I will put ours up in about two weeks.  Will put the out side light out next week before it get very cold outside.  That way I don't have to use gloves.

Last year Toy was so angry with herself, she couldn't remember where she left the lights from the year before.

Almost finished except for putting the tree up..  Keeping hoping that the weather will reflect Christmas time instead of the 70deg we are having this week.  Geeze,  folks are walking around in shorts.  We had snow on Christmas two years ago. 

Elfie, have you started baking fruitcakes yet?  Have you ever heard of or baked a Japanese fruitcake?  Yummie!    My favorite food at Christmas is fruit salad.

My holiday dinner is this coming Sat,8th.  It's the only time that no one will be working this year.  I am thankful that all are working and well.  What more could anyone hope for?

Hope everyone here has a joyous holiday.

I've dragged my feet as long as possible. Today's the day. There's no place to run, and no place to hide.

Ho Ho Ho :rolleyes:
