* Are you in the Christmas spirit this year?  Yes, big time

* Do you decorate the outside of your house?  Yes, but it’s just a strand of lights across the gutter, some plastic candy canes lining my walk, and a Christmas flag.   The lights are LEDs that alternate red to green.   I also have red candles in my windows.

* How are you with the progress of your Christmas shopping? Not too bad.  I have 4 more people to get gifts for but I know what I am getting - just need to go get them.  Hopefully I will be done by the weekend

* When do you normally put up your Christmas tree? Right after Thanksgiving.

* When does it normally come down? Sometime between Christmas and New Year's.

* How many Christmas parties do you have this year, including family Not counting Christmas Eve and Christmas Day we have were invited to 4 parties.  One was last Saturday that we cancelled out on because of my FIL being in the hospital.  We have two this week (Thursday & Friday) and one the Saturday before Christmas.  My office party is this Friday and John is coming - John's office party is Friday the 21st but it is at noon and I probably won't go to that one.  The one this Thursday is one of his clients and is at a very pretty place and the one a week from Saturday is a family party at John's cousin's house.  We are having a big get together on Christmas Eve and it looks like we are up to around 24 people right now - how did I ever let that happen?????

* Are you in the Christmas spirit this year? I was but then I lost it with all the health stuff happening with my Dad and FIL.  Hope to get some of it back.  I keep trying.  Need to sit and watch a good Christmas movie and have a good cry - that should help - LOL.

* Do you decorate the outside of your house? Well we can not put out lights (condo association rule) but I do have a real wreath on our front door, a kissing ball hanging out there and an urn filled with greens etc. on the stoop. It really looks quite pretty even if I do say so myself.

* How are you with the progress of your Christmas shopping?

pretty good.  I have to get my big Santa gift yet, MIL, my grandma, and one shirt for Brooks

* When do you normally put up your Christmas tree?

Thanksgiving weekend

* When does it normally come down?

Depends on my mood.  Most likely the weekend after Christmas.  I like the house clean and decluttered for the New Year.

* How many Christmas parties do you have this year, including family?

DH's work was last weekend, my work is a luncheon on the 21st, DH new job is on Christmas Eve after work (they only work a 1/2 day), K Christmas on the 22nd, MIL on 23rd, Mom and Dad 24th, Grandma 25th and then most likely going out to visit MIL for supper.

* Are you in the Christmas spirit this year?

Not really.  I've gone through all the motions (decorating, shopping, etc) but it doesn't feel Christmasy.  The weather man said there is a possibility that there could be snow for Christmas!!!

* Do you decorate the outside of your house?

Nope, but I want to buy lights after Christmas (on sale) for next year.

* How are you with the progress of your Christmas shopping? ** Pretty good - done with everything except helping the boys pick out Erick's gifts and stocking stuff.

* When do you normally put up your Christmas tree? *** Now that we have our prelit artificial, we put it up Thanksgiving weekend.

* When does it normally come down? *** Before we go back to school - we could keep it up all 12 days this year, as we don't go back until Jan. 7. That is later than usual.

* How many Christmas parties do you have this year, including family?*** Both Erick and I have our work parties, and then family stuff on the actual day.

* Are you in the Christmas spirit this year? *** mostly. I was in a real funk over this last weekend, but before that I was really in the holiday mood. Feeling better now. It can be hard to stay merry with all the concert stress.

* Do you decorate the outside of your house?*** We have in the past, but since we put up new gutters with the leaf filters we can't mount our house lights. We have some net lights for the bushes, but haven't gotten them out this year. It has been raining a lot!
