im posting backwards because i want to share my christmas stuff.

as an atheist i dont get to into the spiritual side of xmas, it's just a fun holiday to celebrate. in my family we usually all get together and pretend like we get along and try to make up traditions to salvage, which we will inevitably forget to follow through with the next year. this christmas my mom didnt want to decorate, which is wholly depressing, so i took over. since i was in charge, i decided to scrap the usual and go with a cowboy themed celebration. here's what i came up with.

my dog, hank, in full cowboy attire in front of the cactus tree. I made it by cutting foamboard and spraypainting it. then i made snow with adhesive dots on a string and hung them around the tree. i made a custom stocking for my brother ben, who loves futurama.

the table.

the placecards were made with rope alphabet stickers. i used paper bags to make placemats. the napkins were cowboy bandannas. i took mini cowboy hats for dolls, tied ribbons around them, then glued them to a 1inch ring cut from paper towel rolls to make napkin holders.

it was a fun christmas, and for the first time in years, no one cried! haha
