Brian and I unleashed the Christmas closet on Saturday morning. I hit the ground running before the sun came up! Aside from getting our "live" tree, getting it in the house, in the tree stand and prepared for decorating...we have several tubs of wreaths, Santas, lights, a Christmas village, linens and two table top trees to put out for display. It's safe to say that almost every inch of our house is decorated for the next 4 weeks.
We finished decorating in the early evening, just in time for a glass of wine, a hearty bowl of homemade minestrone soup (thank you Brian) and a loaf of homemade bread...with plenty of time to admire our work!
