the favorite

decorations this year.



I know, I know... but it's on the counter so much it technically could be a decoration. AND IT'S SO GOOD.


the tree. decorated for the 3rd and final time. long long long story -- just know it is completely shatterproof at this point.


close-up of the tree. it is quite lovely and quite harmless... all at the same time.
parental tip: never give your child these 2 options: 1) stop the football roughness while the tree is up or 2) the tree goes down -- because he/she will pick the tree going down. this was our compromise.


I love my sparkly joy letters. LOVE THEM.


and last but not least -- our "big balls" (as someone calls them... I will not name names... uh-hmmm...)

It's amazing that guys can always find a way to make jokes about balls around the holidays. I don't know if you saw our deck the balls picture on our blog??! Men are nerds!

I absolutely LOVE your first decoration. Emily and me had some with hot fudge while we were wrapping presents... it was SO good!

Chelsea said...

I mean"Emily and I", not "Emily and me."

I hope all is wonderful with the my favorite Creer family in South Dakota!

So cute! And I love your first decoration...almost as much as I love my mint M&Ms.

I just realized you did your ribbon on your tree different than just wrapped around it. HOW? my downstairs tree is ugly and needs help.

Peppermint ice cream is a staple at Christmas time. Have you had it with chocolate syrup on top? Yum!

I love peppermint ice cream too. So yummy with chocolate cake. But it's kind of weird that I don't like candy canes.
