We're sticking to our tradition of getting additional ornaments each year for the tree with a heavy emphasis on affordable and non-breakable ones.This year, Fairy Godma got us some really good Ikea finds in the forms of fabric birds and bright red mushrooms. I know, everyone has been giving me grief about why am I hanging mushrooms on a Christmas tree but don't you think the spots of red make the tree look extra cheerful and festive? I also found red and gold glitter ribbon at Daiso and Hubs was roped in (pun intended) to garland the tree with that.
The pine cones were either
When Hubs and I first got together, he wanted to get me a Christmas present but I told him since neither of us celebrates Christmas, it's a meaningless sign of mass commercialism for us. I guess I've to eat my words now :) As Bubs is bigger, all that I want is to see the sense of joy and wonder on his face so this year, we relented and got him a present.
Come Christmas morning, Bubs gobbled down his breakfast cereal before hurriedly asking if he could open his presents. There were a few from family and friends and he felt each one, shook it a few times before ripping the wrapping off. Even cynical ol' me couldn't help but smile at how delighted he was. Merry Christmas to all and to all, a good night :)
