…and that is pretty much the fastest you’ll ever watch the movie elf! haha!
when we first bought this house, i pictured two things: 1. a christmas tree in the corner that was obviously completely meant to have a permanent christmas tree in it. and 2. me & stevo sitting on the sofa all cozily starting friends from the beginning all over again.
we haven’t done the second one yet, [we’ve been watching the office, but i think i’m ready for friends soon!] BUT!!! as of last sunday, our christmas tree! is! UP!!!
…paused on some favorites! i think it’s hilarious how much a time-lapse can breeze through… dropped ornaments, toddler meltdowns, photo poses, steven on the floor adjusting the leaning tree… but spotting the cats as they bounce around is my fav!! and surprisingly, they have yet to terrorize the tree?! yet another christmas miracle!! well… so far. 😉
anyway, our tradition of decorating the weekend after thanksgiving has officially moved to the weekend before thanksgiving… and i just have to say, it’s been a pretty terrific decision! the holidays always go by too quickly, don’t they?! i mean, i can’t say right now that i feeeeel like it’s actually the holidays yet, but i’m sure inviting the sparkles and merriment to come our way.
i still have a bunch to sort through and organize and decorate, but it feels so good to have that big, happy tree up and glowing!! and… i really mean this: a real tree smells like absolute heaven… but my vote is with the pre-lit for liiiiife! game. changer. love our fakey so much.
