{christmastime at the lanes}

can you believe it's almost Christmas?!?!
i've barely had a chance to buy/make any gifts yet,
so unfortunately i am going to be joining the masses of people
doing last-minute Christmas shopping this weekend.
eeeeek! do any of you have lots of gift-finding left to do?

i have really been loving all of the pretty lights and decorations in our humble
little abode. i never want to take them down.

oh, Christmas tree..
there is nothing like the smell of a real Christmas tree.
i don't think i could ever go fake.

i also found the stockings there from make-out goods.

Adorable house, and everything looks so festive! What fun finds at the fair too!

Well, I grew up with an artificial tree that looked real, and I loved it dearly dearly...but I do agree that I would love to have the scent of a real tree! I had fun going with Chris and his family to pick out a real tree for their house in Middlebury over THanksgiving weekend.

Merry Christmas, Meg!
