So, the tree is up. I nearly amputated my finger while hacking off branches on our Charlie Brown-ish tree, but I managed to get it to fit in the stand and stay standing. It's the first time I've ever had a tree on a table but it's necessary so Estella can't reach it. Though I did catch her hanging on the edge of the table, leaning back, staring up at the tree. She seems to be fairly mesmerized by the sparkle of it all. She was leaning back giving the tree and lights the same loving glances she normally reserves for her reflection in the mirror.
We went to Bazaar Bizarre last Sunday on our birthday. It was a crafterific time! We waited in line for a while in the freezing cold but luckily we were in the first group to get in. However, by the time we left, there was a line around the block. It made us feel better about leaving at the crack of dawn to get there so early. There were so many great vendors. It was nice to see all of them in person since I have been looking at some of their blogs and sites for quite a while. Walter got some great tshirts and I bought some fabric from ReproDepot.
We also got a great sketch from Gamma Ray Bots for Estella's room. She has been really into her little That's Not My Robot book, so I thought she may enjoy some robot decor for her room. I guess she likes robots...that's our girl!
