fa la la la la

It is so amazing how time flies. Christmas will be here in one weeks' time!! How are we supposed to do all the holiday preparations in time?

Every year I vow to start earlier with the gift finding, sending of cards (I did them early this year) baking, decorating, etc. etc. and somehow I end of scrambling like mad until the last minute, wrapping gifts at 1 pm, bleary-eyed watching Scrooge dance around his room and then doing a head stand in a chair..."I must stand on my head, I must stand on my head!!!!"

I've done most of the decorating I guess. The tree is up and trimmed, the cards are displayed, the outside lights are strung up, stockings for the fur babies are on the mantel and I've sent a parcel to my little nephews in Boston. I still haven't done any baking yet, or finished decking out the halls. I need to up my caffeine intake me thinks.

Isn't this the most Christmasy house?? If our neighbours house is ever up for sale, I'm going pounce on it!! I'll have to get a photo of it at night with the lights for my next post.

What a lovely neighborhood you live in. The homes out past the pretty bird in the window, and your neighbors home are very beautiful.
