Now that we have successfully made it through Thanksgiving, the time has come to deck the halls (and the house) in preparation for Christmas. The idea that the holidays are a time of planning, stress, and not nearly enough sleep is an understatement.
I brought down all of our Christmas decorations from the attic early this week and after getting the tree put up, it proceeded to stand there and mock me for the three days it took me to properly string lights on it. This was my first year stringing the lights myself, and about 30 minutes into the job I proceeded to declare that there would be no Christmas.
I did get the lights on the tree eventually, though. Last night, after the above picture was taken. Today’s to-do list consists of getting the ornaments put on the tree and unloading the massive amount of decorations I seem to have accumulated throughout the years from those bins and putting them up around the house. Wish me luck!
