Well, it only took 20 bins, 14 hours over the course of 2 Days, and one last minute run to Michael’s Craft Store and Lowe’s Home Goods, but our home is officially decorated for the holidays.
As is the case each year, I ask myself why we do this every year, as I’m doing it. It’s so much work and effort. But then, when it’s all finished, I remember why we do it. While I dislike the decorating part, I love the decorated part.
And, while in some homes, seeing Santa at the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is the official start of the Christmas holiday, at Breen Acres, it’s placing the Christmas Giraffes by the tree that kicks off the season for us.
