Currently, we're watching The Return of the King. Somehow, watching the LOTR trilogy has become a Christmas tradition for me.
Anyway, wanted you to see the result of our hard labor. With no money and no decorations from home, we decided to make some of our own decorations. Each of the ornaments you see hanging on our wall (over 50!) has a picture of some of our family and/or friends... and of course, Nala Bean. Since they're made out of construction paper, I'm not sure how long they'll last, but at least they add a little festivity to our home this year. :)
We borrowed puff paint from a friend (thanks, K!) in order to be able to personalize these Santa hats for Matt's kids. They'll wear these during the Christmas Program this weekend.
