The holidays are officially upon us. Last night we had our first holiday gathering (Friendsgiving) at our house. I really had to restrain myself from getting the Christmas decorations out early and decorating this weekend. John is definitely not as eager. For him, decorating means getting into our treacherous attic, digging through all of the many boxes that are sent up there (never to be seen again) and then lugging them downstairs. Generally, in my excitement I proclaim that he has forgotten several boxes and should return to the attic so we can get started. Immediately! Again, he is sweet and accommodating, but less than thrilled.
I am not certain when or how I got so excited about holiday decorations. Maybe it's because I really love my little collections of things and I only get to see them once a year. Or maybe it's because it makes the holiday seem that much more special or magical. Whatever the reason, the decorating starts next weekend and I can't wait!!
Here are some Christmas decoration tutorials to get you in the mood.
