It's that magical time of year again that makes me extra cheerful, Christmas. Eric (boyfriend), Cathy (sister) and Zach, ("bro-in-law") kicked off our fun old fashion family Christmas by heading out into the country in the old front-wheel drive sleigh to embrace the frosty majesty of the winter landscape and select that most important of Christmas symbols. Well, sorta...I actually stole that epic line from Christmas Vacation - a favorite holiday film and tradition to watch as I decorate my tree! As much as I love to hunt AND cut down my Christmas tree, this year we decided to keep it simple all while still supporting a local business on Small Business Saturday. The gang and I headed to SRB's Christmas tree lot in Waunakee and found two perfect trees, one for our home and one for Cathy and Zach's. Bagged them up and the only cutting we had to do was a small trim before putting them in their stands. After all the "hard work" we indulge in some yummy pizza at Doughboy's, Waunakee, and watched some Wisconsin Volleyball. Go Bucky!
Tree decorating was complete by Sunday evening as we allowed the branches to settle for a day. Eric was a great help with the lights (I'm crazy about how I put my lights on my tree) and the animals, minus Jack who was taking a cat nap, made great supervisors. Ziggy is obsessed with staring at the tree and his favorite ornament is the lowest hanging snowflake. Tila loves to rest under the tree and Jack really has zero interest and most likely thinks were nuts for bringing the outdoors indoors. Keeping my fingers crossed that the cats keep their distant through Christmas! The tree's decor is a mixture of snowflakes, icicles, glitter, vintage and vintage insprired ornaments. I love the look of white, gold and silver together. Very pleased with how it all came together and love the ambiance it casts throughout our living room. Happy deckin' the halls!
