Deck the Halls

It’s beginning to feel a lot like…Thanksgiving? I realize it is a tad bit early, but I officially have my first Christmas decoration up. I just couldn't help myself! It’s fun to have a new house to decorate and besides I just love this time of year.

Our last house didn't have stairs, so this past weekend I went on a hunt for garland to go on the banister. And there was much success – thank you Homegoods. Immediately when I got home mom and I got to work putting it up and it definitely makes it feel like the holidays are here. (Christmas music may have been played. I wish I was kidding.)

Abra Kadabra! -- Disappearing Wires Act

Happy Monday, everyone!! This weekend was a very successful “getting things done” weekend.  My mom and dad came up and helped us start to build the bookcases on either side of the fireplace. I was hoping to get them both done because I am so ready for that space to be complete (finishing a room would feel so good), but unfortunately it just didn't happen. However, the boys were able to get the one built that hides all those stupid wires – I mean honestly how many wires does it take for a TV to work; apparently a lot.
