I haven't been as ambitious as planned this holiday weekend. I had hoped to be almost finished with my decorating by this time, but alas, I'm only about 1/3 of the way there!
Part of the problem is that I didn't get started as soon as I hoped. Most of the things I hoped to accomplish on Friday, didn't get done until yesterday. I did finally make that recipe of sausage balls yesterday morning(good thing because that is all I have eaten all day today)! I had little Joshua's 1st birthday party yesterday afternoon (photos to come as soon as Jennifer sends me some because I forgot my camera), and then of course that led right into the Tech game. After the Tech victory, I got out my trees for the kitchen and the living room and started fluffing. I decided last night that there is no part of the decorating that is worse than fluffing the darn trees! My arms look like I've been in a fight with a cat.
Below are two photos of my kitchen tree. It is a new tree that I purchased for 75% off last year after Christmas because my old one had a broken stand and kept falling over in the middle of the night! This one has a very sturdy metal stand!
This tree is filled with ornaments that I have had since I was a little, kitchen themed ornaments and ornaments that I have picked up on travels.
Here is the Nativity that I purchased last year.
Stockings hung by the chimney with care...
This garland is the biggest pain in the behind to hang!
