I know I just put my Fall decor up today but I can't help myself! I've got the itch and I want to scratch it! I'm so excited for the holidays this year because I have a baby. Sure I'll be swatting hands at the Thanksgiving table as they try to sneak Zoe some mashed potatoes and gravy, or pumpkin pie! But it's going to be so much fun nonetheless! Who knows.. I just might allow it.. don't get your hopes up yet.
But Christmas! Who doesn't love Christmas? The lovely festive smells.. a big Christmas tree with pretty ornaments that don't necessarily match each other, but they're "hundreds" of years old so it doesn't matter. It adds character to the tree. Presents under the tree.. It's A Wonderful Life being played over and over (in my house it is!).. homemade sugar cookies.. Bing Crosby played in the kitchen while the ham is being cooked.. and then a 5 month old getting into things before it's time. I'm going to love it!
Don't worry, I didn't put a tree up and I'm not listening to Christmas music yet. I make myself wait till the day after Thanksgiving. Besides, even if I wanted to Paul wouldn't let me. But I look forward to the day I can. :)
Until then I will enjoy my Fall leaves and creepy scarecrow that I bought at Walmart for $8 that occasionally turns around and stares into my living room while I fold my laundry. No joke.
Cue scary scarecrow!
