...and all through the house, not a creature was stirring except me... taking pictures for my blog! I'm very excited for Christmas this year as this will be the first year that we will be hosting Christmas at our house. We've spent the entire day today cooking & prepping the food, cleaning the house, and tweaking the decorations. I really hope everyone has a good time tomorrow! Here are some pics from my house... we're exceptionally proud of our garage sale score of an old "happy holidays" wooden cut out (missing the "s" though). It was the perfect mantle piece for us!
Of course, to get all this decorating done, you need a lot of help... how could I have done it all without help from Poppy the Christmas elf? At 13 years old, she was patiently posing for this picture, but if she could talk, she would be channeling a Lethal Weapon style Danny Glover, "I'm getting too old for this s#!$"
