well, we did get the Christmas tree up. And it came lit. But the two garlands we had did not go far. So today at Target, I got a few wooden garlands with hearts and a box of foam gingerbread looking oriments for the kids to paint with glitter pens. They really enjoyed that. Ewie had glitter all over his pants. So now, about 1/2 of the tree is decorated, all of the garlands were strung one in one corner, and in the other is all 30 or so of the foam gingerbreads.
And I stopped at the local florsist and bought a Christmas Wreath that now adorns our door and a beautiful ivy, that needed me. The ivy will hang in my office.
so that is how Christmas is progressing at my house- but maby perhaps Christmas means a bit more.
