Chestnuts roasting on an open fire...

Ok, we didn't roast chestnuts, but we did have some fish chowder that Sean made, cheap wine, and some hot chocolate while we decorated our apartment for Christmas. We watched The Polar Express while we ate dinner. (Which was one of my very favorite books growing up.) I'm so glad we happened upon it last night... it really got us in the Christmas mood! After dinner, I made hot chocolate while Sean put on the lights, and we popped in Love Actually and started putting ornaments on the tree!

Love Actually + $6 Walgreens wine = perfect xmas atmosphere
Seany putting up the lights
Mmmmm, hot chocolate with real whipped cream

The final flourish!
I even had some presents wrapped to put under the tree!
Awkward Family Photos? ;)
Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season! What are some of your favorite tree decorating traditions?


  1. Haha, I recognize those stockings... AMY!!!! :) I have a bunch of blank ones left from that party so I made them for all of the animals (pics coming soon!) Also, I was watching Love Actually with Becky on Sat. night when you texted...thus the reason i didn't come out :)

  2. Aileen, I like how your stocking has 'Amy' written on it. ;-D
