Decorating the Office


My co-workers and I decided that we were going to decorate our little room in the office. We went with a "Winter Wonderland" theme. I made tons of paper snowflakes. We hung them from the ceiling along with the ball ornaments in different shades of blue and also silver ones. I think it came out pretty well. I took a picture from my cell phone but since I don't have a snazzy IPhone the quality is pretty bad. I think you can still get the idea of what it looks like though.





I love making the paper snowflakes because they bring back so many childhood memories of Christmas and the snow. All through out grade school, each year we would make the paper snowflakes and I got pretty good at making them. I grew up in an area where when you woke up in the morning you immediately looked out the window to see if it had snowed while you were asleep. If it did you ran and turned on the radio and waited with your breath held to hear your schools name on the list of schools that had canceled class.

For me its not really Christmas unless it is cold and snowy. This is something that I struggle with because here in California it can be in the 80's and sunny on Christmas day. Hopefully, next year David and I will be able to spend it in Indiana with my parents and I can give him a tour of Chicago.
When I hear the word Christmas, I think about walking down the twinkling Michigan Ave(also called the Magnificent Mile) in Chicago along with all the other shoppers with their big shopping bags while passing carolers on the sidewalk. You stop to look at all the window displays decorated for Christmas and you can see your breath in the air. Everyone is bundled up warm with their cute gloves and scarfs while sipping their hot coffee or hot chocolate. Hmmmm, what great memories!

So since you have heard about some of my favorite memories, what is one of your favorite memories of the holidays? Blog about it or leave a comment.

Your office came out great! I've lived in California my whole life & it still doesn't feel like Christmas when it's over 80 :/ My favorite memory would have to be last year. My brother Richard is SO practical. If he doesn't "need" it he doesn't want it. Silly boy. So the lastest Zelda came out for Game Cube & (as always) we bought it. I have no idea why he didn't think we would (since we've bought every single one for the past few years) but he got teary eyed, jumped up & hugged us to tight. I'm getting teary eyed thinking of it! Ok i'm taking over your comment section.

Sorry :/

*so tight. He hugged us soooooo tight. Not too tight since he's so teeny tiny it would be hard to squeeze us too hard. ;)
