xmas decorations

Last year for xmas we went all out. My mom and I made 8 containers full of pine branches, red twig dogwoods, and ornaments, We made three pine wreaths, and two balls covered in evergreen which were hung on the lamp posts. I even made wreaths out of ice with citrus and berries for the birds. This year frankly, I am tired and don't have that energy. As evident from the lack of posts recently.

So Thorny guy and I decided to cut back especially since xmas is not at our house this year. We were not even going to get a tree!

Well Thorny Guy changed that plan and bought a cheap white pine tree and decked it out. He also bought poinsettias on Black Friday. This made me put up the nativity set, and a huge grapevine wreath with ornaments above the garage. But that is it, I am done decking the halls. Although I have to admit it does seem more like the holiday season now.
