It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Since it's finally December, I don't feel like I crazy for having my house all decorated.  And yes...  we did buy our real Christams tree on Black Friday.  The Hubster and I were out and about and thought bringing home a Christmas tree along with out Black Friday deals sounded like an amazing idea.  Since I already had all the garlands up in the middle of November, the tree was the only thing that was missing. 

Last year we lived in an apartment, so getting a 3 foot tree and proping it on an end table was perfect, but this year, our house could definitely accomodate a large tree. Soooo...  we bought an 8 foot tree.  Haha, it definitely didn't seem like that big when we were standing in the tree lot, but once we lugged that bad boy into our living room, we realized that we just purchased a beast. 

And then...  I realized I had to put lights in the whole thing...  That took me two evenings to accomplish.  Trying to get that whole thing lit in just one night was way to intense for me.  Not to mention the fact that we actually ran out of lights, since we didn't anticipate the Goliath that is our Christmas tree...  But the tree has been lit, and the ornaments hung.

Here are a few other accents in our home to accompany our silver, green, and purple themed tree.

So now that our home is all decorated, and most of the presents have been bought and wrapped, it is time to turn my attention back to the baking. 

Since the toffee was not as much as a success as I had anticipated, I am switching to butterscotch.  Hopefully, that will be tonight... but stay tuned to see how Butterscotch Chocolate Oatmeal cookies turn out.
