I don't know why I always feel the need to post pictures of setting up Christmas. It looks the same every year, but I like to reference the blog sometimes to answer questions like, "where did I put this last year?" So really, this is for me, not for you :) But I'll let you look if you want!
The main difference this year is...the cat. He made decorating an interesting (and sometimes stressful) experience. Stressful mostly because I didn't know what to expect from him. Christmas stuff has been up for over a week and I still check the tree first thing when I walk in the door to see if it's standing.
I also have a little two foot tree that I decided to put upstairs in my spare room.
The other reason I share all my decorations is because I realized that I spend all this time putting it up, and hardly anyone comes over, so not very many people actually sees the decorations. Now, I can share with more people.
