Getting in the Spirit

Ahhh...the thought of decorating my house for Christmas after all I have been doing is decorating my house in general really made me want to abandon the whole thing.  I really thought we would just put up the tree and be done.  But today I started to putter.  That is what we call it in our family, puttering.  When you sorta get busy with fixing up something here and then there.  Before I knew it, I was hanging stockings, laying greens on shelves and filling jars with candy canes.

I got hit with the bug.  Now it feels like Christmas.  It is super fun to watch the kids during this time.  Nathan got to set up his old-fashioned about happy.  I pretty much let the kids decorate the entire tree this year.  It is funny how many ornaments are in the front and on the middle of the tree!

It should help that I have had this beauty land on my doorstep:

It is beautiful...the December kit from the Nook!  I have made four layouts.  Well, I have finished two and two need little details.  I have been too lazy to get the job done.  Does that ever happen to you?

Here is a layout that I did complete!

I think this layout is cuter in person.  I can't seem to photograph anything...between the winter wind and the fact that we only have a few hours of sunlight and I work during those hours are causing trouble!

Nathan loves to collect the toy catalogs and just browse.  He has a whole stash and has had no problem getting into the spirit!

I am there with him now!
