'Tis the Season

You may or may not already know this about me, but Christmas is my FAVORITE time of year! I love decorating the house and getting out all my Snowmen themed items, of course you HAVE to know that I would have a theme right?! I got a small tree this year from my mom that I am going to put in the kitchen and decorate with red ornaments and green ribbon to match my kitchen. I'm thinking of putting everything up within the next few days/week. I know its not even Thanksgiving yet but the longer my decorations are out, the more we get to enjoy them =)

I have been using the same ornaments on our tree for the past 7 years so I think its time for some new ones, I just can't decide what color I want for our main tree? I did however get some funky ribbon to put on the tree that I'm super excited about! I also want to get the girls a small pink tree to share and decorate themselves so that's on the agenda for the next few days as well. I have the spot all cleared in our family room for the Christmas tree, we just need to put it up. Our goal is to hang the outside lights this weekend if my husband would stop picking up leaves for one stinkin' day it doesn't rain.

How early do you decorate for Christmas? I've had lots of people tell me I'm decorating too early and its 'customary' to wait until the day after Thanksgiving, but its MY house and MY decorations so there ;) Our family loves Christmas so this just gives us a few extra weeks to enjoy them. Plus Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away!

I also have to brag on my hubby real quick because I just adore that he is so darn handy! He whipped me up a ribbon holder this weekend after hearing me complain about my ribbon living in a Hobby Lobby bag, and that I was tired of digging through the bag to find one roll of ribbon. Here is the finished product. He asked if I wanted him to stain it and make it look nice, but I think it looks great just how it is! Thanks again babe!
