And then the Pea plants. Also has a few flowers, so they should be ready soon (or so Jay says).
Here are the herbs:
We also have Lemon Thyme, Chamomile, Oregano and Rosemary, but I'm not posting pictures of those because wow, my computer is taking forever to upload these things. So we'll save the front and side gardens for another post. So next time: Roses, Dahlias, Snapdragons, Winking Columbine and MORE!

This is obviously another of Jay's:
The cross is one that I made:
So this next one was one of the first ornaments we bought together as part of this tradition, back when we lived in our townhouse. It had a little friend, another red bird to perch on a branch nearby. The cats killed it. Really. All we ever found of it were some red feathers near the tree. Very sad.
A few for Baby's 1st Christmas:
And for getting married:
This last one is another one that I made:
This year I made a yellow star. Johnathan got two special ones this year because we just couldn't decide. One is a monkey and the other is music notes (with bells in them). I got a butterfly ornament and Jay chose a reindeer. I think it makes the tree look pretty cool and different. There are a lot more, but maybe that is a post for another day. It is officially Christmas Eve and my 25th birthday. How incredibly depressing. Well here's a nice pic of Johnathan to cheer us old folks up! I hope everyone has a very Safe and Happy Holidays.

How about this one?
Maybe this one is more my size!
So it was pretty cold and getting dark, but we finally found a really nice tree!!
And, we have started our Dickens Village collection! Three new pieces (I only have pics of two) are now on display on the bookshelf.
And we already have some presents under the tree, which the cats obviously love playing with...We're not quite sure what Johnathan thinks of the tree yet, but he seems to like looking at the ornaments. Hope everyone is having a great holiday season!

I also made a hat for JW. It was supposed to be for him at least. I had a pattern but it was for a baby, and of course he is NOT a baby anymore. He's a little boy. So I tried to make a few adjustments to the pattern to make the hat bigger, and I did. But maybe a bit too big. So I'm going to wash it in some hot water and see if I can get it to shrink. Otherwise it might just have to wait for next year.
I was going to do some more craft stuff last night but after Jay got home I pretty much crashed and had no energy whatsoever to work on anything. Maybe Sunday when the boys are in Indiana. Pictures coming soon!
