Christmas Decoration Fail, Mardi Gras Win.

On the day we chose to put up Christmas decorations, we pulled down a flocked tree given to us by some (wonderful) neighbors who moved away and could not fit the tree into the UHaul. We promised to to put it to good use stored it in our attic until Christmas.

We let Ashley and Andrew use our Christmas tree from last year and setup the flocked tree. Three hours into it, I could not breath in the house. We think I had an allergic reaction to the flocking.

I was unable to breath until we took the tree out of the house, vacuumed and cleaned all the surfaces it touched. Suddenly we were Christmas Tree-less. Ashley and Andrew had already decorated the tree and it looked adorable. We were not about to take our tree back, so I decided to not decorate at all for Christmas.

Later in the month, right before we left for Christmas in Hammond and Memphis, I decided to decorate for the next season: Mardi Gras!

So on December 22, I decorated the house like this:

Don’t judge me. I needed some d├ęcor!IMG_1316

We left the next day and did not come back for over a week. When we came home, it was ALMOST Mardi Gras season.

I do have to admit I missed having a tree and Christmas. Next Christmas, I will make it happen.

Next up: Christmas!

Love and Hugs, Lizzie
