Now that Thanksgiving is done, it means my house is ready for Christmas. Pictured above is my living room (and I look at that photo and realize I should have done a little bit of tidying before snapping it but, well, whatever. The open cupboard is where we store our couch blankets and the kids are always in and out of it. Just cropped outside the bottom is a big pile of cars that the boys were playing with. It’s like I tell people who come over, come on in, make yourself comfortable, and please realize we live here, not a museum.)
We got home from lunch with my parents, sister, and in-laws on Thursday and the boys were begging to get the tree up. So we did. Then Friday, we spent the day decking the rest of the halls and the front lawn (which stays *just* this side of Clark Griswold). And now we relax in the happy glow of twinkling lights for the next five-ish weeks. I have to say I love having the decorations up. (I’ll also be pretty glad to take them down when all is said and done.)
I have friends whose parents decorate on Christmas Eve and take it all down on the 26th. That seems…sad to me. But I guess it works for them. If you decorate, when do you do it?
