Decorating for Christmas

_MG_6803

Ever since I was a little girl, the day after Thanksgiving is reserved for decorating and getting ready for Christmas. This includes a thorough cleaning, decorating, writing Christmas cards, etc. This year was no exception. The apartment is now 100% ready for the holidays. All it needs are gifts wrapped and waiting near the tree — our tiny 3 foot tee doesn’t have much space for gifts to go underneath it.

Christmas cards: Papyrus 1, 2, 3
