Oh Christmas Tree

So, in general, I don't decorate for seasons/holidays. Mainly because I'm lazy. I like to say it's because I'm a busy girl, and don't have time, but really the reason is because I don't want to spend the time to do it. I am impressed with those people who have lovely decor for each season. Not me, sorry. You come over, and you get the same ol' stuff all year round-- except for Christmas.

I love decorating for Christmas. My house just feels so complete when it is decked out in the red and green, and I really get excited. And a tad bit crazy. Like making sure everyone has the exact same wrapping, except different bows so I know who's is who. Yeah, I know. I promise I'm not really like this with anything else, so don't fear for the sanity of my future children.

Anyway, usually I am a hunting widow the day after Thanksgiving (meaning, I am alone while my hubby is off 'catching' woodland animals), so I usually spend that night putting my tree up all my lonesome, just me and my Frank Sinatra holiday cd. But this year I thought maybe you'd like to join me for the decorating!

This is my first attempt at a stop motion video (and ever posting something on YouTube, this is a big night for me), so don't judge me on my video skills just yet, I'm still learning!

And, PS, No -- that is not dip in my pocket. Who do you think I am? Come on guys! It's a lens cap.


  1. How fun Elyse! One day, you will have to show me how to do a stop motion videos!!

  2. THIS IS SO PERFECT. Ben and I are going to try and do one.
