THIS IS THE WEEK I START HOUSES...

Sunday, October 25, 2009

If you read my FAMILY BLOG, you will understand why I am super TIRED tonight, no that would be totally EXHAUSTED and we still have one more day before Amanda and Micah will be home.
PLUS, I start decorating trees on TUESDAY.. Can it really be that time? Tomorrow I will spend most of the day getting everything organized. All our WORK BASKETS, RIBBONS, WIRE, WIRE CUTTERS, GOOD SCISSORS, etc., have to be with us AT ALL TIMES. Nothing slows us down like not having the right things to work with. I am excited about the first house. It is a dear friend that has wanted her tree done for several years and this is going to be the YEAR. So our first job will be a new job...we get to CREATE MAGIC.
I have received so many emails about how I keep the little man away from the tree. Here is proof that I DON'T!!!!! But the sparkle in Jack's eyes makes it easy for me to let him have a little fun....He even learned a new word tonight.
RED


He REALLY is a little ANGEL!
I FINALLY GOT HIM TO CALL IT A DAY But we do have a WINNER of A SPECIAL CHRISTMAS SURPRISE.......I HAD the little man above DRAW TONIGHT and the WINNER IS Jackie at Fresh Oil Today! I just visited her blog and its great, so stop by for a visit. It may be a few days before I post again, as I try to get in tree MODE. The first few day always bring aching muscles and a tired body. Later in the week I will have a cute GINGERBREAD tree to show you, plus I am hoping to have my Disney Tree finished.
Remember you can always email me if you have specific questions and I will answer as quickly as I can. annah99@aol.com.... .a little confusing with my name being Teresa....but Annah was our sweet dog for 17 years and I just cannot change it.

Will you manage to get a wee bit of rest? Do try.

Teresa, what a sparkly tree and grandson! It is such a special time of year for children of all ages, but especially the wonder of little ones. When my two were littl, I put the tree elevated on a sturdy box inside the play pen! The packages could go inside too and then they could look and look without fear of them pulling it down on them or ripping into the presents early. (They call them pack and plays today, but the same idea) Also if the tree is in an area that can be blocked off by a baby fence, that also works. I hate to constantly say no, no no, so it is better to make it unreachable from the start. Rest when you can and share more trees with us.
