I was finally able to get the decorations out for Christmas! It really wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be, and although it's a little shabby, I have a place to put gifts now, and I think that's lovely.
The only problem is that I needed a little help to get the lights up so I'll have to wait until this weekend, but it shall be done! After all, they are my favorite Christmas decorations, second only to the tree.
I hope your decorating went smoothly, or it will be in the time to come.
