It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like CHRISTmas!!

Or at least at the McGriff house!

Since baby Grace will be making her much anticipated arrival soon we decided to get a start a little early this year. Normally, you will not see anything red and green in the house until after Thanksgiving except for any gifts that need to be wrapped and mailed out so they get to their destination before Christmas.

Dustin pulled out the Christmas boxes last weekend and we started going through them and decorating the house. We found our Christmas CD's and were listening to Christmas music and drinking hot cocoa (we had to turn the AC down a little cooler for that!) This weekend Dustin pulled out the lights and put them up all over the outside of the house. All we are waiting on now is a live tree and we have heard rumors those will be showing up at the BX on Black Friday. The plan is for Dustin to camp out for one and then I can join him to pick it out right before they open, which is of course super early. He actually came up with the plan himself and this is after he laughed at the crazy person who has been known to camp out for Beanie Babies and Furbies... at least I was making money for my efforts!

Here are some of the pictures of the house... look back after Thanksgiving for our tree!

I just realized we don't have any pictures of the house all lit up. I guess we have to wait until dark for that!
