So why is it that I have the irresistable urge to………
…….run down to the basement, bring out those red and green storage boxes, and start spreading Christmas cheer all through the house!
I know, I know…..it is not even Thanksgiving, but I get this way every year. Once Halloween comes and goes I am so ready to toss the pumpkins and gourds and starting bringing out the Christmas wreaths and holly.
Typically we decorate the day after Thanksgiving, last year we did it the week before because of the huge Birthday celebration we had for Sarah at our home.
This year we have a very busy November…….I am flying into Memphis, TN on business in less than two weeks only to return the day before Sarah’s 2nd Birthday! Then we will be headed to Cape Cod to spend the Thanksgiving Holiday with Pat’s side of the family! I am not sure when I am going to have a chance to decorate….and I hate waiting until December.
Is it too early to start decorating the house???
I am not sure I can contain myself much longer….I am trying to hold out, but I might cave this weekend…..the only thing we have going on is the “Holiday Bazaar” which is hosted by Nick’s school……and it is over the top…it looks like Santa’s workshop. If I make it through that and don’t run right home to decorate, it will be a miracle!
When do you start decorating for Christmas?
Now, If I could only get this enthusiastic about Christmas shopping…..
That will have to be a post topic for another day!
Just because I cannot do a post without a picture….or two
We could not get Sarah to cooperate and were trying to give her something to hold to keep her seated in her chair. We never used this picture, but I loved the expression on her face. I cannot believe how little she looks. It is amazing how much they change in a year.
