I couldn't imagine this Christmas morning without a few twinkly lights and such, so I had to do something to make the place look festive. I bought some baubles at the craft store, had Mike bring down the boxes of decorations from the attic, and set about arranging a little holiday cheer.
I hung the stockings,
(we also have a realistic sculpture of a human skull, now wearing a Santa hat. The photo was creepy, so I'm not posting it)
I'm feeling a lot less bah humbug now.
UPDATE: Mike insists I show my readers the creepy Santa skull since he had to wrangle kittens to get the photo. Also, he likes skulls. We have one (not real!) in our freezer. Long story. Anyway, click here to see my husband's contribution to the Christmas decorations.
