Theme Schmeme

November 30, 2010

That whole theme idea? Yeah, that’s totally out the window! After trips to the Dollar Store, Walgreens, Home Depot and Target – and the ensuing orgies of Christmas purchases – we ended up with A LOT of new decorations and they are all a mish-mash of decor!

Last night we got the tree and the mantle done, but we are still a ways off from achieving the desired level of Griswold festivity! Our front windows still need some serious festooning.

Now that I look at it more, perhaps our theme is “Holly Jolly“!

And, surprisingly, our neurotic dog is unfazed by all the lights. They are nowhere near as distracting as the shadows cast by his ears or the reflections off his dog tags 😀

(he also does not look too amused with this game of keep-away)




  1. HA! Our dog has been doing laps around the tree chasing a train we had there. Needless to say we moved the train. I think the decorating looks lovely.

    So glad to be meeting you! :))

    • I am glad to know other dogs are lovable freaks!
