The Start of Christmas

Piece by piece we are readying the house for Christmas.

One box pulled from the attic this weekend ended up scattered in mostly mangled clumps around their room. Little shinny trees, old ornaments, and worn stuffed holiday animals atop the shelf, lights above their bed.

Saturday morning we will pull down the other boxes and pick out a tree. Hang the lights. Finish up the details and make some felt garland and paper decorations. My, well thought, hard worked creations stemming from the pages of pinterest, mixed with their quirky, organically born tree contributions; of which, always end up better anyway.

Hard to believe the big countdown starts tomorrow.
