I have a little problem.....when it comes to decorating....I don't have a lot of patience. I love decorating. I love staring at a room and figuring out how to change things.....or how it would work better. My problem....once I have figured out how I want to decorate.....I want it done quickly. No waiting. It must get done pronto. It's like all my adrenaline rushes and I must.decorate.now.
So, when I decided to decorate for Christmas....I wanted it done quickly. Literally, I believe it took me 5 minutes.....well, probably 15 minutes.... to Christmas-orate our home.
I decided not to put ornaments on our tree this year. It wasn't a big deal to anyone...the boys are not very interested in decorating the tree. Instead, I found a spool of ribbon and wrapped it around the tree.....along with some hay stuff (can't think what it's called). The hay stuff was actually still on the tree from last year. Did I mention that we've been using fake trees for the past few years?
Everything else....I just took out of the box and scattered about. I threw some pre-lit garland over the window hardware. Done.
I love having the white lights glowing in the evening. Only problem....I have a mini energy saver/safety guy living with me. The first evening that I lit my trees and garland....Sammy went around unplugging the lights and lecturing me on safety issues. I had to explain to him that...."momma needs her white lights". I swear I really do. There is something so cozy about white Christmas lights.....I love having them on.
