Lo and behold: Christmas trees!! These now sit on my mantle. I made ballerinas, snowflakes, and trees and hung them from the ceiling at work. Its kind of magical.
Just makin' some pies for Thanksgiving!
I also had a little helper: Ethan loves eating frozen veggies now - its funny.
More random holiday decor: only cost me a dollar. We took a hike for FHE and got some branches. Then, I stopped at the dollar store and wha-la! Grabbed some gold ornaments for $1.
The rest is just tissue paper and ribbon I had laying around.
I really love it.
