Saturday Cool

It's might cold for Sheridan, Arkansas. Or at least I think it is. Brrr. The Christmas shopping frenzy has begun at Walmart. I arose early to beat the crowd. Got there at around 8:00 a.m. and by 9:00, you could hardly get out of the parking lot. Oh my, I really don't like the holiday shopping frenzy. That is not cool to me. Sooo, I usually have my shopping done early. Right now, I only like one or two more things and I'll be done!!!

Plans for Christmas were up in the air for a while and it had me a bit frustrated. Fortunately, it's all been worked out and I'm cool. We are at peace about the gatherings now.

There is a local decorative shop here in town that just blows me away. I made a visit the other day and the Christmas trees in there made my chin hit the floor. And it made me a little saddened by my little tree at home. I went away, resolved to do it up BIG next year. But, I decided I can make a few small changes this year, as soon as I get paid again. *wink* And I will be better satisfied. SR has been good to help me do some outside decorating too, which is unusual. It's been too cool for me to get out there and finish what I want to do, but hopefully, it will warm up enough this afternoon that I can stand it. I'm a whimp when it comes to cold weather. I freeze to death all winter long. Just ask LeLe.

This photo gave me a big laugh, so enjoy...............

Matt and I went to a shop dedicated to Christmas decor in our town, and the trees in that shop made my tree look worse than Charlie Brown's! Oh well.

I'm ashamed to say that I haven't even started my Christmas shopping. Our Christmas plans have been up in the air and that's caused me to procrastinate (which I rarely do) Christmas shopping.

I know, I'm addicted to Christmas decorating. I have always wanted 2 trees. One for the sentimental ornaments and one for the "swanky decorative theme." I haven't gotten the swanky one yet. I have an extra's just getting past the laziness and little voice in my head that keeps telling me, "That's just more you'll have to pack up after Christmas." About that store...I've GOT to get over there. I keep hearing awesome things about it!

That picture cracks me up. BTW, my tree STILL isn't up.

R and I have a dorky tree. Its so us though and I try not to care when I see the fancy trees in the stores. Makes me want stuff to stick in the top every time, but I love our star.
My friend Jenny said her husband Matt thought her feathers and sparkly sticks looked like the mothership had landed on top of their tree. LOL!
