I Said I Wouldn’t Do It

I’m one of those people who has always waited until after Thanksgiving to start decorating for Christmas (or at least until after Thanksgiving dinner!).

But this year, things are a little different.  Thanksgiving is later this year leaving less time between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Plus, we are travelling for both holidays.

So the decorations went up this weekend.

I cut out everything I needed for Evelyn’s stocking last year when I made Trenton’s and Charlotte’s stockings.  But for some reason I didn’t make Evelyn’s stocking at the same time.  I’ll blame it on pregnancy brain.  So, I have stocking sewing on my to-do list.

Those of you who are friends with me on facebook, may have seen this picture that “I” posted over the weekend.

It had the caption “awesome husband!”.

But – I didn’t take the picture.  I didn’t post it to facebook either.

You see, my husband is kind of sneaky.  While I was working on getting dinner ready, he grabbed my phone without me seeing, snapped a picture, and posted it to facebook as me with the above caption.  When I was the one who put the lights up outside.

I will give him credit for putting up one corner though.  He wanted me to snap a photo of him.

But then he wouldn’t snap one of me.  So I had to resort to having my always-on-the-go kids take pictures for me.

Oh well, at least there’s blurry evidence that I was the one who did most of the work!  And Jarrod – just wait.  I’ll get you soon!

Oh, I just love all the decorations! We're moving right before Christmas, so no decorations for us this year. I'll live vicariously through you ;)

I love your decorations! We decorated yesterday. There is something so special and fun about turning up Christmas tunes and laughing with family as we transform our home into a Christmas wonderland. Enjoy Thanksgiving! :)
