It's starting to feel like Christmas around here...
We finally took down our lighted spider from our house (from Halloween!) and put up the Christmas lights. I really shouldn't say "we". I had nothing to do with it. Mr. J spent all day Saturday getting our house looking spiffy for Christmas.
I was telling my neighbor, I should just put a santa hat on the spider and we'd be all set.
We had our annual Relief Society (women's organization) Christmas dinner at church. I volunteered to decorate a table. Each table had a theme. My theme was "The First Noel." I had fun sewing up a table topper and making origami ornaments for each place setting. I got to bring out my china and glassware and nativity set.
I really enjoyed the evening; the program of Christmas music and poems helped me get in to the Spirit of the holiday. It was fun being there with friends and the food was delicious. The high school boys were there dressed up and acting as waiters, one of which was my son. I was glad he was there, it was a good experience for him (and I think he might have even enjoyed it on some level).
Now it's time to get the inside of my house decorated. We started a little yesterday. Miss K loves to put up the nativity sets. She did a great job! Monday I hope to get some shopping done while the kids are at school and we'll get our Christmas tree in the evening. Then it will really feel (and smell) like Christmas around here!
