O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, you smell like dog and cat pee.
Ahem, sorry, clearly I have not matured a whole lot since I turned 10... or maybe we can just notch it up to the silly season and the fact that I live with four males who think that anything involving pee, poo, farts or bums is about as funny as me watching me run for the phone... which is apparently VERY funny given I cannot run to save my life.
So I am still here, all be it like you guys - I am knee high into Christmas festivities and enjoying the time with my special people.
With only a week until Christmas, I am only just starting to feel a little bit of the Christmas spirit creeping. It's been slow coming on this year and I have no idea why really.
Likely its because I have been too busy to stop and enjoy it which is such a huge waste of a good Christmas season given I probably only have a couple of years left where the kids are willing to embrace Christmas in all it's cheesy glory.
I spent last night Christmas shopping an then I cam home and collapsed into bed and watched corny American and Canadian Christmas movies complete with snow and fairy lights and soppy endings and that totally did the trick, cause I'm feeling much jollier today.
Every year I pour over pictures on the internet of beautifully decorated Christmas trees. Of course I'd like to tell you I am researching ideas for my own tree, but you me and my kids all know that the only way I am ever going to get a tree looking as beautiful as any of these is when the dogs turn up their toes and the kids move out.
That's OK though, cause that's what we have Pinterest for - to drool over other people's gorgeousness.
Here's some of the stunning Christmas trees that have really had my tinsel in a twist.
Hope you guys are all doing well.
Are you ready for Christmas?
Are you feeling Jolly or have you been slow off the mark too?
