Honestly I wasn't excited about putting up the Christmas tree in this rental home. I had a day or two of being a sour puss having to decorate in a house I don't love.
You know what happened?
We decorated and now I'm in love.
I love this little house all festive and bright for Christmas. I love driving up to the house and seeing the big tree lit through the huge front windows. I know we all have good days and bad days and good thoughts and bad thoughts. I don't like being negative and I make it my mission to try to always see the bright side. This time the bright side smacked me in the face and I deserved it!
I wasn't excited about getting a real tree this year because Hayden's eczema is out of control and I didn't want to add more allergy to his life. We ended up getting a pre-lit fake tree and it's kinda fun. I think it is a great idea and we can use it in our playroom in the years to come and get a real tree for the main living area again.
Anyway, I'm excited about this year now and I know God will have us in our new home next year. That will give me time to get a new tree skirt. ;-) Goodness we need a larger one!
