Preparing for Christmas
I was pretty bored Thanksgiving weekend and decided it was a good time to get the Christmas boxes out and decorate. My husband was at work and I thought it would be fun if he came home to a cheery, Christmas house. :) We don't have too many Christmas decorations but I think every time I step foot into Michael's or CVS lately, I buy a new Santa or Snowman or Rudolph decoration. It is an illness that I am not seeking out treatment for because I LOVE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS. Our mantle: The dining room table: How cute are these snowmen? I love snowmen. The mini tree I got at Michael's last year. LOVE it. Kitty was all about the Santa hat. When I come home from work, the hat is in a different place every time. She puts it in her mouth and carries it around the house....then chews and bites it. Ok now what? And finally, the tree. I think my husband hyponotized me and brainwashed me into getting a fake tree. FAKE. I'm a real tree girl. We used to go out to tree farms and my dad would saw down the tree we picked out. I'm okay with going to Home Depot or the random lot on the corner to get the tree but NEVER a fake one. Until this year. Seriously, I was brainwashed. Hmmm, this looks delicious. And then we took about 15 tripod and timer assisted, pictures to use for our Christmas card. That was funny. But I'm not going to share the final result until Christmas Day. When do you start decorating for Christmas? Do you have the same Christmas Decoration Illness? Has your pet eaten your tree yet? Fake or real tree? Will my husband be mad because I'm pretty sure he asked me not to post that picture of him carrying the tree in the house.
