I managed to get some art created though I have not been able to get a decent picture or scan of it due to the relectiveness of it.
I also managed to finally get the Christmas tree up! I guess we decided to be backwards this year normally I get the tree up first and THEN the outside decorations. Here's some pictures of two of the trees I put up this year...I use to put up more trees but I don't have the time or space for more trees, so I have one in our front living room and a small one in our family room:
This tree I call the toy tree its decorated with ornaments from the kids and hubby's Peanuts ornaments he's a big time Peanuts fan!
