Christmas Scenes

Merry Christmas my friends! I hope you are all enjoying the season. Des Moines finally had a good dose of snow dropped on her. We’ve been spending free time pushing out our neighbors cars. Let’s hope they’ll return the favor when the time comes :)

I spent the weekend after my birthday sprucing up the apartment, trying to make it feel as cozy and Christmasy as I could handle. I’m not one for very traditional Christmas decorations, but we’re slowly acquiring a few things we love. This year for my birthday my parents gave me a few vintage ornaments; I think they are perfect for our tiny silver tree (purchased from Hobby Lobby last year). Also given to me for my birthday from McKenzie is my larger silver tree! She’s still tiny, and apart from two homemade cinnamon ornaments from my cousin Stuart and the lights she came with,¬†she’s bare, but I don’t mind it at all.
