O Christmas Tree – Part Two

17 Nov

We held the Funny Girl Family Caucus last night and came to some important conclusions.

 First, Sweet Pea feels that the tree, the house, and the outside lights are all equally important.  In her opinion, we cannot leave anything out.  (Thanks, Pea.  Mommy appreciates your flexibility!)

Second, I really do want a tree, but I don’t have time for two straight days of setting up the tree and the house.  Thankfully, the outside decor is Hubs’ domain. 

So here’s the decision as it stands today.  Please note, this may change at any moment because I’m the mom and I’m in charge.  (Sticks out tongue.)  We will decorate the house this Saturday – this includes stockings, Christmas Village (SOME not all), Christmas books and knick-knacks, nativities, etc.  Garland for the stairwell is currently under deliberation.  Hubs will do the outside while I do the inside.  Sweet Pea will probably go between the two of us pulling stuff out but not actually helping at all.   Because this is all VERY important, but not important enough to put down the legos and help!!

Then, when we return from Houston next Saturday, we will buy the tree.  That way it can “set” until Sunday afternoon, when we will decorate it.  Hubs will do the lights, I’ll do the ornaments.  Sweet Pea will likely pull a bunch of stuff out and then get bored before she hangs a single ornament.  Good times.  We will watch Christmas Vacation whilst we decorate; that’s our tradition.  NOTHING says Christmas like Clark Griswold.  Can I refill your egg nog for you?  Get you something to eat?  Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?  See what I mean?  That’s the Christmas spirit.

So that’s the plan.  I’ll be blogging it, so there will be pics, not to worry. 

Merry Merry!!!

    I might love you even more for that ‘leave you for dead’ line. Ah, the holidays. When is the airing of the grievances again?
