How is it that it's only the 4th of December and I'm feeling so pressed to have all my Christmas things done? I am feeling so behind! Our house still needs lights put up, we got our tree yesterday but it still needs to be decorated, I haven't bought a SINGLE Christmas gift and my house is currently littered in boxes and bags full of decorations that need to be set out. I mean, at this point why even decorate at all, right? The month is pretty much over.
As I mentioned, we do have our Christmas tree. We buy a live tree from this guy who turns his front yard into a tree lot every year. Cody' s family bought their trees there every Christmas, so we're just carrying on the tradition! And this year? We got a flocked tree!! I must admit, I was never a huge fan of the flocking - but I think the first year we were married Cody talked me into it. I loved it! It was so 50's Christmas-y and looked so great all decorated. When my tree is done, I'll post pictures - I'm so excited!
As far as lights on our house go...well, I need Cody to do that. Poor guy has been sick all weekend (we've ALL been sick...some nasty cold thing. I didn't get it as bad as my kids or Cody, but we're all a bit sniffy and coughy) so I think we'll be able to get them up this weekend. Why the push? Well see, we live in a neighborhood filled with Griswald's. I swear, half of the power in this City is being used to light these homes. Take a gander -
And that's just a sampling! Sorry about the blurriness - I think Cody and I need to take another trek around the neighborhood and snap more pictures. There are quite a few homes that look like that. Ours won't be that bright. I mean, we're not trying to make our house look like the noon-day sun, or anything. But it will look very festive and I can't wait until the lights are up!!
Well, I would so love to sit here and post all day, but alas - Christmas errands await. I have a plethora of places to go to and I'm not sure I'll survive. Wish me luck on my Merry errands!
