We still do not have the computer up and running, although we DO have internet at the house. BUT since the computer is still in a box, probably until Saturday, I have no pictures to post =/
We have been super busy with getting the rest of the house unpacked - we only have the craft room and the man-room/office to unpack. Then it will be time to hang pictures =) I'm really looking forward to that because I feel like having stuff on those huge walls will help bring everything together.
We purchased appliances on Friday after work -- the refrigerator and dishwasher will be delivered and installed on Saturday. The microwave won't be delivered until December 7 =( BUT at least we still had the counter top microwave to bring to the new house...even if we don't use it, at least it is an option for us =)
We have volunteered to host Thanksgiving for our families this year! I am so excited! We will have the space to actually host and the available seating and counter space! I am really looking forward to cooking and baking for our families =)
I walked into WalMart this weekend and there was a Christmas countdown I walked by -- 43 days...what?! that can NOT be correct. it was people! Today marks 39 days until Christmas!
Has anyone else seen the Christmas decor already go up - even on the light poles in parking lots?! I have friends on FB who have even pulled out their Christmas decoration already. Now I LOVE Christmas and the whole Christmas season just as much as the next person, but can we please give thanks first?! Maybe I really feel this way this year because I am looking forward to decorating and being festive for Autumn/Thanksgiving, but there are already Christmas tree tents up on the sides of the road! J and I usually wait until at LEAST the weekend after Thanksgiving, if not until December before we put our Christmas decor up.
For Christmas this year, my family has planned a progressive dinner for Christmas Eve. The Husband and I are hosting the appetizers and drinks; my sister and her husband will host the main dinner; we'll all go to church and then it's back to my parent's house for dessert and gift giving. I'm really looking forward to this as well =)
I just love the holiday season and this time of year =) I can't wait to start sharing pictures and crafts with you again =) AND I am looking forward to hosting dinners and parties this year =) Oh and let us not forget the 2nd annual cookie baking party =)
Do you decorate for Autumn? When does your Christmas decor make an appearance?
