Wordless Wednesday: Holiday Decor Prep

Thanksgiving is on Thursday. How did it get here so fast? Of course, we are running around doing last minute things like we always do.  We are extreme procrastinators in the Angry House.

My husband works in retail so he gets quite busy during the Holiday Season. I get tired of begging him to get the Christmas stuff situated every year, so I begged/annoyed him to get everything organized early this year.  He pulled all of our totes and boxes down from the rafters of our garage Monday night.  He then proceeded to organize all the boxes into categories: outdoor lighting and decorations, indoor decor, and Christmas tree lighting/decorations. We have a faux tree which is still in the rafters, and won’t be pulled down until Sunday or so.

After we organized everything, Angry Husband walked around the house with a measuring tape. He was doing measurements for our lights.  We also discussed extension cords, and adding additional outlets to the exterior of our house. Angry Husband is on a mission. For the past two years or so, we’ve thrown up decorations last minute and we put no thought to it. Hopefully, everything will turn out right this year.  We can’t officially decorate the exterior of our house until Thanksgiving day I believe, because of our lovely HOA aka Home Owner’s Association.

Oh, all of those totes featured….that is not all of our Holiday Decor. We have more up in the rafters that we are not using…

Christmas Decor Prep is underway. All categorized: outdoor decor, indoor decor, and Christmas tree stuff. Husband is on a mission. #Griswolds
Speaking of Thanksgiving, I am doing a GIVEAWAY for a Teleflora Flowers Family Gathering Centerpiece this week. It ends on 11.26.11 at 12:01am EST.

You even have a special floor for your garage. And it's perfectly organized. Let it be hereby noted that I'm green with envy. Happy Thanksgiving!

We're going to West Virginia this Christmas to visit my in-laws, so I'm not even sure we'll bother. I am almost dreading putting deco up just so we can come back from our trip and take it right back down again. Bah humbug ;)-

Wow, you have a lot of stuff. I also like to do holiday decos, but mine fit in exactly one box. Much less to clean up afterwards. ;-)

We have a large amount of Christmas decorations. It is a bit absurd actually.

Everything in our garage is in plastic tubs. We are a bit OCD, well I am at least.

Special Floor...LOL. Ironically, the garage is the cleanest place in our house. Probably because my son doesn't leave his crap everywhere.

Thanks for trying to follow. Google Friend Connect is being wonky. I'm having a friend try and fix it.
