Well, the tree is up! And that necessitated a room rearrangement. The Husband actually did this – rearranging furniture is one of his favorite things to do. Seriously.
Please note the Maggie-Pippa dynamic in the above photograph.
By arranging the room this way, he essentially made it five feet wider – it’s really nice to sit in the patterned chairs and look at the tree and fireplace now (we moved the DIY art over the chairs). The room seems both larger and cozier, although that could just be a nice side effect of having a gor-ge-ous Christmas tree and roaring fireplace.
I made a huge batch of sweet potato casserole. Expect to see lots of this over the next few days.
Time to wrap a few gifts!
