1. I can't believe that Christmas is less than a week away!
2. I'm so glad to not be traveling for Christmas
3. Going for a walk and seeing the houses lit for Christmas is fun... but seeing how many houses aren't decorated and knowing that a lot of them are that way because they are in foreclosure is sad
4. Mommy is making a list and checking it twice... a list of things to do before the Christmas chaos begins
5. Getting most of the shopping done in a few days was good, but it also makes me feel even more like I don't have everything done
6. Knowing that Christmas will be even more exciting next year makes this year exciting too
7. Reading Christmas stories with Blake is even more enjoyable than reading them with my classes in the past
8. Christmas music 24/7 on two radio stations makes it easy to get into the mood
9. Knowing that we will probably be able to wear our shorts and t-shirts for Christmas seems strange... right now the forecast is for low 80s on Christmas day... yes I'll keep you updated on that as we get closer ... cause I know you need do know this!
So what are your random thoughts about Christmas??
