the most wonderful time of the year
Now that Thanksgiving is over, we’ve turned our thoughts to Christmas! As Paul says, I live all year for the month of December. I just love Christmas time! We got a tree on Friday. We were going to go to a Christmas tree farm, but we decided we didn’t really want to drive up to North Georgia or farther north, and we just got a tree from a local church. (We like supporting local churches, anyways.) This year we got a frasier fir. I actually did a little bit of research about kinds of Christmas trees and found it interesting! I think this is the most fragrant tree we’ve had – the whole apartment smells wonderful! (As I said to Paul, we now have completely Joanna-proofed the apartment, if having two cats wasn’t enough… Sorry, Joanna! ;-))
The Christmas decorations have come out and we’re in the process of putting them up. Every year we’ve had Christmas in a different apartment (this is my 4th Christmas in Atlanta), and so we always have to rethink the decorations. Oh but I sure do love it! I’m going to participate in the Christmas Tour of Homes again this year, so you’ll see pictures then. :-)
Starting tomorrow, we’re also going to do the Jesse tree again. (The picture above is of our Jesse tree from last year.) I explained a bit about what a Jesse tree is here, and you can see all my ornaments here.
So how many of you have already started decorating for Christmas? Isn’t it FUN? :-) Oh and what do you think of my new Christmas look? :-)
