"It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas"

I started at 6:30 am this morning and by 1:00 pm all the inside decorating was done! I usually have my tree up the day after Thanksgiving but I was moving a little slower this year in getting things together. I had the dread but now that it's done, I have a little more Christmas spirit.
This is my Caroler Kid that I found at Goodwill. She sings when you press her hand and her head moves back and forth. My Christmas tree has a variety of ornaments from Disney to Snowbaby Dept.56, which I collect. When we went to Bronner's Christmas Wonderland in Michigan, we picked up some beautiful ornaments that reminded Mike of his past, like the glass bells and birds with pine cones.


I hope to finish up the outside decorations this weekend if weather permits. The snow started falling around 1:00 pm today and it is very windy & icy right now. I feel a lot more organized and ready to finish up my Christmas Shopping....On-line shopping is the best! Delivery right to your door and you don't have to fight the crowd.....I just wish I had a personal gift wrapper to come and vist. I don't like to wrap too early cause I forget what I got people.

Happy December 1st! 23 shopping days left......

You are on the decorating, wow! We are doing it in phases (except for this week) tree went up, then the next day bathroom got decorated, then the next day outside, etc. etc.
Decorations are beautiful!

Beautiful tree! We pretty much have the inside done, but like you, I'm waiting for better weather before tackiling the outside decorations.
