*giggling*

This is as far as I've gotten with decorating this year! The tree is still in a box... and so are the deco! Mike did bring it all down from the attic. But look! My Christmas cards are up on the coffee table ... we do have a cool red metal wreath that we can put all our cards on.

In my defense, I did mail out 165 Christmas cards this year.

Since Christmas is only in a few days and we'll be heading to Beaver for 3 days...I may as well not put all this stuff up. I'm really not a scrooge or a Grinch. *lol*

wow. 165 cards????? You're my hero. Tossing a wreath on the door and a few stockings is way easier!!! Nice job girlie.

Yea...since you won't be there anyway, I would skip putting it up. How do you keep Mathew from throwing all those cards on the floor? Merry Christmas, my friend!

Matthew lives in a "gated" community. Hee Hee. They keep Matthew out of this room because of Sonny the big bird. Matthew loves to take the squirt bottle to him, so Sonny is not very popular with the little dude and visa versa. Matthew will have his chance to rearrange the ornaments at the Baxters. They have a huge tree.

I'm just a "little" bit ahead of you...I have a tree up and that's all! My announcement to all that drops by...."What you see is what you get". This just hasn't been the year for festivities...

as much as I dread putting it all up some years, I dread the putting it away more. See, you're already miles ahead of me there :) we scaled way back on how much we put out this year, and I have to say, I like the simplicity of it all much better.

165 cards! yowsers! you go girl!

I have more boxes just for my family room! Hubby told me that I'm not allowed to buy anything else unless I want the job of organizing the attic......
