Christmas Progress

The tree is mostly done. The boxes are still in the living room, and need to go back outside to the shed. I still haven’t done much wrapping and need to get to that, probably tonight.

I think in my mind this will go down as the year that Christmas wasn’t. We usually put our tree up Thanksgiving weekend, but since my extended family is coming mid-January, we waited until this week to get the tree up. And all my Advent stuff was packed with the Christmas things. For the first time in I don’t remember how long, we haven’t done nightly scripture readings, nor have I read Christmas books to the kids. These are my favorite things about Christmas, and they aren’t happening. Wonder if that has much to do with my lack of holiday cheer?
