Blog Party - Day 10 - Decorating

This is going to be my last day participating in the Blog Party. My parents are visiting from Wisconsin so I will not be online much. It's going to be hard to stay away, but it's "the right thing to do"... especially since they brought bring fresh cheese curds. I had a great time participating and have "met" lots of wonderful, funny, thoughtful and intelligent women. My Google Reading list has multiplied and I will continue to visit many of you. I also appreciate all the nice comments everyone has left. Thanks even to all you lurkers out there for coming to visit. I've received around 500 hits since joining this party and I'm completely shocked. Feel free to leave a comment any time. I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Do you decorate for the Holidays? Do you have a themed Christmas tree? Share pics! Do you think there is such a thing as OVER decorating?

Our decorations are pretty simple. We have a tree, some holiday nick-knacks and some stockings we hang on our stairs since we don't have a fireplace. Our tree is never themed but it contains lots of ornaments that are handmade by family or have some special meaning behind them. While our neighborhood does not do this, I think it's really neat when a street gets together and does a theme. If you aren't able to do this, I think you should put up as many lights as possible. I do not think you can over decorate. Currently, we only have a few outdoor items, but we are adding to the collection each year. Our goals is to have an electric bill in December that reaches the $1000 mark.

It seems that I don't have pictures of our decorates to share. All of our Christmas pictures seem to be taken over by Morgan. Funny how kids do that.

holy lights batman! I can only imagine what a house would look like at the holidays if their bill reached 1k! I want to say good luck, but a part of me also wants to have a heart attack just thinking about it, lol

I've enjoyed reading your posts for the party, but I hope you enjoy your time with family!

$1000? That's almost a years worth of electric for us!

You think I could forward my bill to your house and make that count? One of these years the Japanese maple is going to collapse under the weight of hubby's lights.

Tracye said...

I'm with Sarah! I'll just send my bill along...

Nice meeting you! Enjoy your family time.

Ohhh, isn't it hard to stay away when you have visitors? My mother-in-law stayed with us for 3 weeks this summer and it was so hard to be a good hostess!! My computer just kept calling my name... Yeah, isn't that baby thing weird? Mine turned out way ugly, lol. Not sure what to make of that. :o)

Okay, now I'm madly in like with you. A celebrity. Yep, that's me in the mag. I was so thrilled about my weight loss, I emailed them about it and they put that in there,so I figured I'd release my post around the same time for anyone who wanted more info. I'm going to post some tips and tricks, too! Thanks so much for making me feel like a star!
