the new year has been off to a great start at the davis house! we are a bunch of sick dogs. yay. (the yay was sarcastic.) i’m not sure how it goes at your house, but at our house, when one gets sick, it’s inevitable that the entire crew comes down with the same thing within a few days. so while we’ve been trying to keep people separated, things extra clean and the house in general completely lysol-ed, all four of us were officially sick by saturday (…probably because we can’t help ourselves from giving lots of hugs and kisses.)
but it’s not all bad. because in our attempt to deep clean the place this week, we took down the christmas decorations and found one of my camera’s sim cards that had somehow been misplaced last month and impossible to find. not sure how considering we live in an itty bitty new york city apartment that is the size of most west coast garages. so christmas gets to live on a bit longer on the blog now that the sim card has been found! and even better, the last of the photos from our trip to italy were found on said sim card, too! so… just when you thought you were finally done with me posting on and on about italy and christmas, i’ve got a whole lotta venice to share with you this week. ;)
the photos here are from that day after thanksgiving when we walked down the street and picked out our christmas trees from the guy on the corner. it might not be as magical as going to a big fancy tree farm someplace in the mountains, but it’s festive in its own new york city way. right in front of the starbucks, naturally. i blogged a little about it here, but this year we got two christmas trees. a big one for the front room and a little one for the nursery. we also only broke 5 glass ball ornaments this year (4 the night we decorated the tree) and i call that a major success with an almost 2 year old. see you next year, christmas!
