Christmas Decorating

     Since our daughter's family will be coming for Thanksgiving and not Christmas, and therefore I will be having lots of people here for Thanksgiving dinner, I decided to do my Christmas decorating early.  That's why I haven't had much time to write this week.  I have been dragging out all my decorations, sorting through them, throwing away some and looking for new.  I'm almost through except for the tree.
     We've always purchased a real tree to decorate for Christmas so I called a tree seller who said they are expecting their trees to arrive next Tuesday.  I thought if I could get everything else decorated now, then hopefully I would have time to do the tree on Wednesday before everyone comes for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday.  I may have trouble accomplishing that while preparing for guests, and cooking some things ahead, but I'm going to try.
     At least the rest of the house will look festive--even if it is decorated for the wrong holiday.
     Here is a picture of the main area I've done so far.  I'm beginning to feel encouraged about the results.
