After gorging ourselves on soup, cookies, frosting, M&Ms and about a liter of Diet Pepsi each, George and I got ready to make swags! Everything was set up in the garage so we all had to bundle up a bit before heading out.
And then we witnessed a Christmas miracle:
Julia let George touch her!!!
Mom and Tim had everything set up in the garage. Ribbon for bows:
And various greens, holly and pine cones:
So we got started with the greens and mom started making bows.
My mom is an expert bow-maker. And every time she makes bows she talks about how Uncle Daniel and her made bows for hours one year for our Christmas tree. She’s been the official bow-maker ever since!
If you remember, last year I made this gum drop wreath:
And I still love it! But I decided to go with a green swag this year. And I pretty much sucked at putting that together.
So I had mom make a giant bow to try to hide my swag fail.
And like last year, Hart was waaaay too into making his swag:
And way too proud of his creation. Whatever.
I’m just happy we managed to get our swag home and hang it on our door!
Maybe I just need to trim it? I don’t know, I’m so bad at anything plant-related…it’s really pathetic. And this swag is our only decoration this year!! Wow, I didn’t think it was possible for us to get even lazier.
