O Christmas Tree

i know, i know. i haven't updated recently. i've been busy with christmas stuff and taking funny pictures of the kids. here's emmy as she fell asleep one night.
anyway, some people had expressed an interest in seeing my tree, so here it is.
this year i added some new decorations. i thought that i would try out some glass ornaments. at least one is broken already. they are martha stewart brand, but i paid about 50¢ a box at a yard sale this summer, so it's no big deal. also i found some glittery plastic snowflakes at the dollar store. i got two boxes. i got three beaded garlands from kohl's. they were on sale, so each strand was about $3 and i used my kohl's gift card i'd gotten in the mail, so they were free! yay! we love free stuff!
this year i decided that we needed a new star. the other one weighed too much to be on the top of the tree so i got one that doesn't light up. i like it. very pretty.
okay, so here's all the gifts that are under the tree this year.
i think this is the most we've ever had under our tree at home. maybe i'll snap a picture of my in-laws tree. there's sure to be a lot of presents under that tree.

Christmas, Christmas Time is Near.

well, things have been just going along for us. i still need to get all my Christmas presents together. at least i've given my sibling-whose-name-was-assigned-to-me's gift. she liked it. it was not much, but i'm not in a place to give expensive gifts. anyway, i still need to decide what to give derek's siblings. i don't know why i feel like i need to overanalyze everything.
