And So It Begins...

So, we got home from church today and Ryan says to me, "Let's put up the Christmas tree." And I was like "Are ya kidding?!". So began the discussion of putting up the tree and Thanksgiving will be here before we know it and everyone is coming for dinner and wouldn't it be nice to have the tree up for all to see and.... He's like a little kid! (And he's all mine!) So he brought in the tree, yes we have a fake tree; for years we went to the tree lot and tied the tree to the top of the car and brought it home to make a mess all over our floors. About 3 years yrs ago, when my parents down sized their tree, we inherited their beautiful tree. We normally decorate the Friday after thanksgiving, but I guess this year the kids (all 3 of them) couldn't wait! I will probably take the next week or so to finish up the tree and house, so when it's done, I will be sure to let you know! So now starts our Christmas season and wishing you and your family a happy start to yours!

My hubby brought all of our Christmas stuff in from the top of the garage today. I was so tempted to put our tree up today or at least start most of my decorating, but I held off. I will probably do it soon though just so I can have it done before my surgery.

Wow...really! Way to go Ryan! I cannot believe you are almost ready! We will be done on Thanksgiving night...just like every year. Can't wait to see your finished tree!

Holy Cow!!! I feel like a scrooge now. Our tree will not go up until after Dec 10th. AND it comes down Dec 26th.
Good for you though. A head start is always good.

I can so relate with the husband being an extra kid! I always say I have 5 kids! We now have a fake tree too. We used to do the live tree and then one year I saw a pretty fake one at Home Depot and it was ON SALE so that was that. Plus, it has the lights already on it! Couldn't pass that up!!! :)

Oh my...I am SO not ready for Christmas! Guess I better start,huh? Seems like the year just flew by!! Maybe you'll get me started :)

Look at you all go! We have a fake now too. We did the whole cut down our own tree for awhile then bought a fake. We did do a real one last year though just to mix it up but the fake will make an appearance this year!

Way to go! We were just discussing today where we were going to put our tree. We have this same discussion every year. We have a very small living room. And now that I have just added two new bookshelves to our living room, there is even less space.

I think this year the tree will go in front of the fire place and we will not be able to light a fire until after Christmas. Oh well, the tree will be pretty to look at!

Can't wait to see how it looks all decorated!
