Day 1023 - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
First - I didn't get a chance yesterday to say 'Happy 9 months old!' to Savannah.
The time has gone by so fast!
Second - meet our new Christmas tree!
I had to work a lot yesterday, and whenever I had a chance, I would also 'work' on the tree and setting out Christmas decorations. (Check out the mantlepiece for example).
For the first time, I have an artificial tree - and I am LOVING IT. This tree was given to us FREE by a lady at my work because I mentioned in a meeting I'd like to find someone who wants to get rid of one. She had recently purchased another Christmas tree, because the lights on this one don't work! (of course, I have lights of my own, since we always had a fresh tree).
This is a 7 foot artificial pine tree, it was effortless to put up, no search for 'just the right tree', no cutting, no trucking, no fighting with the tree stand, no watering, no balancing, no muss, no fuss.
This was the lowest stress tree decorating I have ever had! Thank heavens for that!
No, it doesn't smell like a fresh tree, but Charlie could cut me some pine boughs if I am dying for the fresh pine tree smell.
TTFN and I am SOOOO happy that the house is ready for Christmas! (I'm not ready, but the house is!)
Savi had her 9 mo check up today. She's 18lbs, 8 oz. Feels more like 50 lbs!! She'd doing great except for her sleeping...time to start weaning her from nursing to sleep. =(
The tree and room look beautiful, Karen. No tree for me--too much work for just one person. I have my Maine wreath and Christmas cards which will be fine--the City is all lit up and decorated too.
