How Darren spent his vacation...

Yes. That would be my husband. On the roof hanging lights. He has decided to be competitive with our neighbor. Our neighbor had his lights up last week. (Darren worked, Joe is retired) Now if I could just get him to rid our yard of the leaves like Joe does, we would be in business. ;) The rest of our outdoor decorations will be up in the next 2 days.





Thursday we put up our trees. Yes we have 2. One upstairs and one downstairs. This is our upstairs tree. The kids and I decorated it yesterday while Daddy was on the roof. He said he had enough fun putting up the lights.




This is our tree downstairs. You can see how well my husband puts lights on the tree. It drives me insane but I am trying to ignore it. Atleast I did not have to put lights on the tree.


This is how Gabe puts ornaments on the tree. He lines EVERYTHING up. Ornaments, his food when he eats, his shoes. I told him that with tree decorating we do NOT line things up. LOL
I have already been listening to Christmas music. To be completely honest with you, I have become my mom. Just not that bad. Back when I was in highschool, she would start listening to christmas music starting in September. In past years I have hated to put up my decorations. I was just indifferent to decorating. Now I am not. I am having so much fun. I wanted my trees and decorations up for Thanksgiving Day. We will turn them on Thursday.
I will keep you updated with CLARK's (aka Darren's) need to best the neighbor. This could be interesting. LOL

Cate is SO MUCH like Gabe *snicker*, everything all neat in a line! When she was 3 she decorated the tree with coat hangers, all in a line!
