First, our tree. We leave on our trip in just 4 days, and didn't want to make a lot of fuss about unpacking (and subsequently repacking) a lot of STUFF. As a compromise, I promised my husband that if we got the tree out of the attic and put it up, I wouldn't get all the other ornaments and decorations out. Now that's it's up, I really like the simplicity of it. It's got sparkly silver garland, silver bows, and the big silver star on top (nevermind that it's a little crooked...) My cat loves to sit underneath it, but of course as soon as I pulled out my camera she ran away. I should also mention that there were gifts under the tree, but as we had 'Christmas' last weekend they've all been opened.
I did decorate the dining room table. Meagan gave me this cute table cloth for my birthday, and once the tree was up I was craving a little more festive atmosphere in my house. It was set really nicely and I had a pretty centerpiece and everything. Unfortunately, all you get to see is the aftermath of dinner with the family this weekend. See, I haven't even cleaned up all the dishes yet.
Finally, this is the last bit of decoration in my house. (See, I told you there wasn't much.) I picked up this bucket at Michaels the day after Thanksgiving because I thought it was just super cute. While I was trying to think of what to put in it, it just sort of got taken over by all the hat-knitting going on on the couch right next to it. Oh well, it works :)
