Christmas! Candy! Decorating!

A few weeks ago, I did my Christmas decorating....I don't have that many things yet, so I had fun deciding exactly where to place each item, in order to get the most enjoyment out of it!

I love decorating for Christmas! I love starting as early as possible in December, sometimes even in November! Christmas music, Christmas food, Christmas decorations.....I love it all!

My first time eating pocky....I quite enjoyed it! :)

I had the most delightful idea for decorating this year! We're not allowed to have a tree in our apartment, so I was trying to think of more creative (inexpensive) ways to's what I came up with! :) I bought two boxes of glass gold and silver balls at Value Village, for a few dollars, a box of push pins at the dollar store, used thread I already had, and voila! Beautiful balls dangling from the ceiling, catching the light, bringing so much more delight to my living room. :)

Chloe was my partner in crime to decorate the gingerbread house! Actually it was her idea. :) And we had sooooooo much fun doing it!

It seems like I'm always in a rush when I go to do a bit of blogging....lately I've been extremely insanely busy, with the things that are going on in our life...and blogging has taken a back seat to everything else. But I wanted to share all these pictures with you all, even though I didn't take most of them (thanks Chloe! :)

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, and take time to really enjoy life.....
