We are slowly but surely continuing to unpack the new house. Unpacking is not that much fun. So we took a break and busted out the Christmas decorations instead. Here's a little glimpse of Christmas at the Schween's this year. With all the money there is to be spent on things for a new house (who knew door knobs cost so much!?!), we didn't want to spend much extra money on new decorations this December. We used what we had from our last house, and supplemented with a few new purchases, as cheaply as possible (think, split peas from the bulk section at the grocery store...). Next year? Outside lights!!! I had to let that go this year with everything we have going on, but next year...watch out.
|Finally got our stockings hung! And we can't believe that next Christmas there will be 6 hanging from our mantle.|
|I wasn't kidding - you thought I was. Split peas are filling up my candle holders. I already had the candles and the variety of glass holders...add split peas and you've got the cheapest green décor you've ever seen.|
|Aaaand my one, token "Glassy Baby." LOVE. Why do they have to be so cute!? I probably won't own any more at that price tag (in my mature state of motherhood, I would rather buy a few lattes...or 50 lattes, or whatever the cost equivalent would be)|
