Where for art thou Christmas Spirit?


Where do Christmas Spirits go?
Can they find their way home?
(Sung to the tune of 'Where Do Broken Hearts Go'... fortunately I can't remember any other words to try and make my version longer)!!!!!



This Dear Friends, is the extent of the Christmas Spirit in our home this year... the dear darling husband of mine decided it wasn't worth investing in a tree when we are going away for Christmas this year! It will be the LAST year he'll ever get away with it again - as Button will be far to aware of it the next time we travel, whew; I need all the trappings!

I had thought I would find this year more exciting as Button is at the age now where she understands presents a little more, and is happy to rip off the paper (when she can) and 'enjoy the moment'! I am certainly looking forward to Christmas Day itself, but the build-up has been busy and stressful.

Only 4.5 more presents for me to purchase and I am done (hubby has yet to get my present as well - but then he'll be done also)!

Looking forward to just 'getting there' and then relaxing for three weeks as a family...

That looks like our place last year :-) It's a bit more festive this year as I got the tree out yesterday - still have to finish it.

More festive than us! We have no tree and just a sprinkling of cards on the bookcase. Next year we will do more!

This is the second year in a row I have misplaced my Christmas spirit! Sucks when the kids are old enough to understand Christmas is special and be excited. :( We only have our two lil trees and that's it. Next year will be better...lol

Hehe, you can share some of our Christmas spirit - we've really gotten into it this year (compared to previous years at any rate). Although, our Christmas tree is jammed atop the only available high perch in the house, wedged beside the split system. And we seem to have misplaced our coloured lights from last year. Found the plain ones...although there are a few strands needing bulbs replaced, but Munchkin doesn't seem to mind one bit! The nativity was in pride of place on the dining table (read: we don't have anywhere else it could be displayed out of small finger's reach) until Munchkin kept throwing balls on the table...nativity now on bedroom dresser so it stays unbroken for at least another year. Pity, but at least we get to glance at it on our wanderings in and out! ;op
See you on Saturday!!!
