The grinch's heart that grew 10 sizes

Confession: I used to be the grinch who stole Christmas.

It's true, when we got married I told Andrew he could forget about any decorations and I only very grudgingly agreed to let him get a tree.

I guess I've gradually softened up, though. Our second Christmas together I made some ornaments, and little by little by decorations have evolved into handmade everything.

On a side note, Andrew and I have a running disagreement about lights on Christmas trees. I think colored lights on trees are hideous/tacky and detract from the ornaments. Andrew thinks trees with only white lights are completely bland and boring. Fortunately for me, it looks like my aesthetics have won (at least for now).

What do you think?

Also, neither of us are red people so most of our decorations are pink and teal (each of our favorite colors).

White lights are the best way to go--that way colorful ornaments really shine.

Your decorations are awesome, specifically the stockings! I want one ;)

Happy Christmas!
