Christmas Time


Aaand it’s Christmas time!  In the past 9 years, we’ve put up our tree maybe 5 times.  Most of those times also involved throwing it up like a few days before Christmas.  This year, we already have our old tree up in the loft area and are going to pick up our Habitat ReStore tree this weekend to put up downstairs.  We’ve bought stockings for the fireplace and put up wreaths on the door. I honestly don’t know who we are anymore!  Before this year, our Christmas decorations literally consisted of that tree and one bag of ornaments.  I’m just excited to actually have room to put things up and store things until next year!  Our old place was so small and had absolutely zero storage.  This year, we bought a 9ft Christmas tree!

We’re also hosting Christmas this year for my parents.  It’s going to be overwhelming and fun at the same time.  I’ve never made Christmas dinner before so I’m totally unprepared!  I should’ve taken better notes at Thanksgiving dinner!  What recipes should I make?  Are cold cut turkey breast sandwiches out of the question?!
