Gosh, I never thought I 'd see that day that I had only blogged once a month. So, I thought I better pop in here for a quickie before the month is over! I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving. It was just the three of us here and we didn't fix any Thanksgiving food. Well, we did have pie, because you know - PIE. I was supposed to host a big dinner on Sunday, but we are all fighting the crud - The Bean has it full blown - and I don't want my parents to all be around germs, so we postponed it. Well, I postponed it, but both sets of parents just said to not worry about it and we will celebrate big for Christmas. I guess that's fine. But, I hate to miss any holiday with all of us together. Plus, I am hankering for smoked TURKEY and mashed potatoes with loads of butter. And more pie. Because, PIE. Luckily, I already bought all that, so as soon as everyone is feeling 100% we shall have that turkey. And pie. :)
Thanksgiving Day I drug out the porch decorations and got all my Santa blow molds set up. Today I finished up the lights. We used to do lights all along the roof line, but now I just do the inset porch. I know that blow molds can be considered tacky to some that don't understand them COOLNESS of them, so I try to keep it all contained and together. It has a nice glow from the street and I have noticed a few cars stopping to look. I leave the big red "S" up all year for our last name, but I leave it up for Christmas for "SANTA".
I'm sure it might still look like a crazy bunch to some people, but it just makes my heart sing. I do love my Santa's. I feel like I am really behind in decorating, but there's still five days left in November. I have been itching to decorate for months (I kid you not) so the fact that it is actually time is VERY EXCITING TO ME! Tomorrow I will drag in all the bins and let the fun begin.
Last year I bought a white tree. I have never had a white tree - have you? I am wondering if it is really bright or puts off heat? That may sound silly, but we have a small, well insulated house and sometimes the heat of the tree really heats up the living room. I think a white tree with all my vintage ornaments will be so pretty. But, I don't want to be all blind and sweaty. LMK if you have a preference, please.
Off to bed with some Vicks. You guys take care and thanks for stopping by.
