Christmas Day will be quite interesting

The Kiddo is already super excited to see all of the different Christmas decorations that the stores are putting up for sale already.  W@l-M@rt has a tall Christmas Tree at each entrance with huge red & green unbreakable ornaments on them, and she always MUST go and look and inspect (and touch!!) the tree and its ornaments.

And, I think she wants a pink tree, too. LOL  Pink being her favorite color right now, this does not surprise me much.  I mentioned this to my husband and he kind of poo-poo’d the idea, saying we already have a tree, she can enjoy that one.  Still, I am considering getting her a pink tree, if just for her play area.  But I’d probably save putting it up for Christmas Eve after she goes to bed.  If I have enough $ leftover after gifts, I may get her one.  I think she’d be ecstatic at having her own, PINK, tree.  And of course I would have to get her some pink and white ornaments to go with it.  But we’ll see.

Of course when we put up our little 4 ft green tree, she will be helping put the ornaments on the tree. I’d still like to eventually get a taller tree to put in the front window, but that may have to wait until next year.  I may look into getting a 6 or 8 ft after the holidays depending on what is leftover with the sales.  I want to get a pre-lit, that is what our 4ft tree is and I totally like the fact that we don’t have to mess with tangled messes of lights during the decorating process.

I just hope that she can keep her hands off the ornaments once they are up.  I have a feeling we’ll have more trouble with her keeping her hands off the tree this year than we did her first and second Christmases combined.

On a side note, I think it’s bad enough that stores had their Christmas stuff up for sale the day after Halloween, but even the radio station that plays Christmas music exclusively each Christmas holiday, is already playing Christmas music.  Thanksgiving hasn’t even come and gone yet, people!  I know the economy is in the tank so stores want to make the most of their time, but really?  Christmas music on the radio? Please.  I like my share of Christmas music, in moderation, but this is just too early.  So we shall be avoiding that and any other station that plays Christmas music until we feel the time is right to start listening.

    You know if your hubby doesn’t like the pink tree you can get a white tree with pink decorations! My cousin did her tree that way this year and it’s so cute!
