Christmas Decorating & Holiday Lights

Well, my lil' fake Christmas tree is up! I've actually had it up since just after Thanksgiving, but finally have a camera to take pictures of it now. :) Ain't it cute and festive?

Yep, presents already under the tree! There's a lot more under there now... I think I'm FINALLY done with my Christmas shopping! WOOHOO!

This little penguin guy is my most favorite ornament on my tree. It's really heavy, and totally made out of glass. I don't know why, but it cracks me up every time. I think it's the googly eyes, and the fact that he's wearing a life preserver. Love it!

This one is my 2nd favorite! My mom got it for me one year. I love Looney Tunes cartoons, and there's nothing more hilarious than Bugs Bunny in drag.

My set-up! It's quaint, but it's home.

Earlier this week, John (the dude I've been dating since this post) and I went to see the Christmas Lights at the Botanic Gardens in Denver. I had never been, and it was super pretty. Not sure if it was worth $9.50 per person pretty, but it was a nice evening. After that John watched "Elf" from my couch while I finished writing my Christmas cards and wrapped gifts. He's such a nice fella. ;)

It was really dark, so difficult to get a clear picture of the lights with such a slow shutter speed. I decided to run with it though, and "paint" with the light! (aka wiggling my camera around to make streaky-lights). It was fun.

This is John. He's a goofball, but I like him that way. :)

That's the moon up there! Pretty neato!

That's me! I do love Christmas lights.... so pretty!

He's so cute...
... me too!
I think this photo is my favorite from the night - I love how simple it is, and I love the colors.

And what would a visit to the Botanic Gardens be without some flowers?

Everyone together... "HI JOHN!".

Looks like you guys had a lovely time looking at Christmas lights (awesome photos by the way).

And of course I love the penguin ornament as well, did you see our wreath hanger? yep, penguins.

Haha! You're so cute, Kendra! :D
I'm glad you like the photos - I've been using my dad's reeeeally nice digital camera. I definitely can't break this one, or I'll be in BIG trouble!

Oooo - I'm gonna check out your penguins right now! Love them. :)
