Day 427

Well, it's official! Christmas is just around the corner.  How do I know? Well, I saw an elf run past me through the lounge room yesterday, so that's gotta mean something.  Plus of course there's the whole Santa list thing going on. Oh, and there's the empty bottles of champagne lying about which suggests celebration is in the air. Plus sugar plum fairies have been dancing in my head and totally messing with my mind (the bitches).  And let's not forget the fact that we're all hemorrhaging money right now on weekly shop-a-thons.  But the number one reason I know that Christmas is just around the corner would have to be that extreme makeover that took place in my lounge room last night.  I woke up to find a tree had magically grown in the corner where the table soccer used to be, plus my fireplace had transformed into a green and red Santa fest.  And in the middle of the night I woke up to flashing lights outside my window which I thought were Emergency Services but turned out to be our very own Chevy Chase style house bling.  So with all that going on it's starting to feel a lot like Christmas.

Seriously though. The kids (and their friends) had a ball decorating the tree yesterday. I gave them free reign.  We finished up with quite an eclectic looking tree full of kidnom and child spirit.  (The funny thing was that I discovered later that night they'd only done one side! The back of the tree was nude. I quietly tried to fix it ....)  I thoroughly enjoyed decorating the fireplace and going around the house adding decorations here and there. I even attacked the main bathroom with cherubs, holly, a Santa and a small Christmas tree to sit on the back of the toilet.  (There's absolutely nothing wrong with taking a festive crap.) Derek channeled his inner Chevy and did the house lights.  After some assessment he's decided there is more to be done in that department, but overall it looks fantabulous.

Yeah, it's starting to feel a lot like Christmas. How's your Christmas mojo shaping up?
