Getting ready to decorate for Christmas!

(Photo via Pinterest)

Last night after work John and I had dinner and then the unpacking commenced.  John decided he wanted to start putting the Christmas tree up.  We have an artificial tree, but this will probably be the last year we use it.     The tree is over 10' tall and is just so heavy!  John started with the bottom section of the tree but we decided it was just too full and big for the area we are putting up the tree.  So we decided to skip the bottom section and only use the next 4 sections.  That worked better!  It is really exciting for us to be decorating the new house for our first Christmas in our new house!!  I probably won't start until Friday night hanging up the Christmas/Winter pictures and getting out all the Christmas decorations we've collected over the 33 years we've been married.  It is so much fun-I love this time of year!!

Your first Christmas in your new home should be commemorated with parties and pictures!

Happy decorating!! We're going minimal this year in our little NYC abode..., but plenty of Christmas lights. Love the lights!!

Sherri said...

Maya, I love lights too! I probably won't have as many decorations up as usual either due to the fact we just moved. Who know though I might go crazy and pull everything out!!

Sorry to bother you again, just wondered if you had had a chance to remember the location of the cottage on the coast of Ireland.

How exciting for you, Sherri!
I love your holiday header.

I don't know which cottage photo you are talking about on my blog. What date on my blog did I have a photo of a cottage?

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
