My post here, might get on certain peoples nerves. (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!) Those who say that Thanksgiving should have it's time in the spotlight-THEN CHRISTMAS. While, I think it's a valid point. I ignore it. Completely.
I'm a Christmas lover, and I make no apologies for it. PLUS, we travel so much over the next couple months, that I just want it up, so I can enjoy it while we are here.
This is by far the earliest our tree has ever been up.
We ordered a new one, since we threw ours out last year, and Paul wanted to "check the lights" so up it went, and up it has stayed.
Since we leave Wednesday for Michigan, we decided to get everything all decorated this weekend.
And these two right here, thankfully they still appreciate and love my Christmas obsession, and were ready to get this party started!
Wait a minute.
Friday I went to volunteer at school, and when I walked into Pierce's class he looked terrible! He was sitting at his desk, holding his head and wearing his coat inside. I immediately went into mom-mode, and we left for home, I could tell this was the real deal. One doctor visit later, and another diagnosis of strep throat. AGAIN.
Even though he felt bad, he kept pushing to decorate the tree, but quickly petered out.
But Hope was going strong!
I try really hard to just let them do as they see fit, but it's hard for me, but I keep trying....
Thankfully, after the ibuprofen started to kick in, Pierce was up to decorating some more.
And even Paul. I must say, I love that he doesn't mind my neurotic Christmas obsession. I know a lot of men would gripe, but he's good about it.
So, this was the tree last night, and I just thought it needed something else...(I usually do a ribbon, but I decided against it this year. )
So today, I went and got this meshy looking stuff, that sort of resembles something you might wash yourself with.
And just spun it around the tree...
What do you think? With or without it?
OH LOOK! I even put some stuff on the porch! So all my neighbors can comment on what crazies we are. HOLLA!
Haters gonna hate, but I AM HAPPY.
