 Decorating today, or have already decorated for Christmas/Winter?

I don't like doing it, but we are going at it today until I have to leave for my hair appointment. I've had to rearrange my whole living room, not only to make room for the tree, but I have to bring my gas logs fireplace back home.

I had given it to my parents because of space issues. But I took the play pen down and our recliner broke (we decided we didn't need another one, so we didn't buy one) so now I have the space for it and my parents have less space than they did because my grandma moved in with them...lol.

 If we do the outside, it won't be this weekend. I don't deal with the outside at all, that's all on him. But he keeps wanting to buy these $150 blow up things that the animals around here tear up the first night they're put out and it makes me want to scream....lol.

We don't have the money to be buying those expensive (and tacky...hate me if you want, lol) things every. Single. Year.

We put up our tree last night. We'll finish decorating the rest of the house another day. Maybe Sunday

Not anytime in the next couple of days....too much cleaning to do and a sick kid.   If I get the cleaning done this weekend, I may drag out the tree early next week.

 We got our tree up this morning. We're putting the fireplace back in now. When we get it in, we'll put the porcelain houses on top of it and put the nativity scene on a shelf thing I have beside the TV.

Then we'll clean up...yay, lol. And get the boxes back in the attic and be done.
