Black Friday at Our House

The day after Thanksgiving is generally OUR day of decorating for Christmas . . . the past few years, the decorating has been a bit minimal mostly due to exhaustion. O.k. maybe I should be really real here . . . it was more like the fact that I have four little boys that are VERY hands on!. This year . . . we are ALL on for decorating! We started with a few little things the other day and continued a bit more today. We are waiting on the tree for a few more days because I really want the boys to experience going out and cutting down our Christmas tree . . . think of the Griswald Family Christmas . . . minus the flying car, waist high snow, driving under a semi and squirrel in the tree. Well, the squirrel in the tree MIGHT be fun! Randy is not so "into" the experience.

Here are a few more photos of our Christmas decorating:

a new table scape for our table

a poinsettia table runner (needs a bit of ironing . . . I did use the Downy wrinkle release . . .  hmmmm)

on my little table in the kitchen . . . a crystal bowl of faux snow, birds and paper stars

old fashioned television with winter scene, last years Christmas photo and yankee candle

a little Happy Holidays

the family room coffee table . . . jar full of "snow" and Happy Holidays banner with Santa hat. Christmas books and a small retro television with winter scene.

the boys are busy with Lego building

a little Charlie Brown Christmas . . .  book

basket with Christmas greenery on a bench on our porch

Katelyn and I have had a lovely day of "decorating" our home. We have five little trees set out . . . one in our library and one in each of the kids' bedrooms. They love them!

Katelyn and I are watching a Christmas movie . . . The Road to Christmas. It is very good so far.

I have accomplished a few things on my list that I wanted done this weekend . . .

the Christmas photo has been taken

and ordered

I am quite relieved!

The kids had a great time "posing" for the card. I can't wait to post it!

Well, must get to my movie.

Have a great day!
