Its Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Today THE tree went up - all 9 ft of it! For months now, I've "lobbied" for a new, slim, smaller tree. (Of course, you understand that "lobby" is code for nag!) It didn't happen. The big tree came out of the shop and emerged into the house - again! It takes an entire day to put it together and decorate it.I lost count at 700 lights. It takes an engineering degree to make it fit into our living room without taking over the entire floor space. (Did I mention that neither of us has that particular degree?) But, after much discussion and many design changes, it is up and as close to the wall as possible, leaving some room for toddlers, dogs and family to gather and open presents! And, as much as I hate to admit it, it is beautiful!

Tomorrow, the rest of the decorating will get done. Snowmen will fill every bare spot and table top and snowflakes will accompany them! We're even supposed to have REAL snow on Sunday morning! Most of my Christmas shopping is done (yet to be delivered by Mr. UPS). I'll soon start baking cookies.... Yes, indeed, its beginning to look a lot like Christmas on Windy Knoll!!
