Ho, Ho, Ho...Hey!
Hey...is it Christmas already!?!
Feels like it with all this cold and snow, doesn't it?
I have to admit that my front porch looks ridiculous with my fall decor competing with the snow and cold weather. But I'm still not ready to decorate for Christmas. I usually wait until Thanksgiving weekend.
Apparently, some of my relatives have their Christmas trees up. Wow, good for them.
Times sure have changed from when I was a little girl. You did not decorate until right before Christmas.
A lot of families even waited until Christmas Eve to put up their trees.
One of my most vivid memories as a child is of my grandmother decorating for the holidays.
One year, she decided to enter a contest and had to have her outside decor up the first week of December. We lived in a small town and it became the talk of the town that her decor was up so early. I even had 2 snotty girls march up to me at school and started badgering me about my grandmother putting her decorations up so early. LOL! My, how times have changed.
I will admit that not much indoor decor will happen this year.
I've gotten myself into a fun mess. Stripping wallpaper and such. More on that later.
But, I do have my front porch. I can still decorate it for Christmas.
Maybe...after it warms up some and all the snow melts.
