It's Beginning to look alot like Christmas! it is. November 17th already. I honestly haven't a CLUE what happened to 2008. The past year has flown by so fast. I was just telling TJ that it feels like Christmas was just a few months him it feels like a year but for me, it's a vision of the very distant past. Everywhere I go, whether it's Costco or Target or even to a restuarant the places are decked out in Holiday decor. Even if you wanted to procrasinate......this year the retailers aren't going to let you! I have to admit though, it's been out for a couple of weeks now and I have done a bunch of Christmas shopping already. Mainly for Christmas parties and my kids.......but there will be no waiting until the last minute at my house this year. I have had the decorations ready at the garage door for weeks wanting to put them up but I just can't do it! I have to wait until at least next weekend to get them up, then I can turn them on after Thanksgiving. I don't want to be the crazy holiday decoration lady on Bentgrass Way!

If you drive towards Bellingham on the Guide there is a house already completely decked out in lights and animation and it was on last night! Talk about getting in the spirit early! The kids are already asking to listen to Christmas songs in the car.......ok I guess, whatever makes them happy. I am just glad to be in the midst of the season......getting together with family, eating great meals, visiting and just spending time together. The chaos and business of the season keeps me in high spirits......along with the occasional egg nog latte or peppermint mocha!

So I guess what I am trying to say is...........Happy Holidays everyone! Let the season begin!
