There are very few days each year any more exciting than the one where I pull out all my Christmas decorations.
I love wreaths. I have so many, this one had to be hung on the bathroom door.
I love pine garland with lights in it. I love personal stockings. Oh, how I love everything about Christmas!
Steve helped me trim the tree while Tucker laid on the couch pouting. He remembers being scolded the past three years for chewing up our ornaments. Hopefully this will be the year he finally learns. We say that every year.
Steve's favorite part is hanging our special ornaments (I call these the tacky ones).
I was so excited when my mom brought this wreath with her when she visited. I bought it last year at the Tacoma Mall and was bummed when I couldn't fit it in my suitcase.
My sister helped me last night with the more domestic things. These aren't natural for me, so I enlisted her help. She said it was actually quite simple. I'm more at ease with extension cords and pine garlands.
I love Christmas cards. I've been sending them out since I was 12 years old.
The stockings are hung by the chimney with care.
And here are the two men of my life. They make me so happy. Even happier than having a home to decorate. Enjoy this upcoming month and all the festivities!
