Happy Christmas!!!!!

Even though the house isn't habitable it was important to me to still put a tree up.  I mean, I have a three year old who's just starting to get into the whole Santa thing and I can't very well start out by having him come through the garage to deliver presents.  Not that they would even fit into the mouse hole we're living in.  So we managed to clear/clean an are of the living room to display some holiday cheer.

I haven't been feeling especially in the spirit of Christmas this year but I think putting a crooked tree in the house allowed me a little sense of normalcy.

Next year it's going to be a Christmas EXPLOSION in the house to make up for this year.  

Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas


  1. merry Christmas! That is a pretty fabulous tree.

  2. I so understand how you are feeling! Last christmas we were trying to cook dinner in the worst oven ever while 5 smoke alarms went off in the rental house we were living in. Not good. This year was christmas bliss in our own home! You will be there next year and all the hard work and struggle of this year will make it even sweeter. Wishing you a good new year!

  3. Emmalina,

    I know you're right. Still tough to live in the moment though. We were able to cook our first meal in the kitchen though which was amazing to say the least. Hope you had a great Christmas!

  4. Tiff--I'd contact you privately but don't see an email listed--I'm so sorry your 2011 had such sucky things going on. I really hope that 2012 is better, with more hair. (Although your moneypit is starting to look quite lovely.) Hugs, Lisa
