Tis the Season

Despite many people’s grumbling that Christmas comes too early, I really wanted start the holiday cheer as early as acceptable this year (after Thanksgiving of course). You see, Daryle is a Christmas baby which has caused him to share every birthday with family, friends and well—everyone else that celebrates Christmas. It can be hard to have a proper birthday celebration since our friends more than likely have their own plans and traditions. Luckily Daryle is the biggest Christmas fan that I have ever met. He meticulously hangs lights on our house and the trees in the front yard, together we decorate the house with Department 56’s north pole series, we listen to Christmas music at night (Bob Dylan Christmas anyone?), and cuddle by our crackling faux-fireplace. What a wonderful season!

Daryle is the master lightsmen.

It was really special to have my sister Claire with us. Together we hung ornaments and sipped homemade eggnog.

Ta-da! It’s Christmas time!

  1. Wow, that’s one really nice tree! I wanted to make mine blue and white this year, but alas, my parents and brother wanted to go the traditional multicolored way. Gotta love Christmas

  2. Great tree!

  3. Oh, the new floor in the sunroom looks great! So does the tree…I hope I make it over to see it in person

  4. Erin, let me know when I can come over to see your tree!
