just wasn't feeling it this year (2017 was very rough to start and to end
).. and so we didn't even put out the lights, nevermind set up the tree/Hanukkah bush this year.
so instead, I just set up the Electric Menorah (tho Hanukkah is over already), and set the presents around that.
sad, I know, but it matched me feelings on the year -- despite some real highlights (such as Coastermania!).
anyways, here's our "holiday display" this year. . taken before Nick added his gifts for me under it, so the qty has doubled now.
