Christmas 2012

Original title, eh? Things have finally cooled off in Atlanta, and the pink pig has made her appearance at Lenox Square. The hustle and bustle of holiday shows are behind me, and I am ready to drink in the magic of Christmas. Although, I have actually been in the Christmas spirit since September when I started building inventory for the season – but who’s counting?

Thanksgiving was pretty uneventful around here. For the second year in a row, I bought the entire meal from Fresh Market. I feel a tad guilty about this, but with the Indie Craft Experience the weekend before, who has time to go grocery shopping? Or plan a meal?

As our Thanksgiving holiday tradition goes, Big Red always comes out the day after.the weekend after. Sadly, I think this may be the last year for big red. I have never been into the artificial type, but my husband, who’s job is lights, swears by the “I’m already lit, just fold my branches” type. I’m much more of the “clog your vacuum with needles, but enjoy the smell” bunch. So this year, I almost had him in the car and ready to go over the river and through the woods, and I backed out at the last minute. So, Big Red, you made it in one more year!

Lylah was really digging the decorating part, in fact, she is still arranging and rearranging ornaments every morning. Sigh, so much for the perfectly decorated tree!

At first, she liked the tree bag more than the tree…

As you can see, Cassi is clearly ecstatic about what we find in the giant tupperware tubs.

I am excited to announce that I am teaming up with the folks over at What to Expect for an exciting give away! Because, hey, what’s Christmas without a gift? Stay tuned next week for all the details – but I can one thing – it’s gonna be really good.
