Christmas Decorating Begins!

This is what I’m doing this weekend, probably as so many of you are.   Gathering the Fall stuff to be put away.

Getting all the Christmas stuff out.  Not sure what’s going  where yet, but I did manage to decide on putting the tree in front of the living room window.  Thankfully, my son is visiting and I asked him to help me get the Christmas boxes that were put up in the attic.

Some Christmas music on the radio and I am good to go!  I’ll be back when I come up for air and get a good amount of this done.  I’d like to knock it all out by this weekend.  Then it will be on to helping my daughter decorate her house!

I love opening up my boxes and bins every year because sometimes I forget what I have!  I find that happens especially when I’ve bought something on clearance and it is pretty much packed away as soon as I get it home.  Do you ever forget what you have? 

I’ll be posting my “Thank You Giveaway” on Sunday, so I hope you’ll come back and enter!

I started doing it today too. And yes, I'm amazed at how much I forget what I had last year. It's almost like a mini Xmas breaking all the stuff out again.

Hi Kathy, thank you for your prayers, it means so much to have such good friends..... little Jack is trying to hold on, at least he is getting bigger from Mommy's milk, that's a real blessing!
I love to open Christmas up and be surprised by something I bought on clearance, isn't it fun?
Hugs,

Hi Kathy,

I love going though all the containers with my children. Some years we have just used their stuff animals for the tree. I'm still trying to decide.
Your going to make wonderful memories in your new home. Happy decorating.
