It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Are you ready for Christmas? I'm not! Well, let me rephrase that. My heart is there, but my mind and body just can't keep up. I have lists of things I need to do, need to finish. Gift making, decorating, baking, cleaning, wrapping, and the lists go on.

We got a lot of snow earlier this week and it has been really cold. This usually puts me right in the Christmas spirit. My boys had two snow days and my plan was to get our tree up and decorated, hang the garlands and finish the gifts I am making. It's now Wednesday and I have had Christmas music playing, but just can't get motivated to "Deck the Halls". Would all this snow inspire you to decorate your home? After shoveling, I was kind of pooped. 14 inches is a lot of snow! I felt more like sitting by the fire with my cup of Hot Cocoa and Bailey's.

First snow of the season
