With the coming of December, comes the holiday/Christmas season. This year will feel a bit unusual since we will be celebrating in the desert! Typically the wintry season is full of rain and puddles, a chill in the air, and a possibility of snow. This year, in Arizona, we are rejoicing in reasons to wear sweaters and relying on endless Christmas music to signify the season.
Another way we’re getting into the Christmas spirit is decorations! So I’ll give you a tour,
Tiny snowmen and wintry mason jars that are products of post-Thanksgiving craft day;
Penguin gels – high enough so kitty can’t attack them (with a cameo of the photographer and Alex playing computer games with friends);
And the wonderful tree! This is the first tree Alex and I have decorated together. I went for a more colorful theme, but Alex contributed a few gems like these happy squishy stars and moon;
Our tree is surrounded by beautifully wrapped gifts (if I do say so myself) that we will soon be giving away to friends and family, and every time I look at them I think about how happy and grateful I am to have so many people in my life to share the joy of the season with.
Here’s wishing you a great holiday season! And don’t worry, Alex and I will get our gray christmas eventually 🙂
