Another reason to decorate this year is my mother-in-law is coming to our home for the first time. She lives in Indianapolis so we have not had a chance to have her at our home. She was not able to come to the wedding because of the distance. We did take a trip last year to see her and my husband’s father (they are divorced) and his brother. It was a lovely visit and I am glad that we were able to do that. I am bother excited and nervous for her to be with us. It will be for a week which is a long time but I think that we will be able to find something to do.
One of the things that we are going to do is decorate the tree. My husband thought it was something that we could all do. I think I decorated the tree the last time we had it up to surprise him so it will be a first for all of us. I have some lovely ornaments and some not so great ones that will probably have to go. The new ones are fun and mostly Santas and Snowmen, my preferred Christmas decorations.
I am hoping this will be a lovely moment for all of us. If not, the liquor cabinet is nearby and we can all give it some liquid fun.
