D.R. LOVES Christmas--like, silly-clapping-school-boy loves Christmas. It's pretty cute. I certainly have my ideas of how decorations should go up (organization and order, maybe?), but I have learned over 5 years of co-hab that Christmas is D.R.'s domain. My Martha Stewart-y visions have been replaced by glitter garland, fake cotton "icicles", and random Santa figurines (Harley Santa!) placed on any empty flat surface. I cannot control it; I can only hope that our little apartment can contain the merriment.
A few things that make our Christmas village complete.
|Denver Broncos candy canes.|
Our tree is jam-packed with ornaments. Some branches have two or three, but we can't stop ourselves from buying more. We probably should create some sort of ornament database to prevent repeat purchases (there are a lot of cake ornaments), but the end product is always a twinkly catalog of our childhoods, travels and memories. These are our Christmas stories.
|Lord Vader and the Holiday Armadillo always make an appearance.|
|Holiday window gels.|
|Not just Santa's village, giant cross-country skiing Santa's village. Santa smash!|
Hope you are all enjoying the season. If you're not, come on over and D.R. will make you enjoy it.
