I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Ours turned out a little differently than we had planned. I got sick, so Josh and I wound up spending Thanksgiving at home, with me a snotty mess on the couch.
I missed having a big Thanksgiving with my family, but it was quite nice to stay home for four days and not really have to do anything. And a HUGE thank you to my wonderful husband for taking such good care of me while I was sick.
I have so very many things to be thankful for. My family, friends, the DOC, my job, health insurance, my home, and that we are blessed enough to have everything we need. I am so thankful, and feel so blessed.
By Friday afternoon, I was starting to feel better. You know what that means, right?
CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS!!! :D
|Please ignore the speaker. It is not part of the decor...|
In case you couldn't tell, I LOVE Christmas!!! I will listen to nothing but Christmas music between now and the end of December. I will talk about Christmas in my posts and tweets A LOT over the next month. You have been warned.
So Friday afternoon, I brought the boxes up from the basement and decked the halls while my husband was super-wonderful and put up the lights outside.
And Saturday, up went the tree!
This is the first year that Josh and I have had a full-size tree. In our old tiny one-bedroom apartment, a big tree never would have fit. We got this one after Christmas last year.
Words cannot describe how happy it makes me to have this beautiful tree in our living room. I love it.
Also, we can finally hang this ornament that we purchased the first Christmas after we got married.
Isn't it cute? Yes, I'm ridiculous, I know.
Whatever holiday you and your family celebrate this season, I hope you have as much fun preparing for it as I do.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to start wrapping presents...
