Merry Making

We're getting excited for the season around here, especially with a new blanket of snow on the ground. Here are a few new scenes from our house.

I love putting up our old-timey 1960s aluminum pom pom tree, called "The Sparkler" -- and this year our tot got to help, too. Until this year he's been more of an un-decorator than a decorator, but this year was great. Even though lots of the ornaments all got clustered right together on the same branch, it turned out great.

And our little village is charmingly hodge-podge and not quite right, with masses of cords hanging down. But we adore it anyway.

Isaac is entranced by the aluminum tree, too. Especially when I put on the color wheel light.

Your mantle looks gorgous, btw. Love the skates!

Your tree is always so stylish! I love the tree skirt! :-D Ronan put a lot of ornaments bunched on one tree branch too, LOL! Happy Holidays you guys!
