Christmas Preparations

by adustyframe ~ December 9th, 2014

It’s taking us forever to get the house decorated for Christmas. We had issues with the tree but it’s finally up. I had to decide what ornaments we’d put on it or not since little guy is into checking out everything.

I know some people advocate decorating as normal and then training them not to touch but that honestly feels like sapping the joy out of Christmas for the whole house to me.

We put only fabric ornaments at the bottom and I didn’t put all my red glass bulbs since they break so easily. I did have a bunch of shatterproof bulbs that look like peppermint candy so we put those on. I’m going to see if the craft store has some red shatterproof bulbs just because I LOVE my red bulbs on the tree.

We probably won’t do tinsel either. I know some people think it’s tacky but I like a little bit all over the tree to help it sparkle more.

So our tree looks a bit different this year. I haven’t put up my nativity or my snowmen yet….they’re still in storage! Maybe tomorrow!

Baby is loving James’ Fisher Price nativity. He sits and plays with it for quite awhile.

I got the Christmas music out today so it will start sounding jolly around here soon!

We’re not making treats yet. If we start now, I’ll gain way too much weight and I already have more than plenty to lose!

How is your Christmas prep coming along?

    I had one or two Christmasy treats after Thanksgiving, but am waiting on the rest tile Christmas week for the same reason.

    We also had fabric and non-breakable ornaments on the lower branches when our guys were little.

    We decorated after Thanksgiving all together. It would take me days if I had to do it myself. I wasn’t feeling Christmasy at all until we did that, playing Christmas music while we did.

    I think I am probably 3/4 done with shopping (Yay online shopping and free shipping!) Have my Christmas letter written with just a little adjustment needed and Christmas cards to address, but should be able to finish that in a day or two.

    Sounds nice! 🙂 My husband wanted Christmas up as soon as we landed back so we’ve had it since November lol! I like it though, Christmas colors are my favorites 😀
