It’s beginning to look a lot like… it always does.

I stole this from Aunt Margie:
You Are a Minimal Christmas Tree
You’re not a total Scrooge, but you feel no need to go overboard at Christmas.
Less is more, and your Christmas reflects refined quality.
This is totally me!! I love the family, friends, and food aspect of Christmas, but hate the the stress of gifts and the work of temporarily redecorating. Grabbing my family and going somewhere fun, like Hawaii, would be way more enjoyable than sitting at home and watching The Sound of Music for the 59th time.
Kevin and I have only had one full-sized tree since we’ve become parents. Oopsie! Since we are traveling again this year, in addition to having work done on the house, I doubt we will put the tree up. I am so bad at Christmas that my mother-in-law once stuck a wreath on my front door because she knew I never would. I have been thinking about buying a lit-up village-surrounded-by-a-train-thingy, so maybe I am finally coming around.

One thought on “It’s beginning to look a lot like… it always does.”

  1. hahaha…. I am with you. I would like to go off and be with family in log cabin in the woods with a big ole fireplace!
    I finally bought a pre lit tree this year. As we set it up, we were feeling quite smug as I normally spend HOURS putting the lights on the tree. I high fived Sparky because it was set up and LIT in 2 minutes. That’s when Lauren looks at us and says…
    “Why didn’t you ever just keep the lights on the artificial tree that you used to use?”
    We just stared at each other. WHY DIDN’T WE THINK OF THAT?!?!?!
    Why DID I take them off only to put them back on the next year?!?!?!?!?!
    Out of the mouths of babes….
