So Excited!

Well we all know what's next! Halloween is over and Christmas is around the corner. My favorite holiday! And no, not because of gifts. It's about the Christmas lights, Christmas music all day every day, decorations, food, family, seeing how excited my kids get hearing about Santa and all those wonderful Christmas movies - A Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, Elf, Jack Frost. I'm so giddy thinking about it I can hardly stand it. Andrew has always dreaded Christmas and that's because he's a Scrooge, but I know deep down that he really enjoys it. Especially now that we have kids :) I was in Target last weekend standing across from the Halloween isle and I heard the lovely sound of Christmas music. If I had access to a Santa hat I would have shoved it down on my little head and wouldn't have cared if someone thought I was one of Santa's elves. I'm ready for the Botanical Garden light displays and the Christmas craft fairs. I've already made JC a Christmas tree hair bow and I found some Christmas cookies to make. Ahhhh! So much to do in the next 2 months.

Ok, I think I'm finished now. :)


  1. I am with you Candy. I love this time of year, and can't wait to start decorating. It's such a joyous time, and having young kids really makes it that much more exciting.

    PS I want to see pics of your hairbows! You've given me the nudge to start making them for my girls again. :)

  2. I love autumn and all the fall stuff you can do. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday now so at least think Thanksgiving this month! :) Christmas is stressful....fun but stressful. I think my favorite part about Christmas is all the things you mention..the things leading up to Christmas. The actual day of Christmas is not as exciting... except watching your kids open their gifts. :)

  3. I have gotten to where each year I dread Christmas more and more! When we got married Stephen was the scrooge but now I think I am taking over! It's just so busy and I guess sending my kids off for what seems like forever makes it worse. Maybe you can rub off on me...little elf! Elf IS my all time favorite movie. I am getting tickled just thinking about him testing those Jack-in-the boxes!! Does somebody need a hug? hahaha!
