Here it comes!!!

It's only 9 days until Christmas!!! That fact excites me to my toes and sends me into a panic attack at the same time! I've spent the entire morning looking for those "perfect" gifts that I still have to decide on. No divine inspiration as of yet, so I decided to take a break ( I feel much less on the edge of a nervous breakdown now!) and come and peacefully update here.

We LOVE Christmas at our house. Every single one of us. Christmas music started this year on August 25 as my husband announced, "Hey, only four months until Christmas!". We almost always get our tree and decorate the house the weekend after Thanksgiving. This year David took Lydia and Bethany on the tree hunt while I stayed home with napping Havilah and made homemade hot cocoa and muddy buddies.

They found the perfect one!!!

This year we decided to make a popcorn and cranberry garland. It was loads of fun to put together and an easy way for everyone to help.

Here's the finished product. Our tree would make any designer shudder, but we love it! The first presents went under it yesterday. Speaking of which, I'd better get back to work. I think my blood pressure rose a little at that last statement, but I'm sure I'll make it!

I really love your tree. I really like the garland idea. Merry Christmas! And don't stress out. Make a list and plus away at it. There is still plenty of time.

Good job, David, Lydia, and Bethany, picking out the tree! If you send me out to a forest to pick out a tree, I always come home with one that's way too tall for our house!

Merry Christmas, King family!
