We have talked on and off about decorating the house for Christmas before Thanksgiving. With the Deterding Ranch Neighborhood Christmas Progressive Dinner scheduled for Friday, December 5, plans to go to Napa with Jack after Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving being so late (November 28), we were somewhat forced into doing it for the first time in twenty-five years.
Sharon actually started packing up the fall decorations last weekend. I started on Tuesday night bringing over a load of Christmas boxes. I made three more trips on Friday night. We pushed hard over the course of two days and are basically finished. We still need to get a tree!
Sharon is so pleased with the result that this may become the new normal. I was surprised how many other people in the area were putting up Christmas decorations this weekend.
