decking the halls

We spent Saturday rearranging the furniture and putting up the Christmas tree. It's always a major, messy production. But this year was much easier since it's the second year with our artificial, pre-lit tree.

JT didn't actually help much with the decorating. Although, on the plus side he also hasn't been too destructive since we got it finished.

He took a THREE hour nap, even through all the noise of furniture-moving and cleaning. We really liked how pretty his hair looked when he woke up.

And here we have it... Christmas at our house.

What do you think of the furniture arrangement? I think it's cozy and more conversational. It's screaming for a fire in the fireplace. I need to get rid of a chair that we just don't need and some other clutter. I also still need to come up with a shelf storage solution to get stuff off the floor and to be better organized. AND we also want to replace the tv with a flat screen. But I think I like it this way. We'll see how it works for us after Christmas before I make it permanent.

How is Christmas coming along at your house?

It is beautiful Stacy and I love JT's hair! Give him a big hug for me. I was looking at pictures from our visit with you last night. Our boys sure have changed in 5 months! Lynn
