How to decorate "simply"


 
This is how I decorate for Christmas.

  I'm not doing much this year...keeping it simple.

 Well I guess I better at least put up the tree...a few lights...a few ornaments...try to keep a simple theme....maybe just red.

  Up the stairs..go through boxes....down the stairs.....up the stairs

.....can't find my lights....I know they are in one of these boxes.....

why not just take ALL the boxes down the stairs.

  Oh look at this cute Santa....maybe I'll put himmmmmm......................here.

  Okay...the lights....hmmmm........well here's the outside icicle lights

 I'll just throw them on the tree...all the dangly parts will look cute!

....oh and here's some blue lights....I've never put blue lights on the tree.....

throw them on there too!

  Aww...look here's the gigantic Christmas frame with Matt and Tanner's picture

 let's just put ittttttt.....ummmm.......here!...on the end table...

.just skooch the lamp over and move this tray....hmmm..where can I put this tray?....

wait......rumble rumble....here's a bunch of old ornaments......plunk...tumble...tumble....

throw them all on the tray....now hmmm.....where to put the tray......

let's just sit it on the coffee table...not bad......now the tree........
 
just red ornaments....keeping it simple......oh here's the ornament we bought on our family trip....

but it's green and has ducks on it.....oh well...just put it on......
 
might as well put all of these different random ornaments on the tree......
 
what about the mantle....I don't want to move the stuff that's on the mantle....
 
just too tired for that so let's just go outside and cut some branches and throw some more ornaments
 
 and hey here's an angel...will......she.....fit........on.....top.......of.....this........candle.......(propped it up).
 
.(stepped back and looked).....no that looks stupid.......I'll take it down later.
 
  I like these natural branches from the cedar tree from outside
 
 let's just stick them behind EVERYTHING on the wall......
 
YOU get a branch....and YOU get a branch...and You get a branch.....
 
now what about the tree....hmmmm....maybe I should stick some branches IN the tree!!!
 
  Stick, stick, stick.........(stand back and look).....hmmm....no that looks dumb.....
 
start pulling branches out and pull all those dangly lights out and half the ornaments
 
 and about this time Matt and Tanner and Shannon walk through the door....
 
and the look of horror on their faces.....one of them said
 
 "it looks like Christmas threw up in here"..........hmmmpf....
 
they just don't know what a "simple" Christmas looks like.

Warning!! Hallmark movies are not real!!

Must...stop...watching...Hallmark....

why hasn't Shannon taken me on a midnight picnic?

 Why hasn't Shannon hand carved me a special ornament?

  Why hasn't Shannon whisked me off to ice skate?
 
 
 Must stop watching Hallmark!
 
 
 
 
 
So after much research (more Hallmark movies)

I'm beginning to realize that maybe it's not all Shannon's fault that he is not like the Hallmark movies...

I mean I haven't seen the women in these movies laying on the couch

 in their 2x chicken themed pajama pants with powdered donut dust all over their sweatshirt .

 I really don't qualify as someone who is easily whisked away to ice skate.

 So I guess he is off the hook although I haven't ruled out the midnight picnic.
 
Television romance is so over rated anyway....just look at our examples....sheesh!!
 
Like....the Kardashi - hens...
 
 
Who needs romance when you have the real deal.....
although a teeny weeny amount of romance would be nice
 
 
 
and if I'm telling the truth I don't need much of that sappy stuff
 
I know that  the real acts of love are in the little things...
 
like..building my chicken coop..
 

or riding through the country in a beat up old truck with dogs on the back..
 
 
 
or not commenting when you cut your own hair and it becomes a mullet...
 
 
It's bringing me my favorite snack.....(although I don't need it)
 

 
and following him home because the truck has no tail lights..

 
 
Letting me be me and loving me anyway...
 

That's what true love is...

Rolling....

Well I had on a cute Alabama football jersey and I took it off because I looked like an actual football player....

but.....when I tried on my cute Alabama shirts they were all too small.....
 
due to my extra curricular activities (eating).....
 
so.....I will put back on my football jersey but the
 
first person that walks up behind me and ask "Sir, can you help me?"
 
I'm going home...:(
 


 
Rolling with the Tide today!!

Hello Darlin'

 
 
I would like to introduce you all to....
 
Mr. Conway Tweety!
 
 

 
The big ole fat bottomed girls aren't giving him the time of day yet...
 
 
He's still a little young and small but just you wait girls...
 
 
Just you wait until he starts crooning...
 
All he'll have to do is say....."Hello Darlin"
 
 
and he won't be lonely for long...:)
 
 
I already know he is going to be a big celebrity so of course I had to have a selfie with him..
 
 
 
It was all fun and games until the Fed Ex lady drove right up to us and caught us.
