He's Making his List and Checking it Twice

Have your kids written their letter to Santa yet? Or have you written yours? The boy is soooooooooooo excited about Christmas this year...I mean he gets excited every year...but this is definitely the first year he's asked (okay begged) that we put the tree up...I believe his asking began the day after Halloween!

I haven't done it yet...and we'll likely end up waiting until the first weekend in December as per usual...strictly because I've rearranged my living room since last Christmas and am still trying to figure out where a tree would look best.

This weekend we'll head off to the Santa Claus Parade (the weather forecast looks marvelous!) and the boy will get to give his letter to the mail carriers...that's his most favourite part of the whole parade!

I really do love Christmas...but I hate that it's in the dead of Winter...thankfully our weather has been great the past week or so...

It seems I haven't had much time to blog lately...or maybe just not much to say...life is keeping me busy. I hope you all are doing well and getting into the holiday spirit!

Doing our list...it's on my list, kwim?!

My least favorite part of Christmas is putting up the tree. We always get some ginormous thing for the foyer, and it makes me nervous everytime :)

Santa used to write letters back to me, but he's been ignoring me for the past 14 years. It's sort of offensive, actually.

The Santa Claus parade sounds like so much fun! I am really looking forward to Chritmas this year too - because of the kids. They are already so excited. It will be the first Christmas in ages that I can remember actually being excited about.
