COME BACK AND READ THIS NEXT YEAR IN NOVEMBER!!! REMEMBER WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT AND WHAT EACH OF US REALLY ENJOYED AND DO "CHRISTMAS" THAT WAY IN 2011!!
ONE TREE IS UP!!
That's it, this year!
No other trees and not even all the ornaments!
But WE DID PUT A TREE UP
It's starting to "look" like Christmas around here!
Not alot like a Witt Christmas, but like Christmas!
The Kiddos enjoyed it!
They put on the ornaments that are in each of their bins only! We didn't bring out the "big" box of ornaments!
Everything has to be ready to be moved!
Christmas decorating is very different this year. But it's working and we're mostly, happy with it!
But there's boxes next to the tree...
Those boxes hold all our stuff! The pictures from the walls, the lil set-outs, the candles, y'know all our "stuff"
We have to be prepared when they come in to paint and refinish the floors.
We have to be ready, to be out of the contractors way!
So we are READY (sorta) Can you ever be ready to turn your home over to a someone else?
But, Christmas is simple this year!
The last minute shopping, which is sooooo not like me, isn't even making me crazy!
I'm under the idea, if the gift is found and purchased, it's good and if the right gift isn't found and purchase, it's good!
I won't be cooking in my home this Christmas and I'm already missing that part!
I enjoy baking tons and tons of cookies!
I enjoy the "busy"of this time of year
I really enjoy that 'hustle n bustle' we sing about! But NOT the crazy busy!!
I enjoy the excitement of the kiddos!
I enjoy the cooking!
I REALLY ENJOY the decorating!
I'm taking notes of what is really missed and what we can do without!
It's a good lesson for me....there's alot I can cut out and there's a few things I can put more time into!
I can chill out a lil more and enjoy the fun busy a lil more!
Next year, tons of cookies and maybe only 1 tree again,
but ALL the decorations!!
