DECEMBER has ARRIVED!!!
I have to tell you my mood started off great around the first of November, I was feeling the Christmas spirit and was READY to put up lights and dig out the old boxes of Christmas decor, but by late November I became a little humbug about everything:(
(Maybe it was due to all the trying for a baby hang-ups going on in our life right now)
Such is life, right!?
Anyway, the Christmas Spirit finally found me and I have been listening to the original Osmond Christmas album from back in the 70's non-stop. This kind of music soooo brings me back to when I was a kid :)
I am EXCITED for Christmas, but I do have to say that I didn't go all out on the Christmas Decor as I have in seasons past.
I am in transition of wanting to go a different direction with Christmas Decor. But it's a bit too late in the game for that so I will have to focus on that next year and make a trip down to Tai Pan in Salt Lake 2 weeks before Thanksgiving (Note to self) when all the GOOD decorations are still in the store. We just went last week and there wasn't much left to buy.
In the meantime,
I am making due with what I have used in past Christmas's :)
(I did simplify it this year, But it's still very festive)
My personal favorite...
The Reason for the Season!
Making the light and the chairs around the kitchen table
a bit more festive!
And lets not forget the outside...
This magic is ALL Brett's doing!
BTW the man turns the BIG Three-Five in a few days, so be sure and wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
I have always felt bad for him that his birthday is during the Christmas season. Makes for an interesting birthday and also makes for an expensive month for me!
Especially when Brock was born in December as well
(just two days before Brett).
Oh well, at least they can share it together!
And it was fun bringing a Christmas baby home from the hospital on Brett's Birthday!
love those memories :)
