I got home last night and realized how close Christmas actually is and I’m NOT ready! Do you do much holiday decorating? For me it usually depends on how busy the month of December has been and how much we’re traveling. Keith was gone the first week of December, I was gone the second week so normally I would do the minimum but looking at my list, it still seems like a lot. Luckily, Keith helps!
He put the lights on the railing right after Thanksgiving because I like to sit on the porch when it’s all lit up. Keith also got a couple poinsettias the day before I left for my trip and while I was gone, he hung the wreath, bought and set up a lighted reindeer on our little patch of grass …
….a close up of the reindeer.
Sometimes we have a real tree but not usually when we’re doing a lot of traveling in December so he set up the artificial tree while I was gone too. We will wait to decorate it until the weekend before Christmas when Chris, Becky, Rae, and Mo arrive. Tree decorating night is one of my favorite traditions even if it’s happening so close to Christmas.
I need to dig through my Christmas bins to find my tree skirt, my ornaments, and my Jim Shore snowman and Santas. I also need to get a few Xmas cards in the mail – that really should have been done before I left for my trip and I need to shop for a few stocking stuffers. Unpacking is also on today’s agenda and if I’m lucky I might even get to sew a stitch or two!
EDIT: ….and the stockings!! I forgot all about getting the stockings hung!
How do you decorate for the holidays? Are you ready for Christmas?!!
