7 Quick Takes, vol 21 Christmas Spirit Edition

It’s the churchworkhome Christmas spirit edition!

I have yet to get anything ready for Christmas. Living in a home with three men, the decorating and desire for any type of Christmas tradition falls squarely on my shoulders. One year I refused to put up any decorations until someone else said something. No one said anything and I finally gave in about a week before Christmas.

We also tend to start some giant renovation project after Thanksgiving and so Christmas becomes a huge mess. So, according to tradition, my husband stepped up on the taping and floating in the back bedroom, which will eventually become our family room, with the current living room becoming a more formal area without the TV.

Now, on to the early Christmas treats!
