So, this year I told my Darling Husband that I didn’t want to bring out all the Christmas decorations. This year things are a bit different with family and while we will have a few people in before, we will be just the two of us and the 4 four legged kids for Christmas. Do we really need 3 Christmas trees, anyway?
So, I’m out shopping one day last week and come home to ALL the Christmas storage boxes down from the attic and in the garage. Not good. I say I’m only putting up one tree! (Sort of the same as the declaration “I only want ONE little dog). See where this is going?
I see that my Darling Husband already has that one tree up with lights blazing. After a day of shopping, I decorate the tree (all inside decorating is my job) and by the time it’s done, I’m wiped out from the long day. So, I state that we are done because what goes up must come down and in only a short 4 weeks.
Guess how that declaration went for me? Click on pics for larger view.
Tree #2 White House Ornaments
Tree #3 Mother’s Ornaments
He stated that we would just put the other two trees up so we will have the pretty lights and I don’t have to do any decorations… the lights will be pretty. Right…I’m going to have bare trees sitting around my house.
Did we stop there? Oh no.
This was Mom’s I love her.
Of course, there is more around but you get the gist. Outside he has lights, two trees, wreath on the door and he’s not finished. He has more lights to put out. Just thinking of taking all this down drove me share some suds with Santa.
You know this is how I got 4 dogs, don’t you? Who, by the way, are also decorated with reindeer bells. I’m sure we aren’t done with them either and they are trying to be so good and quiet (left pic) so that we don’t put elf clothes on them like last year.
So it goes in the Meldrum Household.
Merry Christmas, Y’all!
