Nice pick ups!!!
Hmmmm....great idea!!!!! Thanks, Xmas!!!

I'm a creature of habit, and we always start putting up the Christmas village on Thanksgiving night.

The rest of the Christmas decorations, including the trees, start going up the following day.

That being said, I may just start putting some things out before Thanksgiving!!! You are so right....I've got to make up for that time that we lost =]

I went out and mowed the yard, I was melting like Frosty. Now I have a headache from the heat that won't go away.

Tomorrow we will be able to listen to Christmas music on Music Choice Wooohooo!

I hope you all are enjoying your Sunday.
It is toasty out there!!

Are you expecting mid 90's this week, too?

Stay cool & hydrated!!

Can't wait for Music Choice!!!! =]

Have a great night, friend!!

I think you have a winner!

Thanks for the photos, too! Around here, I haven't stumbled onto any July Christmas blossoms. I'll have to visit Michaels, JoAnn's and A.C. Moore to see if they have the spirit yet. I just finished a Christmas afghan and have been making winter hats for Friends of Boston Homeless.
