Going Vertical

When you have a one year old Christmas decorating takes on a whole new challenge. Our poor tree only has ornaments on the top 1/3rd. Everything must be safe and out of reach. Well this year I went vertical. I hung large ornaments from door frames and light fixtures. I also created a modern tree sculpture out of an old vase and put it on our tv stand out of reach from little hands. Hang stockings by those plastic temporary M3 hooks that wont pull off and wont ruin your mantle. Don't be afraid to get creative and think out of the box!

Don't Forget About Sparky!

Our pets are part of the family and even they get a little something for Christmas. See Gatsby and Leila here enjoying the holidays. Ok maybe they didn't enjoy the costumes ( but I did). I always make homemade dog treats for them and put the extras in the freezer for a nice little surprise in February.
