All that said, I am doing all I can to get into the Christmas spirit. Phil and I put my tree up the last weekend of November. I leave the lights on non-stop. There's nothing like coming home to the glow of a Christmas tree.
Aside from my Eiffel Tower tree topper, there are other French-themed ornaments scattered about. I hope to someday have a small tree exclusively decorated with French-themed ornaments.

And of course, now that I am back in Minneapolis, I got to resume the tradition of hosting a Gingerbread House Decorating party with my college friends and their kids. We had some snacks (all gluten free, of course) before we got into decorating mode!
The houses turned out great! Mine is on the far right.
And of course we had to take some "silly face" photos. Phil would fit in with this group.
Do you feel ready for the holiday season? Have you been to any holiday parties?
