Happy Friday! Can you believe Christmas is almost here? And shortly after that we welcome the new year? Crazy, I tell you.
I’m happy to say my shopping is done, we finally decorated the tree, I’ll be wrapping this weekend, and there are just a few more holiday treats I want to try. Forrest was positively giddy about the lights on the tree; we have the old fashioned big colored lights, so they get hot, but I think he’s figuring that out. So far (fingers crossed!!) he’s leaving the tree alone like a good boy. I’m going to put some Christmas music on tonight so he can boogy down. Seriously, while at a holiday party with friends over the weekend he was doing a total booty-shake groove to classical holiday tunes. I LOVE that he dances.
I do believe this is the most cheerful, organized and content that I’ve been in a while going into Christmas. Not for any specific bad reasons in the past, really, just this year I feel put together. Ready for it. Happy to be enjoying the holidays. Maybe most happy to be enjoying it through the eyes of an almost 17-month-old? I also can’t get enough of the Christmas music! Currently listening to John Fahey’s guitar loveliness – how have I missed him all these years?
Have a fabulous weekend, friends and loved ones. If this is the start of your holiday vacation, have an even better one. But go easy on the egg nog – there’s plenty more time to get the nog on. = )
