So not one, but TWO of our neighbors have their Christmas trees up already! You’ve already seen my feelings on REALLY early decorating, so I won’t reiterate, but HOLY COW, people, it’s NOVEMBER 10th!
Anyway, I took Sweet Son #1 to the craft store today to pick out something to make for the Grandparents for Christmas. Unfortunately, I forgot that the seven-year-old timeline is a bit different than that of the average adult. He thought that when we got home, we would complete it, and was sorely disappointed when I told him that Christmas was still more than a month and a half away, and we wouldn’t be completing it tonight.
In trying to get myself into the spirit, I did buy two very cute wall hangings. Hope to be less Scrooge-like soon.
