Images that make me happy

It's starting to get a little stressful around here. "Around here" meaning anywhere that I happen to be, I guess. School, the roads, home, pretty much everywhere is starting to get that "I am being pulled in all directions and something has to give" feeling. So, tonight, after almost LOSING it when the cat clawed Bastian's ear and actually caused a blood-splatter pattern all over the carpet, sheets, curtains, and mattress of the bedroom, I took 3 minutes to do something I love. I took pictures of things around me that make me happy. Sounds weird, but I have found that taking and posting my simple pictures makes me very complacent. So, here are some sights of the holidays around our home...


The mantel, ready for 6. I wish they all pointed the same direction, but that's OK.


Our little tree. Hey, it's no 7.5 Douglas Fir, but it works. I actually have had it since I was a teenager and enjoy decorating it just as much as a big tree. Plus, with this cat, this is our only chance.


The first gift. This little box reminds me of "the first gift" in Polar Express. Check out what's inside...


Baby O's first hat, knitting by Nana. It is so soft and I am fascinated by how the colors change as it goes to the top...these knitting things confuse and amaze me.


Our first ornament, sent by Kristy. Hee hee!
