Saturday Jeremy and I helped hang up the greens at church. Well, Jeremy helped hang them, I stayed on the ground and arranged poinsettias and "fluffed" the greens. I'm not sure I did a very good job - I kept telling them they had the wrong person for the job. My decorating skills are lacking. Anyways, this helped to motivate us to pull out our own decorations and get a tree. Slowly but surely we're building up an ornament collection.
It's a little scraggly in places, but hey, we didn't want to pay $15 more for a tree that wasn't! We bought it from a tree lot not far from our house. It was a local place, I don't even think it was affiliated with any business, just a tree lot in the middle of a parking lot. They were really nice and helpful - the guy even tied it to the car for us - something that didn't happen last year when we bought the tree at Lowe's.
In other Christmas news I've been in a dessert making frenzy. Between the Advent potluck at church Wednesday, our work party Friday afternoon, and No Room at the Inn at church on Friday night it's been a busy week. The hardest part, though, is not eating all the cookies!
