Welcome to Scroogeville

I've been informed that I may as well be Ebeneezer Scrooge. My children told me this. Why? Because when they were outside yesterday they noticed that we are the only house without any Christmas decorations or a tree up yet. They went down the block looking at all the houses and came back and said that "Eveeerryone has one but us" (just insert your favorite whine here).

And so the torture has begun. When are we going to put our tree up, what about the lights on the house? It's not that I don't put up our decorations early every year, I do. But this year I decided not to do it the weekend over Thanksgiving. Mainly because it would give me one less week of Baby A. pulling on the tree. I am now regretting it. The kids have been to the store with me and know I have new decorations, so they want them up NOW! I keep telling them to be patient we will do it this weekend but patience and my children don't get along very well.

Thanks for visiting my blog today :)

I know exactly what you mean about kids and decorations. My 17 year old daughter is merciless when it comes to decorating. She keeps me on the ball!

I'm just not in the mood much yet this year - but we did put up the tree and the inside decorations - maybe outside lights this weekend. Good luck with yours. See ya.

I guess you know how much they appreciate you decorating! I hope they can make it until you get everything up! :)

Don't feel too bad. Mine are not up yet either. I usually wait until a week into December. This year I am planning on putting them up on December 1st. I just don't like jummping from one holiday to another. That is why I still have Happy Thanksgiving on my blog. When my house is decorated, then I will put my Christmas blog up. :)

My kids too are seeing everyone elses decorations. But I don't feel on bit bad, that our aren't up yet.
