This year I already have my wreath on the door and will try to have most of the living rm. done by Tuesday nite. I "get" to go to my in-laws this Thanksgiving, and won't get to put t up before if I don't hurry. I'm cleaning carpet tomorrow, and clearing shelves so I can get stuff out. I especially need the distraction this year!

Well mine normally goes up Fri or Sat after Thanksgiving BUT Adam has conned me into doing it today. So have been out there going thro' my ornaments and table top decos. I have 2 wreaths both pretty but Gina made me one of them and I wanted it on door lol Judy aleady had the other one on door but I told Adam I wanted Gina's on there so dear nut that he is put that one on outside and other one on inside. So my Christmas cards will go top of it on side of it and under it and when I run out of room there will start on entertainment center and walls.
I will take what I am served knowing someone out there is being served MUCH less

The tree is up and almost half the ornies are on the tree. Still have the rest of the house to do, but I'm so slow this year. Usually I have it all up by Friday after Thanksgiving. At the rate I'm going I'll finish by Easter lol

Guess what everybody? I actually have my tree up. Can you believe it. Me, the one who waits until 2 days before to say I'll put it up next weekend. All of last years ornie exchange ornaments are on it. As I get the ones from this year they will go on it also. I've gotten most of them.
I'll also put on some special ones that the kids have made for me over the years.

Put it up today. Tomorrow I will put all my snowmen out.

We put our tree up last Sunday but so far all we have on it are the lights, the silver bead garland and the star/angel. We will put all the ornaments on it tomorrow (Saturday) when ds1 is home from college and we can all do it together.
