MckLinky Monday - Christmas Decor

The holiday season is upon us and Mrs. Edwards on the RHOK wants to know - "When do you drag out the Christmas decor?"

Well, I say as early as possible! But, my husband thinks it has to be after Thanksgiving so, normally I'm ready after we eat our Thanksgiving dinner or ok maybe the day after Thanksgiving or so ;) This year I thought we might get the Christmas stuff out before Thanksgiving being that we were out of town for a few days for Thanksgiving -but, we didn't get around to it before. And then I thought we might get to it when we got back home Saturday but, after unpacking and other things we didn't -Finally we just got the Christmas stuff out and the Christmas tree up and decorated yesterday! Still have other decorations to put up though -So, still getting around to it all. I love Christmas and decorating for Christmas but, whew it can get kinda exhausting! -and is it me but, can it cause some tension? -It seems inevitably I'm telling my husband to move the tree topper this way and then no,no back that way a little and then he gets frustrated and then I get frustrated, then I grab my step ladder but, still can't reach and then I fall or get some other kind of boo-boo -Yeah that might've happened yesterday- Ugh the mom mayhem ;)

Well, anyways how about a picture of my tree:

I know it's dark and it's actually a picture from a few years ago -but, I still have the same tree and I ♥ that picture-the Christmas tree glowing in the dark :)

So, how about you-When do you get out the Christmas decorations? Be sure to join the MckLinky Monday with the RHOK!

Love your tree. I need a new lighted star topper. Mine isn't lighted and it needs to be. I'm going to be on the lookout for a new one.

I love having a star on top!

Nice pic!
Christmas decorating gets pretty intense around here, too.

I love that picture, too! I tried to take a similar one for my blog and failed miserably... I guess it's the windows that are making mine not glow. Anyway, your tree is gorgeous!

Oh no. Did my comment not print? Crap. It's because I forgot to type the magic word at the bottom.

All I said was that I liked your tree and I haven't ever put one up. Can we still be friends? It's a long story but I tried to get my hubby to put it up this year and I was shot down. He stinks.

I love your tree. I haven't even begun to think about decorations, probably because some of them are still up from last year. I know!
