I decorated the house. That took quite a bit more work than I anticipated but the results were so beautiful. I love using fresh pine to decorate with. It just makes the house look so very Christmas-y. Not to mention the wonderful smell that pine gives off. There's just nothing like it.
Once you are all done with the 'body' of the wreath, you can add pinecones, red berries, ribbons and anything else you want on your wreath. I pushed the wire into the pinecone and attached it like this.
I know you're all probably thinking, "this still doesn't explain why you didn't do a single post in twelve days." Let me just say, on top of all this stuff I do have a job, part-time though it may be, and my whole family basically dedicated every spare evening before Christmas to practicing the music for the sung Mass we did for Church. :-) And might I just add that I think we sounded lovely.
God Bless. And remember, Christmas Day is the first day of the twelve days of Christmas. Christmas isn't over till January 6th, so leave up your decorations and tree till then, kay? January 6th's is the day we celebrate the Wisemen giving their gifts to the Infant King.
