1. Decorating for Christmas! (With Gale)

    December 4, 2013 ♥ Posted in: Journal by Kristina Horner

    I’m not sure how it happened exactly, but the Hypercube house mascot has, over the last year or so, become the world’s grumpiest cardboard cutout of Gale (from the Hunger Games). We dress him up for parties, hide him in each other’s bedrooms, and you can always rest assured that if you’re trying to relax in the living room, he will be silently creeping on you from the corner.

    Christmas Gale, however, really took it to the next level:



    Most people say “it’s not really Christmas until you put up the tree” or “until it snows” or “when my Starbucks comes in a red cup!” But for those of us who live here at Hypercube, it’s now officially Christmas because Gale will spend the remainder of the month silently judging us for having fun. Also, he hates his new hat.



    We got this great new tree from my parents this year and we had a ton of fun last night setting it up and hanging all our sentimental ornaments in the perfect order. Pictured above are just a few of the best: Rapunzel, and the ones us girls bought at the Nutcracker last winter. I also have a Pinkie Pie, a big sparkly pink unicorn and a glitter coated pickle [not pictured].

    I know it’s totally cliched and people are probably already sick of hearing about it, but the holidays just make me feel so happy. There are so many fun plans in the next few weeks, and I love giving presents to people, and decorating for holidays is just the best.

    I really can’t wait to watch Christmas movies snuggled on the couch in my footy pajamas. Especially now that Eia and I have the perfect hot cocoa mugs!


    What are you favorite Christmas ornaments? You know, the really special ones you most look forward to hanging on the tree each year? Let me know in the comments!
