yea, yea you've got it--Christmas.
and yes, I know Thanksgiving isn't here yet.
but it's on Thursday, and I'm one of those overly Christmas cheery people who decorate before.
I just like to have my tree up on Thanksgiving, it makes the house feel warmer.
So.... today we put Christmas music on Pandora and the tree went up!
Once we learned that they are ornaments ["twee balls"] and not balls, the decorating was on a roll. Thanking God my pre-mommy self bought shatter proof ornaments!
Our artificial tree was a lot easier to decorate. I prefer getting a real tree, but when I was pregnant with Adeline my belly broke out in a rash from being picked by pine needles while decorating.
I wish I had the time to make some homemade ornaments for the tree this year. This is our 4th Christmas in the house, and my Christmas tree looks the same after 4 years. I'm wanting to do something a little different, but I really don't have the time to make anything or the money for new decor.
So much to do, so much to do!
So it's just covered in red, green, gold, and mocha ornaments for now. I may try to go see if I can pick up any cheap and colorful fillers though to freshen it up a little. See, that's why I start early, time for improvements!?!
It was fun this year to have a little helper too, and we're looking forward to more Holiday traditions while Daddy's home. :)
