Holiday Prep

I've really been slacking in the blog post production.
I blame the holidays-
Thanksgiving and now prepping for Christmas.
We're anxiously waiting for Santa's arrival.
(no, I don't have a fireplace in the house, this is my mom's office where
my grandson was checking for signs of the Jolly Old Elf)
We had a good Thanksgiving holiday
though it was a hectic one.  
I had hoped to host Thanksgiving at the house this year, 
but it just didn't work out that way.
I'd prefer a decent bathroom
and a dining room without a view of the upstairs bathroom plumbing
(not to mention the sound of the rushing water after the flush, though
it does signal when it's your turn to take a seat on the throne).
I have hopes for maybe Easter dinner.
There hasn't been too much going on as far as renovations go.
We did put up some curtains in the living room
(still have a few to get)
and I've got some ideas and plans spinning around in my head.
I just need to sweet talk Big E into getting on board
because getting him to agree grudgingly
is better than starting the project and yelling
when he comes home.
I can't share my ideas since he actually reads this blog
(probably to see what I'm up to or what I have planned for him)
and I don't want to give him a heads up before I have it all worked out in my head.
One idea might possibly involve friends of mine and demolition.

We did manage to get our Christmas tree.
It's up and the lights are on it
and the train is out.
The grandson loves the train, 
though there's only so much "All Aboard!"
and train chugging noises one can take.  
Unless you're 3, 
then apparently there is no limit for such things.
Hoping to get the rest of the house decorated in the coming days.
