On Sunday we had our annual Christmas in July celebration. Dave and I have been doing this for 10+ years now and we always manage to pull off a little something no matter how crazy things are.
This year I let Jack pick what kind of tree we were going to have. He said birds and butterflies, so birds and butterflies it is.
I just stuck on some dollar tree craft birds, some tissue poofs I had made years ago, and some butterflies that Jack tried to make into a garland earlier this spring. (Sadly he ended up with clusters of butterflies of opposite ends of the ribbon and about 10 feet of empty space in the middle, lol.)
Then I strung together some pearls to make a garland and voila! Christmas in July.
We usually give each other a few small gifts, but this year (DROWNING in medical bills) we just gave Jack a few things.
It keeps him entertained to have a few new things in the hottest part of the summer.
*My* present was getting Dave to rearrange the living room. And then part of the kitchen. And then Jack's room. And new living room curtains. I will show you photos hopefully later this week, when I get Dave to rehang all the pictures on the walls!
Merry Christmas in July (a little late) to you!
