Tour de Christmas 2013

As I was taking these pictures, I began asking myself why I was doing this.  What was the point of documenting our home ready for the Christmas season?  After all, my blogging over the last year has been sporadic (at best) and nearly non-existent (at its worst!).  And so I came up with my 2 most motivating factors – neither of which involve you, my loyal readers (all 3 of you).  Sorry.

1.  I love love love Christmas.  Everything about it.  I’m the girl that began decorating before Thanksgiving, just so I could enjoy the coziness of Christmas longer than one short month.  So, to me seeing my home filled with trees, twinkling lights, paper wreaths made by children and special keepsakes handed down or given as gifts, is  Like, my favorite thing ever.  To me, Christmas decorating represents so much JOY.  All the decor, no matter how “over the top” or colorful it might be, makes me happy. Happiness = best reason ever.

2. Plain and simple, if I document how things were decorated this year, decking the halls next year will be that much easier.  While I like to change things up now and again, for the most part, I thrive on consistency.  Some might call it laziness – I call it resourcefulness.

So, you see?  These pics are for ME!  But if you enjoy seeing how other people prepare for the season, like I do, then I suppose they are for you too!

Merry Christmas, friends!
