Christmas in September? I don't think so!!!

I don't know what it is about the start of school, but that signals the start of Fall for me.
Never mind that in Texas it can still be 95 or higher!  I am done with shorts, done with swimming, and I am ready for fall color!  Which speaking of fall color the only way you are going to get fall color in Texas is to do it yourself Sista, because around here we don't have the beautiful turning of the leaves.  Oh no, around here our seasons consist of hot, hotter, hotter than hell, and a couple of days of ice to throw everyone off.  

 Anyway,  the first day of school with the kids out the door I potted plants and put the wreath on the front door.  I even brought out the fall centerpiece for the dining room table.

 Well, a couple of days later I happen to be in H@bby L@bby.  (I've only been there a time or two before. Wink!!)  And, would you believe they have their blasted Christmas Trees and Nativity Scenes all over the dadgum store!  What in the world!!!  It is 104 outside and they are spraying fake snow on artificial Christmas Trees with Jingle Bells playing in the background!  Did I miss the memo that we were skipping one of my personal favorite days of the year to decorate for : Halloween!  This means War!!  I  ran home immediately and drug out every piece of Halloween decor that I could find!  I put spiders and bat on everything that would sit still.  
And, if you haven't been to Mich@el's and caught a glimpse of the Martha goodies...get there!!!  So stinkin cute!!!  The spider clings on my china are from that collection, and I think they look fabo!!!  I didn't buy a thing at that other store because, duh I didn't need any fake snow in September!!!

I still have 5 weeks to go...Look out!!

Does this make you wanna pull your hair out too!!!  Let me know!!!!
Please leave a comment...I know your Mama taught you not to "ring and run"!!
