More House Happenings! Christmas Cards to Christmas Tree

So I'm up late addressing Christmas Cards, because I'm over a week behind. Usually I'm rocking getting them out the day after Thanksgiving. Part of the whole Black Friday experience, add in a post office which is always fun! But this year I was late, who knows why I had the pictures with Santa done the week before Thanksgiving. All I had to do was send to Costco and pick them up in 24 hours. You ask what is my deal, I work from home that is the deal. I don't seem to leave the house unless it is to pick Cole up. I've become a hermit surrounded by screaming kids. Will someone come please rescue me, I don't drink often but I'm thinking a glass of wine with the girls may work ... LOL. So here it is my crazy world, no sleep and I finally go the tree up!

While we're at it why not show what has been happening at the house. Rick is on a mission, now to try to tell him we didn't win the lotto to pay for all these things. Well I did have a nice little nest egg, who needs new tires right? I don't drive that much ... LOL No really it's bad I think I may beg for tires for Christmas.
And for those who didn't catch the middle part
Here is the mid point of the living room!
Rick and his buddy painting until 3am!!
Here we are painted and new molding and chair railing!
Next Crown molding (the fake foam kind .. yup I rock it)
Even new trim around the doors!
Well not around the french doors but soon!
And what we came home to from Great Wolf
Guess we had a wind storm!
And what is the black blob?
That would be my BBQ cover usually located in the back!
And The Tree! Stop it yes it's Fake.
Have you read my life? Yes fake is the way to go!
Rick got it set up and the bins down for me.
Sadly not all the right bins, so more to come!
Aren't those Santas too cool?
Yes they are porcelain and I got them at the dollar store!
Now to find them again, i could kick myself for not buy more.
Got to have the Naughty and Nice Signs
The photo of my parents and the boys
And of course th SeaHawks Football Player for Rick
More tomorrow, now I must go to bed!
My hand is cramping from writing all those names.
For some special bloggy friends I have your address and I'm using it!!
I sure miss a printer at work to print my labels ... LOL

  18. I love the work that Rick is doing, the house looks great. Fake is the only way to go with a tree. That way I can keep it up until mid-Jan. Finally finished my cards too! Hey, I know what you mean about becoming a hermit, me too.
    Why go out when you don't have too!

  19. Your living room looks great! How'd you get your hubby to do all that work?

  20. I sent Christmas cards the first year I was married. That was back when the mail was delivered by pony express. That was the last year I did them.

    The remodeling looks great and so does your tree.

  21. Your living room is looking GOOD!!
    Your hubby (and you) is doing a terrific job! We got our tree up on that first weekend when Alex and Rachel were here. I will do a post soon, but Blogger is being a PITA about uploading photos - URGH!
    I got your card... I was so happy, the photos were SO adorable!! Plus, I finished mine and sent them out yesterday, so you should have yours by Christmas - depending on the USPS - HaHa.
    I just LOVE Christmas time!! :-)
