It's Coming...I Can Feel It!



The air has turned crisp here in Oklahoma, the foliage seems to have been short lived, the toy commercials have taken over, and my children have been working on their lists. That can only mean one thing, I better get prepared because Christmas will be here in a flash. I have been working on my front porch decor and have all my interior decorating done except for the tree, we will trim the tree this weekend. We make finger foods, have eggnog, and listen to holiday music while the tree gets bejeweled. When the tree is finished we toast it with a glass of "the nog" then settle in for our annual Family Christmas movie.....National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. My dad always made Christmas such an event when I was growing up and I hope that I have passed that along to my children. What kind of customs do you have when you trim your tree? I'd love to hear about them. Have a great day! Paula

I trim the tree... I know it's sad but I'm so OCD when it comes to decorating the tree. I do let my kids put some stuff on, under my direction that is. Told ya OCD!
We too watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (after the kids go to bed) It's a christmas favorite that along with A christmas story.

Your wreath looks incredible! I can't wait until next week when we come home to visit and I get to walk right through that door!!! :) It's been too long. Have fun this weekend decorating that tree.

Miss You,

I can't wait to see your Christmas decorations. I love that wreath on your door.

My husband always buys egg nog and shares with the kids. I'm not a fan of it. But the kids always look forward to it. We'll put up our C-mas tree the day after Thanksgiving. It's such a huge task. :-)
