Clean the halls, then deck them.

Today our apartment went from looking like this:

To looking like this:
The desk is still rather chaotic. Wanna come help me out, Ange?

PLUS! I made dinner. And I wrote this blog post.

And we decorated the tree. (This tree was given to us by my brother, John, and his wife the first year that we were married. When he gave us the tree we had already bought a real tree, but I figured it might come in handy to have an artificial one for some years. This was clever thinking on my part as we used this tree in 2006 when we spent our holiday in Texas, and therefore ought not to have a live tree acting as a fire hazard in our apartment. And this year, because we are moving on New Year's Eve, and we don't want the hassle of purchasing a live tree only to throw it away prematurely.)

And yes, the tree is a little crooked. We're working on it.

The tree looks beautiful. You must have worked like crazy today.

The funny thing is we gave you that tree after we felt we had 'outgrown' it after 9 years. We just put it up one year and thought, "It seems a little small." You made it look beautiful again good work!

What a professional tree decorating job you've done! And props on the clean apartment - that's what I should have spent my day doing...
