All of the stores have been bursting with Christmas decorations since the day after Halloween. Up until this past weekend our house looked very unfestive. As I pulled out my small box of Christmas decorations, I was thinking that they were woefully inadequate, and that a trip to the holiday section at Target was needed.
The boys were both sick this weekend, and a trip to the store was not possible, so instead I began hunting though closets and boxes. I rounded up an old wreath, some red buckets, an old window Jess had given me, and with a little work (and some greenery from my mother-in-law’s yard), they started to look very festive!
Don’t misunderstand me, I like new things, but it was fun to take old things and make them new again.
He’s been through a lot these last several days. Bless his heart. He’s had a cold, been breaking in new teeth, and had the stomach flu. It’s no wonder he fell asleep after only being in his crib for a few minutes.
Hoping we are all healthy for our annual trip to Pajaro this weekend.
