We had family gatherings from Thursday through Saturday last week, then church and an errand on Sunday. Which left me a few hours last weekend to start my Christmas decorating. I'm not one of those people who puts up a little tree in an hour and smiles and sits down with book and a drink. Noooo, I'm one of those people with boxes and boxes of decorations for every room in the house.
My BIG living room tree takes 4 to 5 hours to decorate. I'm about half way done with it, I've gotten to the point of being ready for ornaments. And of course a lot of those ornaments are in individual boxes to keep them nice so most of the time left is just getting them out of the boxes!
After 33 years of Christmas trees we have a LOT of ornaments. But even my sweetie, SuperDave, loves the house being decorating for Christmas. He got all those boxes out of my attic and has been helping as much as he can so that in the couple of hours I have after work in the evening I can s-l-o-w-l-y get order restored to our home. (I wish some elves would come along and it would magically be done when I get home tonight) haha
We did get our priorities right this year though. Our first Christmas decorations to go up was Snoopy.
I picked up Snoopy a few years ago for cheap on our SwapMeet at work (like craigslist sort of, but just for our employees). He's become a favorite very quickly - not just for my family - but with our neighbors. If we don't get him out right away, people start asking for him. Kinda like Frosty in the Christmas with the Kranks, I could SO go for a cruise instead of having all the Christmas foofaraw one year. But NOT this year!
So Snoopy is out in the yard counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds - 26 days to go - because this photo was taken yesterday!
Ho, Ho, Ho,
