It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Tonight we put up the Christmas tree.
This year was Leah's turn to put the star on the tree. We usually wait till the first of December before we put up the tree and all the decorations. This year we thought bugger it and began the festive season early. Life's too short to wait for the fun times.

I was just thinking about putting mine up, Christmas comes around to quick for me.
I have done most of my xmas shopping, and have got all the xmas food, have wrapped all of the presents gets harder each year, we have decided to cut down this year.

I was going to put my tree up yesterday but got called around to help at the WATERGARDEN so that was the end of that. Can't see me getting it up until at least Thursday now.
Oh well.....never mind.....I really do LOVE decorating the whole house.I even take the decorating out into the back garden around our verandah.I stick Christmas signs and gnomes in my garden......I LOVE IT!

uncle pete cant wait to get the lights up he is the big kid in our family xxxx

Dad is just dying to get out side to put all of our lights up.
Each year it takes him longer as each year he buys more and more.
He is also the big kid in our family.
Will put up the tree in the next few weeks, I like putting it up, but it takes up so much room.
Sad today it is my mums birthday, and have been thinking of her all day.
What I would not give to hug her, tell her all the things I should have said but did not say, so if you have anything to say to your loved ones, tell them all the time as life is so short.
she has so much zest for life, always on the go and full of life we had some good times together.
We would go down town together and shop, and go to the movies and laugh all the way home, we were more like sisters than mother and daughter.
Miss her so much.
