I am very sorry to all you traditionalists!! Believe me, I understand!! I am actually a traditionalist too, but.... I have SO MUCH Christmas to get down from the attic and put up in my house, that I just have to get cracking a little earlier than I used to. I am sure my family will be wondering WHERE'S THANKSGIVING? when they come to have Thanksgiving dinner here next week.
They'll just have to deal!! I, with the help of Gabbi Girl, have completely gotten her room ready. As well as the kitchn, the dining room, Todd's Man Cave, the art room, the upstairs extra bedroom, the master, Ellie's room (except the tree), and the den (again, except the tree).
Oh, then there's also the cottage, the bunk room, and the front door. I'd say we have put in probably 80 man hours of work so far. I am NOT exaggerating!! But, we are almost there. Just a couple of trees and a few things here and there, and we get to sit back and enjoy the season. We have several parties planned, including Jin for her friends, Mary Allison for her friends, Ellie and Gabs for their classmates, me and my crew, and then, whoever else would like to enjoy this fully ready to roll house!!
It's my philosophy that as much work as goes into making this sucker look good, then it better dang well be enjoyed.
It's been really fun seeing Miss Gabbi Lou having fun helping me this year. I think her tree just suits her to a tee!! It is sweet and feminine! Precious, just like my baby girl!
