Finally Decorated

We got the tree decorated. The other boxes of decorations are sitting and waiting for someone to get festive enough to put them up. I am thinking they might be waiting about a year before they see the light of the outside world. The tree is about all we could muster. Santa might make his way out just because I need something to wish to and he is my best bet right now.
This weekend we are going to my first nephews birthday party. Eli is turning 4 and I am sure he is beyond excited. It will be a fun time with family, it is good to get out of the house for a while and celebrate.
I think I will wrap gifts this weekend too and get some other stuff done. We only have a couple more gift to get this year, I must say I am proud of myself for getting most of the shopping done early a little at a time. I hate feeling overwhelmed with buying right before the holiday, it is not good on the nerves or the checkbook.
Hope everyone is going to have a warm and happy weekend. It is too cold here and I am hoping for a little snow to warm it up. I know that sounds crazy to some of you but when you are at -2 degrees, snow at 25 degrees is almost tropical. The trees by the river this moring looked like they had been glittered. I have never seen anything like it, I wish I had a camera that could capture it to show you, but you will just have to trust me.

Your tree looks beautiful and so very festive!! We are not decorated at all. Being MS Gimpy it is impossible for me to do right now. Talk about depressing.... I am so all about Christmas. This year will just be alittle different. I keep telling myself that it is okay....

It sure is cold here but not -2. We are guess are warm at 25.

I will be sending you a little package soon from the hat swap!!

Hugs dear friend,
