I’m supposed to be writing the Dr. Nellie post today.
Instead I’m doing this…
watching my kids decorate for Christmas.
however they want to.
without my “input”.
In fact, I was given the task of threading the Fruit Loop garland.
I had forgotten what a pain those are to do.
And I bet they don’t survive the night.
That darn dog thought they were tasty.
deer hunting in Wi is coming up.
thus the orange hat.
in the middle of the day.
we took a trip to Goodwill last week for sweaters.
see, we were in Urban Outfitters shopping for sweaters.
we looked at the current styles and realized we had seen them elsewhere.
tip of the day: ugly sweaters are in! go to the thrift store for the best vintage looks!
I learned something today.
you must always check the integrity of the fake branches.
from underneath the fake tree.
by looking up.
and they were allowed to continue.
it was touch and go for a while there!
as they were putting up decorations I had an aha moment.
I had been planning an elaborate set-up for photo’s.
yeah, it took me several of these shots to realize I might have something right here.
this will be this year’s Christmas photo…
I could just gobble them up…they are so darn cute!
it’s a crime.
back to work.
why have I needed to control this?
and have it a certain way?
And then ended the day with some of Daddy’s cocoa…
truth be told, there is easily another day of decorating they have planned.
and buckets of “stuff” all over the house.
but, it’s worth it.
I’m going to do it again tomorrow.
I’ll be making more of those darn fruit loop garlands.
and stringing popcorn.
tying candy canes.
and making a kissing ball.
I’ll probably ignore most of the laundry.
for sure the pile to be put away.
and gosh that floor is dirty.
and is going to stay that way a bit longer.
more important matters are afoot!
Dr. Nellie will be back.
For right now….more important matters are afoot!
