I LOVE Christmas time. And I mean love with a passion. I love the music. I love the decorations. I love the food and treats. I love the lights. I love the weather. I adore everything about the season. I get so excited as soon as the season starts approaching. My husband thinks I'm a little nutty, and my kids don't get it yet, although Beth is pretty excited this year, but I can't help myself, I'm insane about Christmas. I want to buy every Christmas decoration I see, not to mention every Christmas music CD. It is truly my biggest problem when it comes to spending money. I've generally been able to use restraint, but I WANT everything I see! I could hardly sleep this morning because I was so excited to finally be allowed to pull out the tree and the decorations (I'm forbidden before Thanksgiving by my husband :) ). I have most of my stuff up now, except the tree isn't done yet, but I'm so excited.
Although I could list about a thousand things I would still like to buy to add the the decor, but even the little bit I have makes me very happy! The only bummer this morning is that I broke my FAVORITE most IRREPLACEABLE ornament! How sad is that? It was a beautiful delicate glass ball with a picture of Beth dressed as an angel when she was about 6 weeks old on it. It was her "baby's first Christmas" ornament. I am truly sad, it was so beautiful. I wrap is very carefully every year when I put it away and its been in perfect condition, and as I carried it carefully to the tree the hook slipped and the ball hit the floor, I was only about a foot away from the carpet too, it probably would have survived if I had taken it out of the box on the carpet instead of the hard floor. dumb dumb. Oh well, can't fix it now. I just have to mourn it a little. But Christmas still makes me very happy! I hope everyone is enjoying the season as much as I plan to!
