Happy Holidays!

Good God, I'm behind! There are nearly 5o entries out there from my fellow bloggers, just waiting for me to read. Meanwhile, This D*mn House was silent for two WHOLE DAYS. So I couldn't possibly allow a third to go by though I'm just barely ekeing this entry in under the wire.

Part of the business of the past few days was finishing decorating. Specifically all of those outside ones we never managed to finish. Finally did that on Christmas Day. Of course it was 30-some degrees only to be nearly 70 both yesterday and today. Here's some of the results.



I have good reason for the silence. I was busy with celebrations and celebration prep. In fact, I only recently arose from a brief nap (of about three hours) after being awake and in motion for nearly 36 hours! That's right. From 8 something yesterday morning until nearly 7 p.m. tonight, I was doing stuff in the house or locked in the throes of a celebration with family friends.

We were all so tired when this celebration wrapped up that most of us could barely speak. There were long, uncomfortable silences and even the 10-year-old guest seemed to lose his concentration on the John Wayne western he was engrossed in.
So, part 1 of the revelry is wrapped up. And I couldn't let it slip away without wishing the happiest of holidays to you and yours from me and mine at This D*mn House.

I was getting ready to put out an APB for you! So when is part 2 of the celebration supposed to begin?

Jayne said...

Happy holidays to you, too! The outside decorations look really good. Sounds like you had fun, although you were awake waaay too long. (Been there, done that, and it's no fun.)

Kay said...

Dang, your siding and driveway and walkway and everything look so perfect, it looks like a dollhouse! Very nice.

CD said...

Like Monkeygirl, I was also concerned. Thinking I might have a blog addiction. House looks fantastic. Enjoy your time off.

I'm a regular reader of your blog but, until I saw the photo, I didn't realize how "picture perfect" your house has become! It's adorable! You should be so proud of yourself!

MG -- Thankfully, Part 2 was yesterday! Part 1 was abbreviated and not with the whole family since the kids were sick. (I can't afford another of their "extra" gifts this year! :-) )

Jayne -- thanks! Yeah, I rarely stay up that long. Now I remember why! :-)

Kay -- Thanks. It's all the mother's mind's eye. I'll take a bow though 'cause I'm proud to have gotten it here. Just wish it was ALL done.

CD -- thanks! I'm definitely blog-addicted. :-)

Star -- Thank you! That's so sweet. I can't help but be a little proud. It's been a lot of work and there's still plenty more to do. It's funny because it doesn't seem sometimes like it's MY house. :-)

Picture perfect indeed... your house looks like something out of a holiday greeting card...

NV said...

CyFree -- Thanks! I'm pretty happy with it at the moment.

This D*mn House looks beautiful all decorated up! I love all the red bows.

I'm trying to get caught up with my blog reading. I've taken an extended holiday and am finding it tough to get things going again...not just in blogland. Anyway, off to finish getting caught up with TDH!
