This year we didn't have guests over the holiday, but we managed to keep busy with visiting family, yard/house work, going to the movies -- Skyfall, anyone? -- or putting up Christmas decorations. Wow, we have never had all our decorations up before December! Thanksgiving was early and my hubs was on a mission! It probably has to do with work stuff, since their building is moving mid-December and he sold his soul to the devil for the lucky chance to be the head-honcho in charge of the move . . . along with his real work. That man is seriously stressed out.
Anyway, we did our Yuletide decorating this last weekend and when I too pictures it didn't look like much. It's hard to believe that all this came out of 8 large plastic boxes! Just the ornaments on the tree came from 3 boxes. Well, I have to confess that I didn't put everything up. There's the lighted garland that decorated the staircase, or all the Christmas picks that I used to place around the smokers, or the box of assorted Christmas stuff from my childhood (We save it for sentimental reasons, not for showing), or the Precious Moments figurines that make my husband cringe every time he sees them.
Hubs took care of the outside lights--sorry didn't think to take a picture last night. I'll try to tonight and post it. I took care of the inside--Hubs decorated the tree, while I unwrapped every single ornament from tissue paper. The kidlet placed 5, yes five ornaments on the tree.

It's time to make the bonbons! I have the camera downstairs, so I'll take pictures if I'm not too chocolatey.
