Oh, me, too! In fact, I spend most of Christmas moving ornaments and baubles from one spot on the tree to another, until it's just so. By which time, it's New Year and time to pack to whole thing away!

so Easter IS a tad late to take down the tree? all my neighbors pressure my hubs to make me take it down earlier. unless they want to do it themselves it' comes down when I get to it . . .

I do have one tiny tree up and all the Christmas knitting done so the rest is pretty much gravy - cards and a few more gifts - putting up the main tree - it seems a lot less stressful now the eldest child mostly watns cash and practical stuff. how much fun is a phone and mp? nothing like the Christmases of stepping over fantastical lego constructions all over the house and watching the dog chasing/being chased by remote control cars and such . . .

I hear grandbabies are a wonderful remedy for such malaise . . .

Good to see you around these parts again ORSE!

I'm assuming you're not actually expecting grandchildren to arrive at Christmas - or is that possible?

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

thank you! been swamped - but I do also have some delicious fan-fic to catch up on so there's always a silver lining!

no grandchildren on the horizon - just jealous - all my friends have them - I have been advised I am NOT allowed to steal one out of a shopping cart so I just have to be patient. Eldest child really should finish college and sowing the wild oats and all first. . . *sighs*

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

Hubby and I have some shopping to do this weekend, as he hasn't bought a damn thing for his family. Plus, I might get something else for my nephew; the phone decals he wanted look rather cheap now that they've arrived. Maybe I'll add a game or puzzle for him, as well.

Plus, I feel a need to decorate....

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

Managed to get all but one or two strands of the old lights working and put up in the front yard. Now all that's left is replacing some lights in a reindeer (am so tempted to change the lights in the nose to red) and see about finding a tree topper and some lighted garland for around the door and the front window.

In other news, all the gifts I've ordered for my family have arrived from Amazon. Now to buy some traditional red-and-green gift wrappings.

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

^ LOVE IT!

We've finished our shopping for the kids apart from a few things for their stockings. I love filling their stockings and have a lot of fun with them. I'm still waiting for one item to show up from Amazon--TAS DVDs--to show up and my shopping for my husband is done. The two of us usually buy each other things we'd both enjoy, so there's no malicious alterior motive going on. Really.

Awww!


I didn't put any of my Trek ornaments up this year; trying to change it up a bit. We do, however, have the Trek Wreath on the door, that I made ages and ages ago. I was single, had a lot of cheap collectibles and glue gun; this was the result:


Not a great picture; you can't really see the blue stars on the wreath very well, but it's more than a few years old now.

Surprisingly enough, hubby won't let me replace it. He really likes it.

^Cute! I did a Trek wreath one year- I strung lights around it and hooked up the Hallmark ornaments.
