So Saturday is December 1 (Happy Birthday, Chris) and I think it will really start to feel like Christmas knowing there are basically only THREE WEEKS until Christmas. ah!
Seems like there is always something needing to be done this time of year, but I enjoy having so much going on. This got me to thinking about all that I want and plan to do (not just have to do)...
* Get out and drive around to look at Christmas lights with Logan soon. Maybe we'll take out the stroller and get some exercise - that would be better except that I can't have a latte in my hand :)
* Bake some Christmas cookies.
* Hunt for the "perfect" tree, pray that it makes it home without flying off the roof of the truck, trek it into the house, spend half an hour trying to get it straight in the stand, fight with the lights, put on some Christmas music and decorate it up. Wow, doesn't sound like fun when you think about it like that, but I love the whole experience of having a real tree.
* Set a date with Santa - interested to see how that is going to go now that he can really experience meeting the jolly old man in the red suit.
I also hope to hunt down some PJs and continue that tradition of new PJs on Christmas eve *(thanks mom).
What traditions are you doing this year? :)
p.s. Found this quote this afternoon that I just love and had to share: Jesus, the Light of the World, as we celebrate your birth ... may we begin to see the world in the light of understanding you give us.
