I can't believe that I haven't even started on my tree yet. I have been so busy putting lights through the whole house. I have my daughter's bedroom to do and the master bedroom's bay window. My hubby finished doing the bay window in the dining room because they are so big and I have a hard time doing them. My hubby and daughter are at Menard's right now getting some clips so he can hang all the outside lights tomorrow. I have a feeling he is getting some lawn decorations also. The one my mother in law gave us broke last year so hubby threw it out.
I wish I had a fireplace so I could hang our stocks on. I usually hang our stockings from the Christmas lights I put around our entertainment center. It looks ok but I always wanted a fireplace. I think if we move in 2 years that will be one of the things I will want in our house.
I have this beautiful wreath on the front of my inside door. It is made of walnuts and has lights through out it. My ex sister in laws father made it for my mother. I will take a picture of it when we finish decorating the whole house.
The weather here has been so beautiful. It has been in the upper 50's to lower 60's. On Thursday it is only suppose to be in the 30's. I told my hubby he only has a few more days of nice weather to put the outdoor decorations up. I think if I didn't tell him that he wouldn't have gotten his butt up off the couch to go to Menard's.
I love reading everyone's journal where they are talking about their different holiday memories. When I was a kid we used to be able to open one gift on Christmas Eve. I loved that. We would go to church Christmas morning and then come home to a great meal my mother would make.
Well, it is time for me to go because I just heard my daughter and hubby come home and I want to see what they bought.
