This time of year always gets me to thinking about Christmas! I absolutely love Christmas. It never lasts long enough for me. That's one reason why I enjoy MMC so much. I can have Christmas year round and not look foolish!! haha

Here it is, August. Almost to the very end of August. September 1st, I will put out my fall decorations. I have a lovely fall wreath I made myself, along with another fall wreath I purchased, along with fall leaves and garlands. I hope to get pumpkins too. These decorations will stay up until at least until Thanksgiving. We will add to our porch a jackolantern for Halloween..probably the week before the actual day. They get mushyif you leave them up too long. Wanna ask me how I know?? Let's just say that experience is a good teacher!! hahaha

Then, in November, we will put out our Thanksgiving decorations. I have a cute little turkey and a few of Nathan's (who is currently 4 years old) his little crafts we've made through the years with him on display. Leave all that up until Thanksgiving Day.

Then. It. Happens. On Thanksgiving Day or the day after, we put up our CHRISTMAS TREE!!! A very exciting time for our family!! We all get in on the merry making and decorating. I cherish this time immensely. I love to sit by the glow of the Christmas tree lights at night. Especially if the house is quiet and all are sleeping and it's just me. Oh the solitude. Especially if I have a steaming Christmas mug full of Irish Creme or English Toffee cappucino. sigh.

Right now...I'm saying - BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!

    Bring it on is right. This time of the year is when the excitement really starts to build, I love the family time of decorating for Autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving also. My older son loves decorating for the holidays, and he has his own ideas of where to put things all the time.
    Thank you for sharing!
