It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Weird, I signed in to my blog and was visitor 2222--don't know why, but it struck me as a little eerie--LOL. Anyway, I say BEGINNING to look like Christmas because I just didn't get very far in my Christmas decorating yesterday. We got home from shopping (yes I joined Mike at 9) around 2. Wait, I should re-phrase that. I got home at 2. We were at Kohl's and the line was wrapped clear around the store, so Mike gave up and brought the boys home. I waited in line for just under an hour and a half. The really sad part? I got a couple gifts, but most of it was for me--hee hee!

Then, when I got home, I had good intentions. We set up 2 of our 3 trees (haven't figured out where the third one is going to go yet). Yes, I am a Christmas freak. We probably have over a dozen big Rubbermaid containers of Christmas decorations. They take up one whole side of our garage. Anyway, I brought in half the boxes because the rest are too high for me to reach. Unfortunately, the boxes I brought in were all the gift wrap and kitchen goodies, a few ornaments and the angels for the tree tops. The boxes still out there have the rest of the ornaments and the majority of decorations.

So what happened? Why didn't we finish? Well...yesterday while at Costco, we purchased our family CHRISTMAS GIFT--a Nintendo Wii. Mike couldn't wait to set it up, so needless to say, we spent the rest of the evening playing. Sadly, the kids bowled with us for a while then got bored. Mike said maybe we should take it back since they didn't care and buy something more responsible, like the new bed we really NEED. I said, "No way! We'll just get a few more games that are kid-oriented!" Like I'm going to give it up now--LOL!

Hopefully, we'll finish decorating today. I also want to finish up all the handmade gifts, so I don't have to stress about those closer to Christmas. It's safe to say, I should get a lot done today--my shoulder hurts too bad from playing baseball last night, that I don't think I'm going to go near the darn Wii today. Man, I must be out of shape.

THREE Christmas trees?!! - you are Christmas-crazed! I am still dreading just putting up the one LOL! We just got a nintendo Wii also and it sure is addicting. I had so much to do around the house this weekend, but instead of getting the chores done, we played the wii instead. I am in love with the Tennis game (which also made me quite sore - what a great workout!)

Just stopping by to say Hi and that I am enjoying reading your blog! Bye for now!

Wow, three trees!! I'd love to be able to do that but our place is too small :D That and I still don't dare a full sized tree with my rambunctious girls!! They'd probably topple it trying to climb it or just to get to the angel on top (they LOVE angels)! We got the xbox 360 for the family Christmas present (more for my hubby and me than the girls, they aren't too interested in playing games yet but they love watching Lego Star Wars!!) Hope your Christmas shopping goes well! Love your blog and can't wait til you get a chance to add more artwork!
