it’s beginning to look a lot like christmas

17 Dec

Around the house:

We have some gel cling thingies on the window and the other morning when I woke up the sun was projecting them onto the curtain. Looked kinda spiffy.

o christmas tree
Can you spot the random upside down misplaced ornament? And assorted bare spots? Thanks, baby girl! 🙂 I’m trying not to be OCD about it like I normally would be – just ask my little sister, who I used to make cry because I would move every single ornament she put on the tree when we were kids because “you didn’t put it in the right spot!!”

mini me tree
This was our only tree for quite a few years of apartment living. Now it’s our bonus tree.

everyone's procrastinating on cards this year apparently
For our own cards, I decided to do photo cards this year since there are a bunch of family who don’t stalk the baby on my flickr page and who I thought might like to see the baby/us. Anyway, I used the CVS website to design a card and had them printed at a local store. The website was a tad finicky, but it was really very easy, fast, inexpensive, and the cards look great, so I wanted to give them a little plug. Got them all out in the mail today. 🙂

Parties and Santa Claus:

What’s that song? You’d better not shout, you’d better not cry? Guess someone’s getting coal this year. ;P I kid, I kid.


oliver who
I knitted a stuffed owl for my friend’s son. Glad I remembered to get a picture before I gave it to him! It turned out so well I might make something for my own kid. The pattern is Oliver Who from Little Knitted Creatures by Amy Gaines.
