Last year I just could not get myself into the Christmas spirit. I didn't want to decorate or go shopping. I just felt "Ba hum bug". This year is a different story. I really can't wait for Christmas. I am so excited, even thought I can't afford alot of Christmas presents this year. I can't wait to decorate and put up my tree! Josh's grandmother had up their tree today when I dropped Ellie off, and it made me want to put mine up even more! I have always had this rule though: No Christmas until after Thanksgiving. I feel like if I put it up before, it will take away from Thanksgiving holiday. Nobody needs to do that. Thanksgiving is the one time of the year where everyone is suppose to be thankful for everything they have. I know I am, more now than I ever have.

Anyways, I can't wait to put my stuff up!! Thanksgiving needs to hurry along!! I have been trying to figure out a date to do it and I think I will put it up one day while Josh is gone. Kinda surprise him with all the decorations! I don't think he likes putting it up anyways. I do wish, however, that I could put up my outside lights!! I desperately need a City power truck (or any truck with the lift box that goes high up), or someone with a really really tall latter, or someone that is willing to slide (maybe even fall) off our roof.

Our roof can be steep in places, especially over the front side of the house. We tried the first year we lived here. Josh climbed on top of the roof and slipped several times. So we decided that was a bad idea. We then tried his Uncle Jimmy's really tall latter (I believe it was 16 ft or taller) and it was still too short to reach it. So if anyone has any ideas on how to get them up, please feel free to come help!!! I would love to have them up. And yes, I would probably be one of those people that left their lights up year round. Face it, who would want to get back up there and take them down after all that hard work? I wouldn't.

So, anyways... I am starting to ramble because I am so sleepy. I just wanted to let everyone know that I am so ready for Christmas!! Hope you all have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving in case I don't write before then!

I felt that way when I was pregnant with Bryson. Stephen drug all the decorations into my house and told me to get up and decorate the tree that I was not thinking of the kids. Then Bryson came along and we decorated the tree and quickly learned that it would have to be in a fence to keep him from climbing it. Good luck keeping yours out of it. I will have a hard time keeping Bryson from throwing things into it this year. He has a mean left handed pitch going on right now!
