What is Rudy Day ? .....

I've always enjoyed Christmas. The decorations, the flurry and, of course, the real meaning but always felt let down on December 26. It was all over in a flash. All the planning and doing was gone in a minute. Finally I found the OC ...not the tv show but the Organized Christmas website which led to the Magical Holiday Home Forum. I don't even know how I found it but I did. And they had this wonderful thing called Rudolph Day....Rudy Day to most of us.....that lets you think, plan, dream about Christmas at least once a month on the 25th. And the best thing was I found more people out there just like me ! Crazy about all things Christmas. Well, almost obsessive. But to my family and friends that think I'm nuts half the time, I just want you to know there is no cure for it so don't try to find one. I wouldn't want the cure if you could find one anyway.

Monitor and adjust ..........


Dear Hubby's favorite motto.....monitor and adjust. Just what we had to do to get the tree up this year. I think I had mentioned that we have a new computer cabinet in our living room this year. Right where the Christmas tree was sitting last year. If we were ever on one of those HGTV shows where we are trying to sell our house, the first thing they would ALL say is........Way too much furniture in this room! Well, I can't help it. Dear Hubby makes the nicest furniture for me and I can't part with any of it. I think we just need to double the size of the living room. But that's another story.

Anyway, we couldn't figure out what to do with the tree. After about 30 minutes discussion with Dear Hubby and Son #2, we decided to just put half the branches on the tree and shove it up against the wall. If we had let it stick out farther, the person sitting on the end of the love seat couldn't have seen any of the bowl games. AAGGGHHH! So here it is.



The picture isn't too good. Still having trouble with the settings on my camera. The popcorn garland isn't finished and I have another "cheap" ornament in the works but you get the idea. I will beat this camera thingy and have a good picture in time for the Tour of Homes (more on that later).

Blessings, Cathi

Love the tree! I see you ahave the snowman faces on them. I tried my hand at making some and they were fun.

What a clever solution. I think it looks great and your snowmen look so cute peaking out around the tree.

You can't tell that only have the tree is up. Very clever.
