I am so thankful that my one true love (whatshisface) is as much in love with Christmas as I am. He even indulges me a second tree in the loft. Sunday, we decorated our primary tree, put up our stockings and had a little misty moment when we hung the stocking for Lucy. (Yes, she hasn't been born yet, but that doesn't mean she isn't getting presents.)
I moved our housekeeper appointment from the day after Thanksgiving to Monday so there was lots of incentive to get all the x-mas boxes put away. I know, it's silly to clean the house before the housekeeper comes but I've said it before I want her to clean the floors and bathrooms and not pick up our junk.
There was one very sad casualty, during the decking of our halls. The fun (and not at all cheap) ornament that my MIL (mother-in-law) purchased for us during the summer to commemorate our dinner at Teatro Zinzanni didn't even make it out of the packaging before it hit the floor and died a sad death. Poor thing died before it got to live on the tree for a single year. I felt really bad and made Jason tell his mom. I couldn't do it - the shame was too much.
