Festivities and TUSAL

The day after Thanksgiving is usually when we put up the Christmas tree. It's been a hectic year for me and I'm generally feeling tired. As a result, I have been toying with the idea of not putting up the trees this year... but sure enough, on Black Friday, while most people are out shopping the sales, up they went. :D

I decided to simplify a little though, and only put up our yearly ornaments and some of my favorites. The outside tree was situated by the front door this year, and I added garlands on it to match ones on the gate.


Christmas in S. Florida - Christmas Tree and a flamingo. LOL!

Our Little Drummer Boy that's handmade in Germany.

The meaning of Christmas. :)

I'm a couple of days late with my TUSAL post. If you haven't joined in for next year, head on over to Daffycat's blog and SIGN UP!! :D

Ooooh!! I love your tree! So coordinated and sparkly :D Love the flamingo hanging out above your outdoor tree. It's perfect!! As for the meaning of Christmas, I wish more people remembered that and not all the crazy running around buying presents part. This is what we celebrate in my family. Although a gift or two is nice too :D

HUGSSSSSSSSSSS

PS, when I get some photos back from the girls, I'll send you one of the dress!!

Beautiful decorations. My husband did our outside lights yesterday. We are putting up the tree next weekend. I came down with a head cold and just didn't feel like it yesterday.

Lovely trees and ornaments.My tree goes up on the 1st december, and not a day sooner.Although i only ever seem to put up a tree and thats about it.Put the fake snow stuff on the windows last year, and i was still finding smears of it in june.It was a nightmare to come off.

It seems I'm doomed to live Christmas vicariously this year! I'm so glad you decided to decorate; Christmas decorations always look so cheerful (after Thanksgiving)! Do y'all decorate palm trees in Southern Florida like they do in Hawaii? ;)
