here is the little decorating I did to the front stoop. It was not nearly enough to suit Miles, who is desperate for us to have lights galore. Maybe next year we will get to the lights… baby steps, baby steps…
the only thing I bought was the big wide cheap red velvet ribbon. and actually I bought it for a clients house and used the leftovers for me. I love that ribbon, it is the best looking ribbon for doing the outside of a house at Christmas – the wider the better!
it is just tinsel garland wrapped around a foam wreath, with some paper letters glued to it.
Still battling the cold. I am moving at about half speed, which means most people will be getting New Years cards this year, and some people may be getting gifts on December 27 instead of the 25, but we do what we can.
I am just glad to be with my family this Christmas and to have people in my life who understand I am not even close to perfect and who love me anyway, late gifts, messy house and all.
