The lights on one of those trees totally didn’t work after I got them put out. I’m just going to ignore it and not plug the other in. #winning
And the lights on half the garland didn’t work after I got it out. So I just didn’t plug it in either. #winning #lookslikeIwouldhavecheckedthatbeforeIhungit
Anyway, on to the inside…
Mom made this garland for me 7 years ago when we lived at our old house. We saw one at the Pottery that I loved but it was ridiculously expensive so we bought the materials and she made one for less than 25% of the cost of the one at the Pottery. I pack it back up carefully in a storage bin every year and she’s still going strong! Sometimes the balls fall off but I just pop them back on.
My favorite ornaments are the pictures of my girls. That’s Avery on the right and McKenna on the left and in the center. They grow up so fast!
And that’s the tour! We are all set for Christmas (aside from the shopping, cooking, cleaning, wrapping and celebrating)! Oh dear. I better go.
