Getting into the Christmas Spirit is like jumping rope this year. I start to decorate then I get pulled another direction. I got some of the decorations out of the attic but that was as far as it went. I read all the blogs and see the decorating being done. Momentarily I am inspired and as momentarily I am uninspired. Trying to jump into Christmas is difficult this year. If I could tie bells and ribbons on my chickens, they would run around and be my decorations.

Take aren't alone:) Our tradition is that my kids and grandkids come and decorate the tree and outside and I cook dinner. One whole row of the tree light won't work and now one section of the outside lights have quit working....guess they are old like me:)

I scared myself this morning when I realized Christmas is only about three weeks away. I am not in the Christmas spirit at all this year.

HA! That, I'd like to see. I do think you'd get very tired of the bells.

U just discribed exactly who I feel this year. Maybe because we are just finishing up the bathroom renovations, or xmas just snuck up on me..whoknows, I just don't feel like it!..the idea of doing the tree is exhausting to me lol. I do plan to stick a bow on the bathroom door downstairs though...its our xmas present to ourselves...after doing that we cant afford any other presents to eachother and thats OK!

I hear ya!! I have had my tree sitting in the living room for a week now, naked as a jay bird. I HATE putting the lights on the tree, I love it when it is done, just hate to do it!

Bah Humbug!

I jumped the gun this year. My son and I got out the holiday decor boxes and decorated the house and the trees TWO days BEFORE Thanksgiving!!!
I LOVE this time of year!!
It goes by WAY too quickly for me.
Holiday chickens would be great!!!
