I swore long ago, LONG AGO, that I would never have two things at my house during the holidays – colored lights on my tree (aside from my vintage accent globe lights) and lawn ornaments in my front yard.
Well, I happily have colored lights on my tree because, well, babies/kids like colored lights. Matthew loves his tree with colored lights – and I wouldn’t have it any other way (until next year when my old tree returns and his tree goes into his room in the kitchen).
And… I now have the CUTEST little lawn ornament! We went to Targ.et to get some lights for the yard and fell in love with this cute little polar bear. I am a sucker for polar bears – I appreciate their plight to survive and just think they’re awesome – so there was no way this guy wasn’t coming home with us! I got him, and the lights on the bushes, all setup last night and since then, Matthew must hug and kiss his bear every time we come home from somewhere.
Love, love, LOVE!
