was incredibly excited about her stocking.
Gratuitous Christmas tree shots. Readers following along closely will notice that this is a real tree, which is inherently superior to a soulless fake tree.
This was one of the two ornaments I got for myself from Presence, which I put in the pile of gifts and completely forgot about until about a week before Christmas, long after the tree had been decorated.
Present from Leeann. =)
This was an ornament I got from Presence two years ago. Apparently no one else has cobalt blue as their Christmas colors, because they went on clearance and I was able to purchase more of them. Unfortunately, that means they don't order cobalt blue ornaments anymore.
She either gives completely silly faces or angry-looking deadpans. There is no in between.
The traditional Christmas Cougar face.
Hope your holidays were as lovely as mine were, and happy New Year.
