Nate and I have finally finished our Christmas Marathon. This year we attended 6 festivities. Or I guess 7 festivities if you count our own Christmas Eve morning mini-party for the two of us (gifts + egg nog french toast + bacon = a party, right?). Fortunately, no two parties were on the same day. Unfortunately, no two parties were held in the same city back to back. So we did a lot of driving. We survived, but we’re glad that we both took vacation this week to recover and tackle some projects around the house.
Although we didn’t spend a lot of time at home to enjoy it, I finally got a “real” Christmas tree. 10 points for anyone who can correctly guess what the garland is made from.
Do you see that little bit of pink on the plant to the right?
Those are buds on my Christmas cactus. It had been living at my parents’ house for nearly 9 years until my mom made me take it earlier this year. I was afraid I had killed it months ago. Those buds are my little Christmas miracle.
I hope your Holiday(s) were wonderful!
