Over Thanksgiving Holiday, Sweet-boy could not wait to get our house festive for December. He gets so excited and can hardly wait to get out the lights. I think it has something to do with the fact that when he was a small boy he would get a strand of lights to run around the house with, plugging in here, stringing there, so he loves it when that box comes out. (I know what a great mom that I gave a 1 year old something to stick in the outlets and drag around the house and still encourage each year.)
The kids love to decorate their tree with all the many ornaments that we have gathered throughout the years. My favorite is the picture frame ones of them from baby to current year that we have on the tree. I love to see how they have changed each year to remember how fast time flies and that I need to enjoy each and every minute.
So we began the task of decorating the tree.
Then the ceremonial placing of the stockings and the kids pictures with Santa. For another great story about the Santa pictures click here.
We take a break to make gingerbread cookies and get that sugar buzz going.The last and most important of all the decorating comes next, the wreathing of my car.
Yes, I put a wreath on my car and not just any wreath, a light strung, ribbon embelished, berry wearing wreath. Everyone gives me a hard time but I love it, kinda my signature thing during the Christmas Season. Plus, I love that when I drive around people smile as I drive by, I am spreading some holiday cheer.
(Doesn't my car look like it is smiling?)
Merry Christmas from my home of chaos to yours.
