Cakemom - any cool holiday cakes in the works?
Me too! Me too... Thanksgiving weekend is when I put it up and New Years... I take it down...

Add green and blue:



Then some ornaments and skirt:



And with lights on:

You get to pick out your presents? Whats the fun in that? I pick out presents for myself all the time, too. I call it shopping.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Looks great TG! Fly, we love square snowflakes here too lol.

My decorating has been brought to a halt unfortunately. My fingers are taped together and in a splint, not allowed to use my right hand (my dominant of course) for 2 weeks until my follow up appt. UGH. Stupid horse I was working (kicker) and had a rope around her left hind, rope in my right and fought out her kicking fit. Woke up to a swollen hand, can't see my knuckles. Hyperextended tendon in my bird finger, awesome. Steroids and not using it, how the heck do you push a wheelbarrow one handed???

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

That is why you had a child!

Ok.... in reality, any way you could use a cart behind an ATV? I have a dumping one that I can operate one-handed. Saved my butt when my horse trashed my knee and it took a year to recover.

I have bah humbug years, and this is one of them. I won't be able to get my decorations down until the 5th and then we'll do our family Christmas on the 15th. On the 21st I'll leave and will be in Memphis until January 6th so it has me feeling like "what's the point?" I mean seriously, all the trouble for 2 weeks of viewing time? Blah. I'll do it though, but I won't like it.

Talk to text might be my saving grace ladies! I didn't even think about the quad trailer Del, thank you. I will have to see if it has a dump release. I'm spoiled with the skid loader, it is my motorized wheelbarrow and hay go getter but the hydraulic pump went out and it is shop bound. DH cleaned barn for me and did chores after working all day. I felt bad but I would do the same for him. DD did dishes for me and ran the vacuum.

Not sure how much more we will put up as far as decorations go but at least the important part is done.

MHF- Oh that bites about the hand! Sorry. I know exactly how difficult it is to run a farm injured and with a kid that is too little to help. ;)
As for the decorations... stop ya'll! You're making the rest of us look bad!

*...grumbles and complains while writing "get decorations out" on the very long To Do list...*
