The "tree" is up (we still use the artificial tree from my husband's childhood classroom) and the house is mostly decorated. I might have preferred to leave the dregs of November to fall, but I know that if we don't get the tree done this weekend, we won't get it done in time for early December. It's very nice and cozy, but please remind me to rearrange the living room this summer so that we can fit things differently next Advent Season. My old man is playing his very eclectic mix of holiday tunes (think Ringo) and the girls are happy. A nice Christmas House.
Wishing you and yours a cozy start to the holiday season.
