Den has been away and all of the Christmas bins are in the crawl space in the basement. You have to use a small ladder to crawl into the crawl space, then turn on the light, then pray there are no spiders and then try to drag each bin down...they are heavy, fragile, and it is a two man/one cat operation. One girl / one cat doesn't work...at all...I tried it...
And...here's the thing...we swear every time we go down there that we had no clue our house was ever supposed to have a crawl space! We didn't even know what it was...it looks like an open window in our real basement. When we finally looked in it...we were in shock! A huge empty short ceiling space...totally freaked us out...we actually wanted them to fix it...hah!
So...until the week end...or until I conquer my fear of being alone in the crawl space...or until Lucy can hold a ladder...this is the most decorating I have done... Lucy did help with this one...graciously but not merrily!
