Well, we finally made a decision as to what to do about decorating for Christmas: buy all new stuff! Don't worry, we didn't go all out; we just bought the basics. On Thursday after work, Kit and I went to Fred Meyer and bought:
- a 24" pre-lit Christmas tree (pot included) | $7
- a pack of Blazers candy cane-shaped ornaments | $6ish
- three stockings (I had already bought a little one at Target for the baby so Kit, Coco and I got new stockings) | $4.50
So less than $20 later (and a run through the Elf soundtrack), we're officially decorated! We decided not to put the tree in the front window like we usually do with our bigger tree because a little tree doesn't hide presents as well from bad guys. (Little do the bad guys know, we have a little budget so it wouldn't be worth breaking in to steal our presents.) Instead, we set up in our family room on a side table. Here are the results.
