Merry Christmas!!! and uh...Happy Thanksgiving.

Christmas started early for me this year.  I've decided to finally act on the empty promise that I make to myself every year that I want to be done preparing for Christmas by Thanksgiving. 


All of my Christmas decorations are up.  I know I do not have a grand tree but I love it so much.  All of the ornaments remind of something very special and together they remind me what a blessed life I have.  To me, the mismatched ornaments that range from beautiful crystal to the sheep with cotton balls I made in Nursery, blend into my favorite Christmas memory.  At least, my favorite memory that is at my own house.

Christmas music is in full swing here and my car.  Christmas cards are sent.    I've been rereading my favorite Christmas book.  I only have one or two gifts left to pick up and a couple to make.  Even the Christmas night lights are out.  And that means something.  All this time, I've been drinking hot chocolate like it's going out of style.

I am going on a cruise in 10 days and I was afraid it would cut short the time I have to celebrate Christmas this year.  I have gone to great lengths to avoid that.  Beginning tomorrow, I am going to as many Christmas events as possible.  EX: Radio City Rockettes, The Forgotten Carols, the Riverdale 3rd Ward Christmas Party with Grandma, the Hansen Christmas Party, Jon Schmidt Christmas, the Sand Ridge Ward Choir Program, and the Hoopernacle.  I'm pretty stoked.

I hope you (whoever you are) can enjoy the whole holiday season!  It's already been one of my favorites.
