Life is busy. And the Christmas season should be fun and low-stress. So in order to survive the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and the swirl of the festive season, I started my Christmas decorating right after Remembrance Day during the middle of November. I know, some would find that too early, but I really wanted to make sure that I enjoyed the process, not just the product.
So here we are, with the arrival of December and I am happy to say that most of my Christmas "animation" is displayed for all to see. I have a few things I may tweak this coming weekend, but overall I am pleased with what I see!
Now could I interest you in a quick viewing? I've taken a handful of pictures and would love to give you a glimpse into our Christmas-sy world.
(I'll keep the text to a minimum 'cause Christmas cuteness can speak for itself!)

And that is just HALF of what is decorating our house right now!!
I'll share a bit more on the weekend, but before that I hope to share a holiday recipe that has got my family all tied in sugary sweet knots this holiday season.
How is your decorating going?
Do you have a colour theme or a particular style you love?
I hope you are all finding joy in this new month!
24 sleeps until Christmas!!
