It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

I LOVE CHRISTMAS! Not just Christmas, but the whole Christmas season. I love the lights, the music, the garland, stockings, Christmas goodies, Christmas movies, colder weather, Santa Claus & elves & picking out the perfect gift for all my loved ones.

Even though I don't really "care" for Thanksgiving, I do respect the holiday enough that I ALWAYS wait until after Thanksgiving to put up my Christmas decorations. So as soon as we got home from our trip to Beaumont for Thanksgiving I got to work decorating my house!

I put our Christmas tree up but sadly it sat there for almost a week before we got around to decorating it. I wanted to have more of a kid friendly tree with colored lights this year instead of white lights. So I bought 3 strands but that barely covered the bottom of the tree, lol. A few days later I bought 5 more boxes & that did the trick. And then Addy decided that she wanted popcorn garland. So I bought plain non butter popcorn & strung it on fishing line. It took almost 2 bags of popcorn & around 3 & 1/2 hours! It was a lot of work but I got it done! (And then the very next day, Pepper ate some of it!!!) And finally the tree was ready to be decorated!

So the other night I gathered everyone in the playroom, turned on the Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer movie & we got to work decorating our Christmas tree!

And if I do say so myself, I think our Christmas tree looks GREAT!!!
