with all the ugly in the world lately, i'm glad our home can bring me a little happiness and christmas joy. tonight, we made cookies together & my arm is still cramped from stirring (i can't wait to get my mixer!) above are candy canes i bought last year on the 26th. they're super cheap after christmas and will keep for the next year. i make peppermint bark with them and it's a fun and easy way to impress your future in laws, if i do say so myself. that evergreen is from thanksgiving and i have only changed the water once. jon says "well duh, babe. it's called EVERgreen" .... whatever. we sent out our christmas cards and i fear that our future cards will never live up to 2012's greatness aaaand the last few photos were taken of houses around town that pull out all of the stops. i can't help how creepy i am for coming to a slow roll and snapping photos. i just love all of the lights, don't you?!
