We've finally got our tree up and decorated for Christmas! Love how festive the house looks after all the bubble wrap and wadded up newspaper is put back in the totes and pushed out of the way.
My kids are already wondering about the presents. Our tradition is for me to wrap a present a day for each one of them the last week or several days before Christmas. So far the only presents under the tree are from Aunts and Uncles so they are getting a bit anxious. Mom? You did buy presents for us right? hehe Even though the youngest is 13 yrs. now, some things never change.
I was so glad to rediscover the holiday runner I made last year. It's not the prettiest one ever, but I love having it on my dinner table to help spread the holiday cheer throughout the house.
I also pulled out my one and only Christmas quilt to drape over a chair. So fun to see it again. I really need to get motivated and start making a few more like Lori. Such an inspiration!
As you can see, we mostly decorate with snowmans. That was my husbands wish/request from when we first got married and I happen to think they're cute. So far we're not totally overrun with them, but my girls are starting to get in the spirit of buying them so it may happen yet!
It's so crazy that we haven't had any snow at all here in our area this year. It's not unusual to have snow by the end of October and we always have several inches of it by Thanksgiving weekend at least.
I bet this guy in the corner doesn't mind at all as he is always the guardian of our front door during the holidays. He actually gets quite a bit of abuse with all the boots/outdoor shoes getting kicked off right in his face during the worst weather. Now I'd better get back back to getting something accomplished besides admiring our decorations. Lots to do between now and December 24th!
