we’re a little delayed on christmas around the butler house. i blame it on my travel. yeah, it’s my job. right?! most likely it’s my aversion to doing anything christmasy before thanksgiving. no shopping, no decorating, and absolutely no holiday music. i like christmas to be special and i don’t want to burn out half way through october. yep, i’m ornery.
i wasn’t feeling the christmas spirit. i tried writing all our christmas cards and that just made my hand hurt. i needed pine. i needed poinsettias. i needed lights.
i’ve been bugging alex to get a tree for the last week. the weather pushed back our plans a little but last night we purchased our tree and decorated for the holidays. whole foods had 7 – 8 ” frasher firs for $40! i think they read my post about their super high prices and discounted everything for the holidays.
here’s alex bringing in the tree. what a strong man!
and after a little skil saw action and some swearing here’s the tree with lights and ornaments. i have 5 clemson ornaments. alex has one georgia tech ornament. 🙂
recognize that tree topper? what else am i supposed to do with the 14 aisle runners from the wedding?
the dining room table, mantel, and our front door
alex’s mom gave me these placemants and i built my decorations around them
it feels great to bring the holidays indoors!
