Traditionally the Christmas season officially starts the day after Thanksgiving.Although stores start decorating in October but here in our household we decorate the day after Thanksgiving!!!!
I was a little worried about where I would put the "trees". Our living room has turned into a work out room( hubby's huge weight set and now I added a stair master machine) and I have one of the Victorian sofas in the corner.It is not a very big room so I had to put my thinking cap on. Hubby suggested I move the sofa into our parlor room . I thought that was a good idea so the boys and I just pushed the sofa out of the way and set up the tree in the corner(where sofa usually is). This is a very narrow tree so after the boys and I finished decorating we thought we would just put the sofa in front of it. It worked out great for two reasons,it blocks the tree from our big dog and we didn't have to rearrange the parlor room!!!!!! Now "my favorite" tree is my baby pink tree.Last year I put it on top of a dresser that is in our living room but this year since our front porch actually looks cute I thought I would put it there.Luckily it was a warmer day so I didn't freeze decorating it.Unfortunately the lights that are on the tree do not work so I am going to buy a few strands of pink lights for it this weekend.Now the last mini tree is a tinsel lavender /pink and I found a spot in the kitchen for it!!!!! So now I am worn out from all this decorating!!!!! I still need a wreath for our front door and maybe some other little things but for now it looks like a Christmas Wonderland!!!!
