I had the best intentions over the weekend to get into the attic and pull out the Christmas boxes but then the rain came and the thought of getting into that dusty small space with who knows what crawling around became but a distant thought. Instead I had myself a mini Pioneer Woman marathon and relaxed on the sofa just listening to the gentle shower outside.
But now, with a break in storms, those boxes are coming down.
I have two little helpers tonight so the going will be slow but that won't stop me from at least getting started. The first thing I do is unpack the boxes and start little piles on the dining room table based on where they might go and then I edit, start a give away pile of things I haven't used in a while and a list of what I might like to add this year.
The real decorating won't start until tomorrow afternoon when the little ones go home. I am hoping to have it all done by Thursday so that I can make a trip to Hobby Lobby on Friday (anyone want to join me) for a few new additions.
We don't usually get our tree until the second weekend in December and but that time I am chomping at the bit (does anyone say that anymore?) to get it decorated.
What about you? How's your decorating coming along?
I know, these pictures have nothing to do with this post but I had to share how pretty the garden looked last week. One of the perks of living in Southern California...
