So you know how I said that I thought everyone should just give Thanksgiving a chance?
On Saturday? We had the sudden realization that we're leaving town on Wednesday. And while Sydney and I are returning on the following Sunday, John won't be back until the following Thursday. And every year we put up the tree and decorate the house immediately after Thanksgiving. If you know me at all, you realize that having to wait four days after arriving home to put up the Christmas decorations might very well kill me.
And so? Yesterday we got down to the business of Christmas.
We have already watched three Christmas movies in two days. And? I'm really, really excited for Christmas this year! Last year we had a wee blob of baby who had no idea what was going on. Now? We have a TODDLER (weep!) who seems to be very entertained with the magic (or at least the redecoration) of it all. She's even "respecting" the Christmas tree so far!
And so, I take it back. Don't give Thanksgiving a chance. Let's start Christmas in July next year.
Also? I quit you, NaBloPoMo. I QUIT.
