our pathetic christmas decor.

No, I’m not done decorating the house. No, I don’t think I’ll be able to finish pulling out all the decor this year. …but I will share a picture of our not-quite-done Christmas tree. As some of you know, we change the theme of our tree every year. Last year, it was a bronze and gold tree. This year, we decided to go with the fairly traditional route – reds and greens. You can’t go wrong there, right?! …and yes, we’ve got BOXES upon BOXES of Christmas decor, which are all color-coordinated. Anyway, here’s the unfinished tree:

…and before I could get to the mantle, check out what G did!

She set up her Christmas Lego sets all over the mantle! I, of course, had to add the berry garland for filler, but can you believe it?! LOL! I’m not complaining, though, because it ended up looking really cute. It’s playful and fun, and it makes me smile everything I come home from work.

As for the Christmas tree over at Our Paper Place, I went with mostly greens. Here’s a picture I took with my phone of the tree when we were in the process of setting up the store before Thanksgiving:

Umm, what’s that white ball of fur under the tree?! Well, it’s Maui. She apparently was waiting for Santa to bring her some toys and treats, hehe. She’s not waiting there anymore, though. She now begs Grandma and Grandpa for treats when I’m at work. …and yes, Maui and Hilo get tons of that. SPOILED – I think so!

How’s your holiday decorating going?! Hopefully, it’s much better than my pathetic attempt to decorate this year, lol!

  19. Beautiful tree! finish or not! I LOVE the lego village! Too cute!

  20. You call that pathetic? Please have a look at my bare tree. Still, that’s an improvement on the Christmas bike from a few years ago, or the “no tree Christmas” of last year. PLUS, you color coordinate. I can never convince Mike that we need to do that — LOL. LOVE Gloria’s legos — I’m such a sucker for them. I’m still putting off packing away my lego turkey from last month. πŸ™‚

  21. Oh yes, nothing can go wrong with red and green (and golden) Christmas decor. The tree is really beautiful. Very cheerful It does not look unfinished at all, honestly. I mean, what isn’t finished there? By the way, Maui fits under the other tree so well, I though it was a stuffed animal at first.

  22. OMG! YOur trees are gorgeous! Hope you have a good week sweet friend!

  23. not finished yet. My kids did most of the decorating which was TOTALLY fine with me! I love that they enjoy it.

  24. Cute! And I’m loving the Lego scene…. Byn would LOVE that! πŸ™‚

    Have a great week!

    Love you unfinshed tree (looks finished to me)!! Love the look of yiur shop in your former post, wish I could visit!!

  26. Hi Sarah, it was so nice meeting you @ Hambly tonight! I forgot to mention that I totally love Maui’s name. Maui is our favorite place; we were married there almost 10 years ago.

    The tree looks great. Totally love the Legos. My 7 year old is a Lego fan.
