I put my tree up the first Saturday of Nov and put lights up outside the day before Thanksgiving.

Who is done Christmas shopping? I am almost done.

We put up the tree the day after Thanksgiving (I usually do it in early Nov cause it's my favorite thing to do ALL year long) but we were too busy, so we did it then. I'm hanging our stockings this weekend, but thats all the decorating we're doing (besides anything the girls make). Hopefully next year we'll start doing outside lights

We're heading down to my parents' house tomorrow. Pray for clear roads and good driving weather. My parents have dial up so I won't be checking in while I'm gone. I'll see you all again after the 11th. Have a wonderful week.

I LOVE decorating, but I haven't done to much yet. I got my christmas dishes out and am going to put up my christmas flag today. I plan on starting to pull out the boxed today some time today.

I had to share. We went ice skating last might to the National Gallery of Modern Art. The have a big fountain in the summer time and during the winter they freeze it over and have ice skating. It was really nice. It was night time and they had lights strung all around. Very pretty and special. Then we walked to a local gelato shop and got some hot chocolate and gelato. Very fun evening, but by the time we got home it was way past the kids bedtime. Kathryn fell asleep on the subway on the way home.

Ups, it's not working. I'll upload some pictures later.

Our Christmas decoration. I finished the tree two days ago, but I haven't made any pictures yet.

@Amanda, I'm wishing you all the best for your surgery. I'll keep you in my prayers.

Coffee with the girls.
I enjoy Fridays because a group of neighborhood ladies get together a local coffee shop and just chat, hang out and drink coffee. We laugh, we talk about the kids and the schools and the jobs and what ever else might happen to pop up.
It's a good thing.

Amanda, I pray that all is going well with your lap.

We got our real Christmas tree up and decorated. (we have had our artificial one up for a while). The kids love helping me decorate it.
Every year we collect new ornaments from where we are or that are special to the kids and have their name and date on them.
I have some from when I was a kids. As the kids unwrap them and read the dates on them they say, "wow Mom, these must be antiques." Gee thanks kids. .

We're back at home from our week with family. It was a great time and I really enjoyed being away for a while. It's nice to be back, but our snow has melted to about half what it was when we left.

Where is everyone?

We had a small decorating party tonight in the community room that is next door to our apartment. It was fun, putting up the tree, lights and other decorations and eating cookies.
