Jodi is usually the one to put up the Christmas decorations, typically I get the tree, put it up and Voila! I'm done! She is in Italy with her sister, they are visiting her sisters son who is a professional soccer player in Croatia.
Recent Email, please decorate while I am gone, grabbed the kids, went downstairs and GEEZ! There's 10 boxes of XXXX! 5 little Christmas trees that light up, play a song, or take out the garbage. Enough lights to match Clark Griswold's home in Christmas vacation movie. 4 santa hats, 3 tree toppers, 2 front door wreaths and a partridge in a pear tree.
Thinking back, many folks did not know what to buy us for the Holiday, I've figured it out, they are ALL are buying us Christmas stuff. Jodi can go 2 weeks without wearing the same Christmas sweater twice.
You just can't throw away Christmas stuff, seems sacrilegious to me. Even when we have enough ornaments for 4 trees, maybe I can regift some of this stuff? Just kidding, Happy Holidays!
