decorating for christmas

Tis' the season. The reasons we are behind schedule.

Tis' the season.  The reasons we are behind schedule.

Going into the renovations, I had a few thoughts. One, it won’t take us very long.  Two, we will be done in time for Christmas.

Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s taking longer than expected (As always, right?) and I don’t think we will be done in time for Christmas. Unless of course a miracle happens.  Which is possible. I don’t doubt it.

How did we get off schedule?  A few things.

Ah, it’s Monday.

Can we have Thanksgiving every week?  I really enjoyed my time off.  It was the perfect combination of home projects, Christmas decor, family, food and relaxation.

Last Wednesday was my day to do all things Christmas.  If you missed my post about holiday storage, find it here.

If you were following me on Instagram (greywoodmama), you saw a few shots of my Christmas tree coming together.  Although our house is still under construction, I was not going to let that stop me from decorating for Christmas.
