I'M TRYING TO GET MOTIVATED

I don't know what is with me, my tree is up but I just haven't felt like decorating it! I wait all year for Christmas......Maybe it's because I was exhausted from Thanksgiving or because I really like to play Christmas music really loud and nothing but football has been on all weekend!! (nothing wrong with football, it just doesn't get me in the mood) First I have to remove myself from this computer!

So I finally did a few Christmas cards today and put away some of the Thanksgiving decorations. Put some Christmas tablecloths on the tables just trying to get a spark of enthusiasm. So hopefully in the near future I will be able to show you Christmas at my house. As you can see Skye is already wearing her holiday PJ's!

Feel free to give me a nudge!!

Skye you are the cutest thing EVER!

I so need to get my tree down and up. I usually do it this weekend but just haven't gotten to it :(. I need to remove myself from the computer too ;)

I am like you - I love Christmas and I cannot wait to get everything up but it is alot of work!
I think the older I get the harder it is to get moving - so to speak ha ha - but once I get it done I love it!
I am sure you just need to get your mojo going!!

Skye is absolutely adorable!!

I have been sitting at this computer for the past three days, editing photos. My Christmas decorations are all in a garage I have about 10 miles from where I live. I usually get over there near the middle of December. Then I keep my little tabletop pre-lit tree up until after valentines day because I love the lights.

You aren't late in my book, but if you need a nudge... you can go to Hassle Me and they'll send you emails to remind you to do something. I should blog about this again as it's fun.

I set it up originally to remind me to go to Facebook, this was before I had many friends on it. lol

I usually am like that but I guess this year w/ a new baby in the house it made me get with it. I do have my tree up and presents wrapped but that's not usually my style, LOL. I think your doing fine. Take your time :)

I've still got until next weekend to get started on the Christmas decorations. Sinterklaas has to be over first!

I love his pj's and your background is very cute as well: very wintery...

My husband is the holiday decorator. He's all about it. So I just sit back and watch!

Skye couldn't be cuter!

My tree sat there for a week without ornaments. I finally put them on over the break. I think it's overwhelming to me because we have so stinking many of them.

Hope Thanksgiving was wonderful for you!

My sister called me yesterday to tell me she wasn't into the Christmas spirit this year and didn't even want to put a tree up. After church her hubs put in the Josh Groban Christmas cd and voila! She called me after and said "okay, I'm ready!"
Have a great day!

Life is good! said...

I need to get motivated too. My tree and all the decorations are still in their boxes, which I have at least pulled out of storage. I figure if I keep tripping over them, I'll find my motivation....:)

Christmas is my favorite holiday. Time with family and friends. Baking, decorating, and making candy. But every year I get a later and later start at it. To the point my husband has called me scrooge. I wonder sometimes if it's because the older we get we began losing ones that are close to us and we dread the holidays.

Caitlin said...

She is just too cute! I love that little face! You'll get around to it. You still have 23 days to decorate your tree before it's too late! :)

kyooty said...

I have an idea, tell us about your oraments? As you put them on, say in "sets" like if you use yearly ones or Colors or themes? or have more then one tree? come on we want to hear? did you put up a small tree for Skye?

For whatever reason I think the change of seasons this year has really tanked a lot of people. MY hubs is having a hard time getting into winter as well. Me, i'm ready in August for thanksgiving to come and Christmas to follow. :) But that's me every year. We will do our tree first chance hubs has a day off. I can't wait. Here's hoping you put a few ornies on your tree. Hugs. Tammy

Randi Troxell said...

uuugghh.. i totally feel your pain too.. i love Christmas.. but I have not even really thought about when the tree should go up... but now you got me to thinking.. so we will see!!

Headless Mom said...

Join the club. Ugh.

CRY said...

THIS MIGHT HELP SINCE WE HAVE THE SAME BELIEFS
THINK OF IT AS DECORATING FOR JESUS' BIRTHDAY! BECAUSE IT IS!
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON YA KNOW!

Tami said...

I think it is the turkey sandwich with white bread and mayo that slows us down!

I too have a tree up and no decorations. The putting up the tree is the hardest part I think! Now I have a box of decorations sitting beside it...I think I'll get it done by the end of the week. I just stop and put a few decorations on at a time as I go about the busy day.

Amy said...

I love the new look on your blog. I really love the cups of with the drinks. Skye is way cute. We get out tree this Saturday then it will be my turn.

Sandra said...

I'm with you...I hope my daughter will help me get out the tree and ornaments tonight so every thing will be finished up.

COUNTRY MOM said...

Debby, Skye looks precious... Have a great Monday.

Trish said...

Debby...I could use a nudge myself!
I took down my fall decor and haven't put out one Christmas decoration yet! Hope to get to it this weekend.
Skye as always, looks adorable...I swear she poses for the camera!

Technodoll said...

Nudge! Nudge!

I need me some xmas mojo, all the decorations are still in the basement packed in boxes and we are weeks away from getting a tree...

Oh well.

The dogs don't mind ;-D

Utah Grammie said...

Love Skye's jammies! As for me..I can't get into the mind-set of Christmas decorating for such a short time. I do have the Christmas spirit - just not the energy to actually "do" it all.. :-(

Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog said...

Awww... I love her holiday PJ's! It's kinda early to get your tree up, isn't it? I mean, it's not even December yet! Or, maybe that's just because I'm too busy procrastinating to get my own of the basement..... ;-)

Having the kids listening and singing Christmas songs has really helped me. If you want I can call you have them sing to you too.

kado! said...

LOVE Skye's PJ's!

Skye looks absolutely adorable.

I am so not in the Christmas mood so I understand where you are coming from. I'm trying though.
