It's December, and that means the decorating has begun. OY! I love it and dread it at the same time. How did I get so many boxes of Christmas things? The tree is up and most of the ornaments are on, thanks to the children's efforts, but I still need to get out all the little extras like stockings and candles and bingle balls and whofoo fluff.
That tree is even larger than it looks. Usually we put it more in a corner, but the kids wanted it in front of the window. It's HUGE. When you look in from outside, it looks like a mountain sprouted in the middle of the living room. We had to roll up the rug, and now I'm trying to figure out if it's even possible to unroll it.
I think I should stop reading blogs until January. Either I will find more holiday things I want to make (and as you can see from all those boxes, I really don't need any more holiday things), or I will find more recipes I want to try (how many dozens of cookies do we really need to eat?).
