I used to love Christmas! Everything about it. Going to see all of the window displays, the train displays, the light displays. Everything always seemed so magical in December. So, instead of becoming more and more Grinch like, I've decided to take back my holidays! :)
I'm just going to have to figure out how I can make it feel more like Christmas around here, without moving to a state with cold and snow that I absolutely loathe.
So, I finally dragged out our crappy little Christmas tree and the kids had fun putting the ornaments on. Then I decided to make some ornaments for the upcoming show this weekend too. So, I turned on the holiday channel on Pandora and made these ornaments while I sang along to my favorite holiday songs.
I know, I know.....
Making some ornaments and dragging out a tree isn't exactly a great effort but I'm working on it. Next year I've decided to have a real tree for the first time in 18 years. I'm going to make next Christmas a Christmas to remember for a long time. Dang it! This year, I'll do what I can on such short notice. :)
No really, after I do the show this weekend I'll be focusing on Christmas. The getting of gifts, wrapping, planning dinner, etc.
Maybe if all of you share what you do for Christmas it will inspire me to get my rear in gear. Just leave a comment telling me what you HAVE TO HAVE when planning Christmas. There may be a little somethin' somethin' in it for you too... hint hint. More on that later.
In the meantime, wish me luck at the show and I'll be back Monday with info from the show and the somethin' somethin'. ;)
