Well, here is a sneak peek into Christmas Chez Teira.
A couple weeks ago I dragged a friend out to the bushes to cut some boughs to make arts and crafts.
We jumped on the four wheeler with bungie cords and a hatchet and left in the brisk and bright sun. While in the woods, a freak snow squall set in and we were covered in big hail like snowflakes. I was on a mission, so we cut stayed out, braving the prickly ash trees and sharp juniper bushes until we had enough boughs to make my arts and crafts display.
I totally blew my Christmas Light budget this year at Canadian Tire, but don't care. The house looks super cute with balanced amount of lights on each side. I even ventured up the TV tower (which I use for my actual Television watching pleasure) and zip tied my snowflake as high as I would go. I bought the snowflake about 5 years ago and this was the first year to actually put it up. Although, admittedly it should be higher, I'm a chicken and couldn't go higher on the tower.
Every year I try and get the dogs to pose for the Christmas pics. Not working well with the puppy this year. She is not the best listener.
My girlfriend brought her little one up to help me decorate the tree this year. That was my favourite Christmas moment so far this year. She wanted to help put decorations all over the tree, so for the higher areas, she would scootch her little butt over to me backwards, raise her arms and wait for me to pick her up. At one point I had her held up as high as I could reach and she couldn't open the cord to hang the ball so it felt like I held her above my head for 10 minutes and I just looked at her mom and asked "what is she…a 100 pounds".
More to come…Christmas is still a ways away
