Hi! Since we took a long trip back east for Thanksgiving I'm a bit behind with my decorating/Xmas cards and I'm working like a bandit to get back on schedule!

This year I'm going to be a bit more minimalist with decorations - mostly because I had two faulty strands so I won't be decorating the outside as much. Usually I hang icicle lights on the house but I'm not going out to buy new lights this year. I just refuse! I can't believe my mother's strand of christmas lights has been going strong for 30 years while mine always go out every year?! So, outside, I've got a wreath and candles in the window and thats IT!

Oh, maybe I'll draw a little charlie brown Christmas chalk mural.

The tree is up and lit, but we haven't put the ornaments on because Ted's been working late and didn't want to miss that. We're probably going to do that later today. I'll try to get some pictures up a little later!

Back to Christmas Card sweatshop!

Well, I put lights up, but it kinda looks like I just threw them at the house and the bushes. Pretty lights can pull off bad placement. Hey, I had 10 minutes, and it was cold.

No tree yet. I'd like to get a new artificial tree, or better yet, try having a real one, but other purchases are winning out. :) So it's the old green-toilet-brush tree again. Whatever! The kids will be happy either way.

kara- that cracked me up!LOL

we have the outside decorated like normal but inside is nowhere near the norm. i skipped putting up the big tree in favor of a small potted one. just didn't want to fight the battle with mia.LOL because of this, i've had no motivation to crack open the interior decoration boxes. lloyd forced me to find the stockings and the calendar but beyond that- bah humbug.LOL

Hi ladies!


Happy December...


Our house is fully decked out for Christmas, and I even strung lights up on our front patio. Christmas cards and packages were mailed out this week and most of my shopping is done...I think all I have left are a few stocking stuffers.


We saw Santa and got pics last week, attended a local winterfest celebration, complete with a tree lighting and fireworks! This weekend we are going to do a drive by at a live nativity in a church parking lot nearby. Fun times...

Hi everyone! Sorry that I've been MIA lately. Life has been kinda crazy. We are all decorated though too. In fact, I put the tree up the week BEFORE thanksgiving! LOL I knew I'd be too busy to do it on black friday and the kids were anxious to help. I did all the outside
