Holiday Tree

Kids after the tree was done.After many many years of buying a real tree every year we kept procrastinating this year until the very last days. Maybe one of the reasons for this is abnormally warm December. They are predicting 69 degrees tomorrow — that’s late spring weather.

In the process.Anyhow, this year we decided to order an GKI Bethlehem Lighting artificial tree and overnight it from Amazon. It came out pretty nice looking. On the plus side there will be no needles all over the place, on the minus side — there is no that special smell.

Our Anna.It arrived today and we spent a couple of hours with kids decorating our tree, our living room — trying to get into the spirit of holidays. The next big question will be where do we store it after the season passes.

Getting Ready

Christmas TreeA little bit more then a week is left in the year 2007. We’re making ourselves a holiday. We put up Christmas lights all over our living room a week ago and put up all kinds of New Year stuff around our apartment.

Yesterday we went out and bought a Christmas Tree for $50. Since this is our first New Year in our new home we wanted to get a real one. As always it really adds to the spirit of holidays with its look and especially smell.

Today we had a nice evening with friends. Lenchik, Alex and Maruks came over. We ate a small dinner and sat and talked for hours. For tomorrow Alena is cooking a Christmas dinner. We should remember to take some pictures.

Happy Year

New Year in the HallwayThis year is almost over and New Year decorations are starting to appear all over the city. I think I’m ready to start getting into the holiday mood as well.

The year 2007 was a great year for us, as the one before. Many things happened, but probably the most important achievement of the year is the acquisition of our own apartment and the fact that our parents have finally took the same step. Yesterday they closed the deal on their own apartment in the same building as ours. A couple of weeks of minor fixes and we’re all hoping that they’ll be celebrating the New Year in their new home.

The lobby of our building is already full of decorations and it always fills me in with a kind of a warm feeling every time I come home. This is one of the main things that we need for complete happiness I think. The warms of the home. And luckily I have plenty of that.
