Christmas Preparations

16 Dec

The halls are decked:


The dining table is nearly complete:

A carpet remnant has been purchased for the hallway:

The dining chairs have been reupholstered:

And a Christmas table centerpiece has been assembled:

But all of the preparations for Christmas feel very insignificant today. This year more than ever, I’m looking forward to celebrating Christmas with the people I love the most. I hope you’re all able to enjoy the same!

    Wow, you really crossed a whole lot off of your to-do list. I can’t wait to see the hallway runner!

    Looks like you’ve been nice and busy! Your place looks great! And I’m right with you – I’m so excited to celebrate Christmas with family and loved ones. Just a few more days and we’re on our way! I just wish I could have my WHOLE entire family together – that’s what you get for marrying a guy who literally grew up on the opposite side of the country from you. The husband and I just need to move to middle ground and have everyone come visit us. Maybe someplace like Kansas. haha.
