157 more days! Jim, you might as well have them put up the Christmas lights when they are doing the other work on the place.
This old farm house is gonna get the works this year...I guess you figured out that I'm very nostalgic.

You might have noticed, I am too 😊
I remember when I was a kid (very long time ago) , my favorite Aunt did her tree in all blue lights , then sprayed that fake snow all over it ( I can still smell it).
Then she did ALL the house and yard lights blue.

I thought that was so neat.

A few years ago I did that ...loved it , so did my family.

Too nostalgic ??

My mom still has my grandmother's "real" tinsel that she removed from the tree each year. It's wider than what you find now and is actually somewhat tarnished 😊 My other gma had one of those fake silver tinsel trees. I remember asking why they didn't have a real tree. Also, growing up we got to open one gift Christmas Eve. The rest had to wait until Christmas morning. One year I picked a smaller gift to open Eve. I remember Ma asking if I was sure I wanted to open that one. I can't remember what my brother opened, but something fun. Mine was underwear πŸ˜‚ And yes necessities were often gifts.

As we head into the next several days of triple digits, I have begun working on Christmas gifts and watched this video this morning as inspiration~

As you know, we will be moving between now and Christmas.
So we are downsizing
The 36 totes ,filled with Christmas πŸŽ„ decorations were taken down In garage and made me cry , almost.

We will be giving so much of them to the kids.
