Whooo, what a busy day it was today! Did my grocery shopping this morning and managed to get a bit of Christmas shopping done too. Got home and got everything put away, then decided to enlist hubby's help on getting a few decorations put up outside. In the process of that we got our back room cleaned up a bit and finally got the Halloween decorations put away into the large tote we'd bought a while ago. Until now, the zombies and things we'd had outside had just been laying in a pile in the messy room.
So anyway, got the room cleaned up a bit and dug out the Christmas things we had in there. I'd figured just those few things would be hung up on the porch and that would be it. Nope, hubby went down to the garage and hauled out the mini trees he likes to set out outside. He decided he wanted more this year so off to Menards we went. They didn't have the same type of trees this year but we did manage to find some close enough to those and bought several. We also bought a really pretty lighted garland for the porch, and some lighted things for the windows.
Quickie pic of the porch. Wooden sleigh hanging under the light on the left, rather plain wreath on the right. The new garland is on the side rail on the right, although it looks almost like another wreath in this picture. Small garden flag there in the lower right. And back up on the porch, on the left is an elf and reindeer on the little table.
You might have to click on the pic to make it larger to see, but the new mini trees are the six white flocked ones from center across to the right. The older green ones come down the left. There is actually one more just out off the edge of the picture. There are twelve total. And in the four downstairs windows are lighted things . . .
Not a very good pic, I know. I just dashed out when it got dark to see how it all looked and snapped this quick pic on my phone.
When we got that all done the work moved inside. Well, MY work did. Hubby called it a day and worked on the second of our Christmas puzzles while I hauled all of boxes of decorations out again and redecorated. The first time, last weekend, I'd gone extremely minimal. It bothered me all week. So today I put out almost all of the decorations. I like it much better now. I'm a little bummed though because I can't find one of my nativity sets. I'm wondering if it was sacrificed in my great clutter purge of last year.
I will try to get holiday decor pics tomorrow. It was too cloudy and dark today, and it was well into evening anyway by the time I was done. Hopefully we have some sunshine tomorrow. I also have to take a ton of bloggy pics because a few of my Black Friday orders came today. *excited*
I will show you the puzzle that hubby finished . . .
. . . and then I will head off to read before bed.
Do you decorate outside?
Do you have your decorating done?
