Last year, we bought an artificial tree and all the trimmings. We also got some decorations for the house from our parents and some other family members and friends. The day after Thanksgiving this year, I insisted we bust it all out. I am under doctor’s orders to not be on my feet–so I was Santa’s (Chris’s) helper doing all I could sitting down. I MAY have hung a few ornaments. Once the tree box was empty…something else was too. OUR HOUSE. Where were all the rest of our ornaments and decorations? Meh. After Chris searched our cars and storage a few times we realized we must have left them in storage in Rexburg. So our house isn’t very decorated. I did have a (as in one) Christmas placemat that I put on our dining room table and our tree has some bulbs and lights on it. Overall, I think it looks cold and bare. I do have a Christmas Scentsy candle and Josh Groban’s Noel cd that add some atmosphere. And I think with some snow on the ground, egg nog, and a Christmas sweater we may be able to make up for some other things lacking…afterall, our Christmas cheer is NOT one of those things.
