Are you all having as much fun with this as I am? At times this challenge has felt like yet one more thing that I need to do each day. Overall, though, it’s helping me stay present during this fast moving holiday season. Our Advent calendar has filled up fast.
Our family decorates post-Thanksgiving, flexible anytime after turkey. We are trying hard to keep the girls focused on each holiday in order. This is getting harder each year.
I don’t think we go overboard with our decorations, just enough. And after being out of the house for last Christmas, our decorations feel right on.
One thing that is steadily increasing is our Star Wars themed decorations. I’m not just pointing these out because of the new movie. We’ve been amassing ornaments and such for about 12 years now.
This years’ exciting addition is the Death Star tree topper. For those of you who don’t know, it plays the beginning seconds of the theme song as well as the beginning of the Galactic Empire theme. And before any conjecture starts, let me be clear that this tree star came home with Wife after she conspired with a co-worker – not my doing.
Again, it’s so nice being back in our home for the holidays. And the decorations go well with all of the woodwork and renovation in the house. Yet one more thing in our lives that stokes my gtatitude.
