my christmas tree

yay, boooful xmas twee.

I have been meaning to post this. Jovino designed the basic structure of this tree last year, and this year took it to the next level (+1!) with some great tweakes. we stuffed it with plushies and have been adding every xmas card that turns up in our mailbox for extra festiveness. I also added the photos of Allison I brought home from her memorial (which I am in the process of writing about in a separate post.) I'm so glad we put it up when we did as I have so little energy lately... but it is nice to have set up and it always lifts my spirits at least a little bit.

it's been quite the fucking week.

:) Yes, there is something tranquil about sitting there in the dark looking at the lights.

what a great tree.

For years I have been saying I'll put up a tree, get my own tree... something to make the holidays mine instead of something I go and experience at my mom's house.

This year was supposed to be the year I had a tree. I wanted to cut one down up north at the house like I did as a kid. I didn't care that I wasn't going to be up there until after xmas it would be up for NYE and then longer. Mom had started to set aside ornaments for my tree that I could take home with me after xmas at her house. Originally we were going to host xmas but A. figured we weren't house ready (he was right) and mom's is such a production (he was right) that we should go there.

Anyways, no tree, but I am making Christmas alligators after being fabulously inspired by chickenmoon http://chickenmoon.livejournal.com/156565.html (listen to the tale it's fabulous. I think at my birthday party on Saturday that I'll lug craft supplies over to my friend's place and get others to make alligators and snowflakes for me that I can decorate my house with :)
