Can I put my Christmas tree up yet?

I know I just put my Fall decor up today but I can't help myself! I've got the itch and I want to scratch it!  I'm so excited for the holidays this year because I have a baby.  Sure I'll be swatting hands at the Thanksgiving table as they try to sneak Zoe some mashed potatoes and gravy, or pumpkin pie!  But it's going to be so much fun nonetheless!  Who knows.. I just might allow it.. don't get your hopes up yet.

But Christmas!  Who doesn't love Christmas?  The lovely festive smells.. a big Christmas tree with pretty ornaments that don't necessarily match each other, but they're "hundreds" of years old so it doesn't matter.  It adds character to the tree.  Presents under the tree.. It's A Wonderful Life being played over and over (in my house it is!).. homemade sugar cookies.. Bing Crosby played in the kitchen while the ham is being cooked.. and then a 5 month old getting into things before it's time.  I'm going to love it!

Don't worry, I didn't put a tree up and I'm not listening to Christmas music yet.  I make myself wait till the day after Thanksgiving.  Besides, even if I wanted to Paul wouldn't let me.  But I look forward to the day I can. :)

Until then I will enjoy my Fall leaves and creepy scarecrow that I bought at Walmart for $8 that occasionally turns around and stares into my living room while I fold my laundry.  No joke.

Cue scary scarecrow!

Taken from my window. True story.

Doesn't he give you the heebie jeebies?

Happy Fall!


  1. It would give me the heebie jeebies if it was dark outside and the curtains were open and out of the corner of your eye you see someone standing at your window looking in... Ooooooo... Shutter! He's cute in the daylight :o)

  2. Ha! That is so funny. We where at Kohls tonight and they had trees up. They even had music playing in thay area. Derek was complaining because he is a firm believer of waiting till after thanksgiving also! But I dragged him over to look and ended up walking out with the cutest tree skirt cover:-) for cheap! I am so in the Christmas mood. I am going to be starting my shopping in the next week or two.

  3. I love the pic. of Zoe! How cute!!!!
