This Christmas I haven't found the time to decorate as much. I have some beautiful houses that I really enjoy putting up and enjoy looking at them through the season and I still haven't put them up. I think it's because we did had school 2 days each of the first 2 weeks this month and then on the other days we were busy with errands, baking and other projects. So I have decided that I won't put up our houses this year, but as I come accross a decoration that I want out I will still put it up. We have our Christmas tree, Little People Nativity Set, basket of Christmas books, and some Christmas candles out. We also have 2 singing and dancing stuffed animals that the kids enjoy playing with out. We also have several various pictures that the kids have made that go with the Christmas Story hanging on our walls. On Saturday I was looking for something in my Christmas box and found another small nativity piece that belongs to Katy so I got that our and set it on the counter with my plant.
I also have some squashes and Indian corn still out that were decorations around Thanksgiving. I'm hoping to cook the rest of the squashes today and have the kids take the corn off the cobs, so we can use it to pop one evening. I have some more white taper candles I want to put out and was trying to remember where some candle holders are. I remembered and hope to get them set up today as well. I think most of my candle holders are still actually packed in a box from when we moved, but I'm not exactly sure which box, so I don't want to start unpacking something else and making another project that I don't need to take on right now.
