Don’t ask me why I let the pictures on my walls bug me when I was running around frantically trying to get stuff done before the school bell rang at noon yesterday signaling two-weeks of school freedom.

But I did. They just weren’t very Christmas-y.

So when I stopped at Home Depot to grab something else I needed I also snagged a bunch of branches they had cut off the bottom of real Christmas trees (they just put them out there for people like me to pick up).

I got home and wired them together with a bow and voila, more festive-ness, easy as pie.
Now if I can spruce up our family motto to look a little more festive…
But first I must help the girls finish their Saturday jobs, get to Max’s volleyball tournament and deliver about ten thousand more treats. Please someone remind me NOT to do the baking thing again next year.

But hey, at least my walls are Christmas-y. 😉
