Christmas has Begun! by James Deming
|Well, it's the day after Thanksgiving, and the Christmas season has begun. Yesterday afternoon Courtney and I dug the Christmas goodies out of the attic, rearranged the living room, and put up our tree. Today Courtney is baking her first ever batch of Gingerbread men while I worked on the lights outside. We do not have an extension ladder, so I had to try to put lights on the house with a step ladder. No small feat with the large Azalea bushes infront of our house. I had Courtney hold the ladder and only fell into the bushes once, but the lights are up!
I braved walmart to buy some garland to wrap around our porch, and suprisingly it was not that busy at 1pm. I guess all the die hard shoppers had already worn themselves out. I didn't even have to wait in line to check out which is odd since it usually takes me 30 minutes to check out at Wal-Mart on a random Tuesday.
I also puchased my first Christmas gift online this morning.
Time to go clean up some of the messes I made today, I hope everyone enjoys the season like I do!
