we're ready for christmas

our tree with the new shiny blue lights

i finished all my shopping and put the packages in the mail yesterday (100 bucks, thank you very much). our tree is up and most of the christmas cards have been mailed. soon we'll be setting sail to colder climates to celebrate with family. woot woot!

when we were home in nj for thanksgiving my (just turned) 8 year old niece made us a beautiful picture of a fireplace with stockings hung with care. so we added that to our cozy, christmas living room scene.

enjoying a hot toddy
baldman warming his hands by the fire
mmm, doesn't that just show the warmth of the holiday?
