Opposite Day (Cuz I Got Nuthin')

Today and yesterday were all grey and yucky. I went out to the bus stop yesterday afternoon and got rained on. It was raining this morning, too. I'm glad I took this picture to remind me how pretty the day can be. I don't know if it's the weather, or what, but I've been a little down lately. Even the nonstop Christmas carols on the radio have been able to get me in the spirit of the season. We're putting our tree up tonight (we'll probably do the ornaments tomorrow, but a bare tree with lights is one of the prettiest things). This ought to be a fun Christmas this year, though, since this is really the first Christmas that Anneliese will be able to get some of the things going on. Caleb has now declared it the best Christmas ever. All based on a half put together tree. Glad to see there aren't any high expectations for decorations around here, lol!

Gee honey, if I had known that shaving my goatee would depress you so much I wouldn't have done it... I hope you are enjoying the tree.

Saturday was to be "decorate the house day". We got as far as the bare tree, trains and part of the village. I am feeling so overwhelmed by the thought of the rest of the house (we decorate almost every room) that I could cry. Children don't understand what I project it really is - or at least that I have made it. I feel more emotionally ready for St. Patrick's day.

I don't even have that much to decorate with and it can drive me crazy. My friend does just one thing a day with her kids, whether it's frosting the windows or making a new ornament for the tree.
