Knee Deep.... boxes of FALL decor to finish packing up...
and CHRISTMAS boxes of STUFF to put out!

I don't usually decorate for Christmas this early, waiting until after Thanksgiving. But Josh was down Saturday, and I needed the extra manpower to bring in the trees and boxes of STUFF...lots of STUFF. I've been forbidden to buy ANY MORE Christmas STUFF, (or even bring something home FREE!!!) ...but some sneaks in every so often! LOVE CHRISTMAS, so what's a girl to do! :)

And of course, there is the extra cleaning, (i.e. ...dusting! ), that has to be done between the transition of seasonal items. David says my problem is that I am "overly cleanive!" {To a 10 year old boy, any cleanliness at all is...."overly cleanive!"} LOL!

So, I'll be breaking from blogging until next week. Hope everyone is doing well! Lord willing, I'll be back soon! ~Rhonda

Love the cartoon at the end! That's my Kaje' to a "T." She puts them behind her door and it's hard to open. Her whole room can be clean but dirty clothes will be behind the door! I keep telling her we're going to break the hinges when I open it but it doesn't change her old habits! Enjoy the seasonal change of decor. I want Christmas up Thanksgiving weekend so Trav can enjoy it a little bit before he goes. Hopefully that will happen!

Take care.....looking forward to seeing all your pretties!

Rhonda~ I'm strolling in to catch up and especially to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving!
It's such a wonderful time to stop and reflect on all those we cherish and are truly grateful for.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to visit and leave feeling inspired!

Even though our Thanksgiving is very small in number, with hubby and son (we don't count the cat cause she doesn't like turkey). We don't scrimp on the menu...from appetizers to desserts with several carb loaded dishes in between! We will be enjoying tryptophan playoffs too!

Sweet Holiday wishes,

Beverly said...

Rhonda, I hope you and your family are having a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

Decorating is going full-force here this weekend. I want to be finished when I return to work Monday.
