Funny thing … when the kids aren’t in the house (though they are still in town but Snarl is at university and we treat it as though he’s 100s of miles away), the decorating takes longer.
The kids are good at putting something up, just sticking it somewhere, and it is fine. They understand the “wow” factor.
I, on the other hand, plod along. I’m like a slow giftwrapper during Holidays at the department stores.
Lately, I’ve considered taking a half day off from work … to decorate? Yes.
HM and the kids LOVE decorations, and they are all far more traditional than one would think.
Still, I might have this licked in another two days. (These are actually pics from last year, but honestly, due to the tradition mongers in this household, I will repeat most of it.)
And where’s the writing, you ask? I’m thinking, ruminating, planning as I string lights and arrange (prickly) holly in the greens on the stairway bannister.
Anyone else still in holiday “process?” Oh, do tell!!!! Just say you, too, were caught off guard by Thanksgiving coming “late” or some wacky weather that held you up or that your dog ate your decorations, or something.
