I've been so busy with work that I don't think wifey and me will be decorating the place much like what we did a few years before. That year, we celebrated Christmas on a bigger scale and I even carved out a winter wonderland scene under the Christmas tree.
I don't think I'll even have the time to put up my Christmas tree this year or much of anything else for that matter. But then, I've always loved Christmas and it does come but once a year. So this year, wifey and me thought we'd go really minimalistic with the decor, nothing too fancy or too loud, something just so that we know it's Christmas time.
So out we went shopping for stuff, well, not really, we had other things to shop for yesterday but we came across this cute little item that would be our Christmas tree (really). The moment I saw it, I loved it and insisted that we buy it. It helped that wifey loved it too :D

So that is going to be our Christmas tree for this year :P Wifey was on the lookout for a crib set cos she said that the nativity scene is really the essence of what Christmas is all about and we went looking for one. The last crib set we had was one made by me and it's long crumbled apart, a feast for some pesky termites!
It just so happened that there was a couple being sold at one of the Lovely Lace outlets and it was on a 50% discount to boot! I couldn't resist an offer like that and we ended up with this little decent looking crib scene that comes complete with lights and music even. Unfortunately I can't show you the shot with the lights on cos I forgot to buy batteries for it but trust me, it does look kinda cool.
Our unofficial theme for Christmas this year is miniaturization :D Everything that we're going to decorate the house with this year will be from miniature Christmas trees, miniature reindeer's right up to miniature snowmen. It may not be much but at least the Christmas spirit will still be in the air.
With that said and done, while all of you are enjoying your public holiday here today, spare a thought for poor old me who has to head in to the office right after this post to attend to some installation for a client. There goes my plans to look for more Christmas stuff! Darn!
