I just can't do it,

can't decorate my house for the holidays or put up my Christmas tree, that is. I couldn't even change my blog template. I just can't. I was getting tired of my old look so I did change that, but it's still in the fall category! When my brother and I were growing up, we didn't get a tree, (or take it out of the box if we were on the mission field!) until the weekend of Thanksgiving. It's just what I'm used to and I suppose that's what I'll always do for my family also. I did unpack Brianna's little white tree and let her decorate it this past weekend, she had so much fun and it turned out so cute! It's so girly, with pink, purple, turquoise, and lime colored little ornaments all over it. I suppose she'll be using it as a night light in her bedroom for the next several months.

I'm certainly anxious for the holiday season to be here though, I love decorating for Christmas. I think the tree is my favorite part, I love sitting in the living room in the evening with the lights twinkling, it seems so magical.

But for now, the totes of Christmas decor will remain in that dusty, cobweb-filled basement of ours and the pumpkins will remain on the mantel.. Just wait though, come Thanksgiving weekend, watch out! This house will be SCREAMING Christmas spirit! :)

I'm the same way! I haven't taken down my stuff yet, but several people I know have already swung to Christmas mode. I plan to decorate after Thanksgiving.
