We will be thinking of you katie, you are not a thread killer, we appreciate all views, keeps things in perspective for me

katie, you shouldn't be alone at christmas.. no family member to visit?

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I've put up the outside lights( earlier this month when it

was 65 degrees and dry) but I won't turn them on until mid December. Inside I won't even start until mid December. I like to end one holiday before I start another.

I need to take the outside Halloween lights down before I can put up the Christmas ones.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Started on the outside yesterday. All of the second story lighting is in place, as is the ground floor, save for a couple of strands. Life sized Santa on his Motorcycle is also affixed to the roof. Plan on powering it up this weekend.

The inside is Mrs SK's domain, she'll likely put up the tree and other decorations this weekend.

Its official-Happy holidays everyone!!
Mess with me and you mess with the whole trailer park!!!

I know how you feel Katie. Christmas was Mom's favorite. The first year she was gone the rest of the family went way overboard on celebrating to make up for her missing contagious Christmas spirit. I know it will be hard for you but do something the two of you always did together as a testament to your time together here.

Me, I will put up the tree this Friday. I only really decorate one room and the front door. Sometimes I can get DH to put up outside lights. I might be able to convince him this year since we're hosting the family for Christmas.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Katie ... Buck's spirit is still with you. I feel my mother around me, especially during Christmas time which she loved.

Oh, by the way, we always put a stuffed Grinch on our mantle.
