Last year we got an early start on decorating and then got side tracked and wound up scrambling to put up all the decorations just before Christmas. This year we will try to be more focused and avoid the last minute panic. crazy

Last week we brought all of our totes of Christmas decorations plus all of our trees into the house from the garage.

Right now we have 7 of our 9 trees up. One can't go up until after Halloween because it goes where our Halloween tree is standing. The other tree is a small 3 foot tree that goes on a table which currently has a bunch of crafting stuff on it.

For the trees that are up, I have installed the special extension cords that have many plugs along their length for lights, magic cords, legacy cords and keepsake power cords.

One tree now has all of its special cords installed and the Here Comes Santa Claus tree topper installed. It is our Christmas Vacation / A Christmas Story tree.

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. grin

And Ornament Debut is less than 2 weeks away. smile

We are gearing up for the start of Christmas decorating.

Should be kicking off the start of the 10' Family room tree next week.

Today I completed decorating our Halloween tree...lights, ornaments, and a Halloween tree skirt. The tree topper is a plush Snoopy wearing a witch's hat.

Other than the tree that will go where our Halloween tree is located, all our Christmas trees have all the needed Hallmark cords and their tree toppers. It's time to start putting on lights.

I still have Halloween.

My friend used to start decorating on Halloween night. She would have the tree with lights already up.

Then she would hand out candy while hanging Christmas ornaments on her tree.

I loved the idea.

We won't be doing much for the holidays this year. Our water pump kinda blew up. We have water all over everything. Going through boxes now to see what is damaged, besides the carpeting. UGH!

Beaglebabes-Iím so sorry you are having to deal with water damage. I really hope it isnít going to be anything more than needing new carpet.

I officially have my slim trees placed. Prelit. Not decorated. I may move one. Thereís only so many places I can put a tree even though I like to change it up each year. The change part will be what gets put on the trees. The big trees wonít get put up until much later. We may host Thanksgiving so I want to leave some decorating until afterward since the same people will be guests at Christmas. I want to have some fun surprises still in store they havenít seen yet.

Sad to hear of your struggles, especially at the holidays. Hope you can manage some decorations and the card exchange. That alone will lift your spirits. I really enjoyed looking at the addresses from all over the country!

I really don't care this year if I have a tree. I have so much to do outside and inside that has been put off because of problems. I look forward to doing the card exchange every year.

Does it count if I never took my Christmas pictures down from last year?

I have just been overwhelmed with working two jobs and my hours increased when covid hit. I have finally started settling down recently but just find myself kind of lost when it comes to starting any projects.

I did agree to foster a little kitten from the ER I work at and he is doing so well he may go to his forever home in the next 2 weeks. Taking care of a little one was therapeutic for me and gave me a bit of purpose outside the hustle and bustle of my daily norm.

Sorry beaglebabes that you are having water issues. I can't imagine how discouraging and upsetting it is going through valued treasures for damage. My heart hurts for you.

Main tree in our family room is up and I've put 1900 LED lights on it.

Still have to put a couple old style light stings on for the older magic ornaments before I can say the lights are done.

Then on to various wires and then ribbon.

Our Star Trek tree is done...lights, ornaments and garland. I have the Star Trek table top Transporter, Bridge scene, and Transporter Water Globe on a low table alongside the tree. Just need to put the Star Trek tree skirt under it.

Our Christmas Vacation / A Christmas Story tree just needs garland and a tree skirt. I put the Griswold table top house on a low table next to the tree.

The Disney / Peanuts tree needs ornaments, garland and the Peanuts tree skirt.

The Star Wars tree has all lights and all Storyteller ornaments. Lots more ornaments to hang.

Our main tree needs the bubble lights and a set of Cookie Monster lights (we've had them since our kids were small and continue to use them), and then it is ready for ornaments.

The 2 cat trees have all of their lights. It's time to hang the cat ornaments.

I even got a shipping notice today that a new Lionel Christmas train that will go under our main tree has shipped. I already had 4 different Christmas themed trains that we rotate each year, but I decided this year to get a new one. grin

I am so excited that our decorating is this far along and there is still over a week until Halloween. I have never been this ahead of schedule. smile Hopefully, December will be a whole month of being to relax and enjoy the decorations.
