I always put up my Christmas Tree, and most of my Christmas decorations, on November 1st. Why? 1) I feel like I should wait until Halloween is over, at least. 2) My birthday is December 23rd and I love my birthday! 3) Christmas is my favorite holiday, and everything about this time of year makes me happy.
Thankfully, my husband supports my need for glitter and Christmas cheer! We recently moved and we have a bigger house. 3 levels means more room for MORE CHRISTMAS STUFF! Here are some pictures of the tree on the main level. I'm still needing to decorate the tree downstairs (that's right...I get TWO Christmas trees now)! And technically 3 if you count the silver tree decoration ;) So exciting! Merry Christmas everyone!
I also found this article to be delightful. As if I needed a reason to decorate for Christmas early....CLICK HERE!

Thanks to Mary Cate Cichock and Lucas Wesling for stopping in this morning to chat about their show, Pixies, Kings and Magical Things! Performances begin this Saturday, November 3, 2018, and continue through Sunday, November 11, 2018.
Shows are Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. in the Veterans Studio Theatre at the Weber Center for the Performing Arts.
Narrator Hans Christian Andersen steps in to perform three of his classic tales. The Swineherd tells the story of a vain princess and the lesson she learns from a clever boy. In The Pixie and the Grocer, a pixie learns the balance of art and appetite. And the classic tale of vanity, The Emperor’s New Clothes, is given a fun twist as the emperor follows the foolish counseling of his ministers.
“Children and families alike will love this fun and whimsical telling of three of Hans Christian Andersen’s popular tales. Come experience the joy of live theatre as we create a magical and interactive experience that all ages will enjoy,” said LCT Producing Artistic Director, Grant Golson.
Pixies, Kings and Magical Things is directed by Stacy Bruemmer. This production also features costume design by Jennifer Burchell and lighting design by Erek Weis.
The performers are Stacy Bruemmer, Mary Cate Cichock, Dustin Luecke, and Lucas Wesling.
“I am excited to bring Pixies, Kings and Magical Things to the stage because H.C. Andersen is the original master storyteller! What better way to learn about kindness, sharing, and listening than with a story,” said Director, Stacy Bruemmer.
Tickets are $10 and may be purchased from the box office or online HERE. For questions or tickets, please call the box office at 608-784-9292 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
If you haven't heard, there's a way to make sure that kiddos with food allergies can participate in trick or treating. The TEAL PUMPKIN PROJECT started a few years ago and it's pretty simple but a huge impact for the kids that need it. Their goal is to raise awareness of food allergies and promote inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season.
All you have to do to participate is put a #TEALpumpkin on your doorstep for trick or treating and hand out non-candy from a separate container. You can hand out all kinds of fun toys, games, and prizes like temporary tattoos, stickers, glow sticks and more. FARE has a whole list of ideas at their website.
There's a handful of houses in our area that are registered as participating. Click HERE for the map to add your house or check out other Teal Pumpkin locations
