I know. I KNOW! I mean...it's going to be a WEE sparse at first because I don't have a TON of pink ornaments yet (YET.) but the ones I DO have are fabu and I can't wait to put them on a gorgeous SPARKLY white tree. Seriously.
Yeah. I have no business living in the country.
BUT! If it makes you feel better about my chances of surviving out here, I DID do a red and green tree and then our main tree is gold and silver with our nativities on it. Sorry, shoulda said, "Spoiler alert." Ah well.
I can't wait to show you. For real.
The post may be up late-ish if it isn't up by afternoon because hubs and I are participating in our church's Nativity Exhibit tomorrow, which I'm really looking forward to, and so we might get back home late. We're singing in a choral number and then we'll end up hanging around to see some of the over 500 (!!!) nativities on display. I collect nativities myself (although I don't have nearly that many...it's good to have something to aspire to...lol), so it's always amazing to see them all displayed.
Not only that, but it's a really beautiful, peaceful way to start the Christmas season. The rooms are softly lit with beautiful Christmas music playing in the background, some of the nativities (especially those from war-torn or poverty-stricken countries) have really beautiful stories behind their creation which are typed out on cards next to the nativity so you can read about them, and there's a lovely pageant on the Friday night that it opens (which I mentioned hubby and I are singing in). It's just a lovely break from list-making, frantic meal planning, stressed-out shopping, and finally melting down in front of a Hallmark movie with a box of Thin Mints on your lap.
So I'll see you tomorrow with pics of my very first Country House Christmas. I CAN'T WAIT! Wish us luck with the pageant!
