It's Christmas eve and I am enjoying the internet from the livingroom. Josh's sister is here for a visit and she is out doing some pre-holiday celebrating so I get to use her laptop while she is out.
It's been fun not having to sit in the lonely computer room.

I just asked Josh if we are going to do some Christmas crackers. I need to be wearing a paper crown while surfing the net.

(I have to say typing on a laptop is not that fun.. I love how I am typing away and then all of a sudden the cursor is 3 rows up typing who knows where.)

In short I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas. I hope you are cozy in your living room- getting ready to watch a fun Christmas movie.

Christmas Countdown!

Finally last night I broke out the holiday decorations. No real tree for us... with wall to wall carpet in our new place bringing in a sappy tree just didn't seem the smartest thing to do.

I have my sturdy wire tree that sits on the table where I am able to hang all my favorite ornaments. This year was a bit stressful because I had more favorites than I had room on the tree. I had to get a little creative and it worked out great. I have a small winter village under the tree with some minature foil wrapped gifts.

I fill my cake plate dome with bulbs and have that displayed on the counter- my favorite Martha Stewart holiday trick.

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas."

(sorry I have not photos to post- hopefully later today I can clean up the camera disk and get some photos on here)

It's been a week and I think we are pretty much settled.

We hung some things on the wall yesterday. I have such a hard time committing to something on the wall. It's only a tiny hole in the wall but still once it's up I wonder will I like the place I chose, will it be straight, will it be centered? Josh tends to hang things to high. He is taller so it probably seems fine to him. He had hung some stuff while I was at work on Friday. I got home and within a hour I had to lower them. Just a bit but still I had to lower them. He has the computer room for all his things- Most stuff is about 8 inches from the ceiling. I have to crank my neck to have a look. Too High!

I am really excited about a print I had framed. I will take photos later and post. We need some large pieces because our place is big and there are lots of white walls.

I put up a humming bird feeder and so far one little guy has come to visit. He was there this morning but I was not able to get a good look. He has a dark back and head with a pink throat. I love having them come right up to the deck. I am thinking I might do a regular bird feeder as well. Get the sunflower seeds that have been shelled so there is not mess. I just hope it's to far for the squirrels to jump on the deck and hog all the treats.

Well I have to get ready for my work Holiday Brunch. We are heading to the Benson for some good food and Mimosas!
