After hauling our tree home on Sunday and my hubby finally putting it in the stand, we realized that the tree was a little too tall to fit our star. He wanted to shorten it on the top, but I just couldn’t get myself to do it. I think the shape is perfect the way it is. Lilly is so proud of picking the tree all by herself this year too and I didn’t want to mutilate it.
I love it just the way it is. Oh wait there is one more problem…the hubby and I got into an argument over it being straight or not. And it is totally leaning towards one side, at least I think so. I hope it won’t fall. Is it visible in the photos?
Can actually believe that I had to run to the store 3 times to get new lights because they failed once I had them up on the tree? What is it with me and Christmas lights?

I love my little Christmas fur ball under the tree. Every year he loves it under there. It makes me so sad because I think that this might be my little loves last Christmas. His kidneys aren’t doing too good. He isn’t suffering yet but at 16 years old there is just not much to expect anymore. He’s had such bad health 🙁 the little fella and now this. Breaks my heart!
Every year I move the desk next to the sofa instead of my white side table. The side table has a new home for December in our bedroom.
I wish I could take better pictures in the evening. I love the glow of all the lights. It just looks so much better than during the day.
I added a small christmas tree to the corner of the dining room, which you can see on the first picture of this post. And I added the silver Christmas balls to the window that you can see below. I forgot to take more photos.
I wish you all a beautiful first advent this weekend. Growing up it was always a big deal for me in Germany. Doesn’t seem to be in the U.S. but my parents always had a wreath with 4 candles on the coffee table. The first Sunday of December we’d light the first candle, the second Sunday the next, the third the next, and the fourth was lit on Christmas. Which for me has always been the 24th not the 25th. In Europe, it’s always been about celebrating baby Jesus’ birthday not about Santa Claus, but that is changing now too. I try to combine the two for our children, but I’ll tell you about it next time.
I just might get an advent wreath for our table.
Talk to you on Monday und Guten Tag.
