And It's Christmas

It's November and to me that means it's Christmas. I know. I know what you're thinking. This girl is crazy. We haven't even celebrated Thanksgiving yet. Well hear me out before you call me crazy.

We've all been seeing Christmas items invade the stores for weeks now. In July, Hobby Lobby dedicated isle after isle to Christmas décor. Home Depot, Target, Walmart, every store started slowly filling up their isles with Christmas items before we could even celebrate Halloween. The candy isle would be on one side and the Santa Claus dressed pig for the yard would be on the next. It seems like the last few years mainly, the last two that stores start prepping everyone for the holidays much faster than before. I know a lot of people say, respect the turkey. And I do, I really do. I just feel what goes better with a Thanksgiving turkey than a Christmas tree in the background for photos?!

So that's why on November 1st I busted out the decorations and started making my house into a winter wonderland. I was able to get up one tree and my living room decorations. I've still got two other trees to get up and a smaller one for the bedroom. The first tree I put up was my white candy tree! I've had this tree a few years now and I always love seeing the different ornaments come out of the box as I decorate it.

So it's November and we haven't celebrated Thanksgiving and I've already got my a tree up! I love this time of the year and it makes me happy to have my house decorated. I know some may think I'm a little crazy but I enjoy them.

Expect tons of photos detailing the trees! And yes... that is Tesco the cat making an appearance under the tree. He's found himself a new napping spot.

My husband will not let me put the tree up until Black Friday. Which, it's kind of become a thing with the kids' too. So usually I shop Thanksgiving night/Black Friday morning, nap, and then we have left overs for dinner. After dinner the kids get their new jammies (that I bought that morning), we pop in a Christmas cartoon and decorate together. Which is a fun routine. But I tell you- I might sneak out other Christmas decor when he's not home... ha!
