I have barely cleaned up after Thanksgiving. I always feel pressured to get my shopping done before Dec. 1 as I hate the crowded stores, so I did all my shopping (well most) online and decorated less than usual.
I don’t like clutter so I put out less and less each year it seems. This is the only time of year that I pull out the hand painted and needle pointed Christmas stockings.
I still have treats to bake and I am expecting all 7 children home for the holiday! I might even try and take a photo and send out a late holiday card!
