Thanksgiving Dinner Melts, Elf, & Christmas Decorating

Whew! It has been a busy day of decorating over here in this house! :shock:

Of course, before getting started I had to pop Elf into the DVD player…it’s my favorite movie to decorate to!

Before getting the tree started, I put out some of our other decorations. Unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to use them all, since I’ve lost a good amount of decorating space with the kitchen demo…but I made sure to put out my faves. :)

I bought this post with the kitty on it last year at a craft fair because it reminded me so much of Cody. :) And I actually picked up the snowman today while out running errands…isn’t he cute??

It was almost time to start the tree, but FIRST…my absolute favorite Thanksgiving leftovers meal was ready to be had:

My “Thanksgiving Dinner Melt”

Oh yes my friends! That is a monster of a grilled sandwich, complete with:

  • Leftover turkey
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Leftover “special stuffing
  • Provolone cheese

I look forward to this sandwich every year…probably just as much as the original meal itself. It’s soooo good. Hubby tried one too and he was quite impressed! :)

After getting some fuel in the belly, it was time to tackle the tree!

And of course somebody else had to get in on the action…

I love going through and looking at all of our ornaments. Some are just plain silly…

But so many carry such great memories!

Such as this ornament that dates way back to when my grandmother was younger…

And this one from our honeymoon last year. Well, actually this year. Wow, this is actually going to be our first Christmas as hubby & wife…how fun! :mrgreen:

Now that the tree is finished, time to do a little more clean up, then this gal is headed to bed. Gotta get up bright and early to work on some more kitchen stuff!

Goodnight Everyone! :)

    such a beautiful tree! elf is one of my favorites, but I actually decorated mine while watching “Sweet Home Alabama.” It has nothing to do with Christmas, but I just love the movie. I usually watch it while wrapping gifts, but this year I was in the mood to decorate while it was on!

    Your tree is so pretty and I love your decorations. I’m getting so excited for Christmas, I’m dusting off the decor and hope to have everything up by Sunday. Yay!

    Ah, I can’t wait to decorate a mini xmas tree when I go back home for break. I’d consider doing it now, but I’ll probably be more relaxed and in the mood after finals :)
    Beautiful tree (and sandwich) hehehe :)
