It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas….you know how it goes. And, now, we do too at the GRITS household.
The Christmas tree is no longer nekkid. The stockings are in place and I think this is the first year ever that I’ve got a wreath on my door. Seriously.
It’s taken me a bit longer this year to get my holiday groove on. In case some are new here, ALL of my usual Christmas decorations are in a storage unit that is currently housing the belongings of a friend who had a stroke earlier this year.
I can honestly say I didn’t really miss the never ending fluffing and the ridiculous plug matching of the pre-lit tree.
Is it just me or am I the only electrical buffoon who can’t seem to get the right wires connected to make the entire tree light simultaneously???
To save money on decorations we really don’t need, I went with ye ol’ shiny Christmas ball theme! Thank you Target for the $2/box. What a steal.
The Princess and I also made a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and bought a few pre-painted wooden items, glitter glue and ribbon. *poof* Instant homemade ornaments to hang amongst the shiny round objects. Because nothing says Christmas ornaments more than hand crafted.
I’ll spare you the chatter and let you take a look around.
Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you a Greek GRITS Christmas:
No fireplace here, so I transform the kitchen area counter in our mantle/stocking area.
Let’s get a closer look there:

This, sadly, is my first attempt, EVER, at making a bow. Looks like a need a few more lessons…and preferably not from some lady named Nancy on YouTube. Anywhoo.
Of course, you won’t make it out of here without seeing my cutie-patootie kids and their Christmas trees:
For those of you who notice the details, yes her tree is bigger than his; however, his has super cool fiber optic lights and, well, hers is pink! And it wasn’t an issue.
Looks like somebody else got caught up in the Christmas spirit, meet Bailey-Claus who is celebrating her 13th Christmas with us:
We’re not real fancy here, as you can see. But I hope you enjoyed looking around at our Christmas decorations!
