last holiday decorating post, i swear.

you may think that i'm really late in posting this.  "yeah, yeah, christmas was like 2 weeks ago and we're all ready to cut the cord and move on to 'clean slate: 2012.'"  well, people, i can tell you that my house still looks exactly this way, so just consider that you're seeing these in real time.


our porch lights from the outside.  i felt really tech-savvy when i figured out how to cover our house number in microsoft paint.  so if you were planning on stalking us, consider your plans foiled.



the 'before' shot of our entry way.  yes.  it normally does look this sparse.  and recently i took down the baby gate, so there is even less 'furniture' in there.



another boring entryway shot.  you can see my millions of paint samples on the walls and also my three-year-old son wearing a baby girl hat.


OH GLORIOUSNESS THAT IS CHRISTMAS DECOR! AND ALSO A DECISION HAS BEEN REACHED ON THE PAINT COLOR!


well, hello big boy.  *creepy wink at inanimate object.*  (atticus comes down the stairs every morning and says, 'good morning green guy!')


this year, i spent seventy cents on dedicated wrapping items.  the brown contractor paper has been around for many christmases now, the jute string was leftover from a failed high school attempt at macrame.  so the doilies were my only expense, and i bought them from the baking section at hobby lobby and used a 40% off coupon. 

unless you were a gift recipient who expected extravagant wrappings, in which case, i commissioned blind italian nuns to crochet those doilies by hand from chinese silk thread.  and also i did not use a coupon.
