I am linking up with Farley for Currently December. This year has just flown by - calendar year and school year. I have 2 more weeks of teaching before 2013. It is crazy to me.
I love Christmas music, I would probably listen to it 12 months a year - if I didn't get strange looks from people. The music is why I love the feeling I have at Christmas. I realize the month is busy, but it just helps me slow down a bit and enjoy the season, the warm feelings I get inside. Christmas is my favorite time of year.
I am a Christmas freak. I would decorate 15 trees every year. A different theme tree or two in every room. The boys, grand kids, nieces each had their own theme tree. I loved it. I never wanted to leave my house. It was a lot of work, but so worth it. The boys liked it when they were small, but as they got older they didn't appreciate it. I haven't had a chance to decorate my house like that in 5 years. I miss it, but with health issues and being out of town for the last few years - it just wasn't possible. Last night, my youngest son said that he missed the house at Christmas and wanted to help me decorate like that again (I think it is because he now has a child of his own). I will be lucky if I get one tree up this year. My my mind is spinning - Hobby Lobby is such an enabler.
I have been making goodies for both of the stores. I wanted to get them opened up this month, but not sure if that is going to happen. I need some guidance on how to actually finish up.
I need more hours in my day - just to play like a kid.
I wanted to make batches of cookies - something that I haven't done in a long time. It is too easy to buy everything. Does anyone have any good recipes to share?
Well, go over and link up. I hope everyone has a wonderful, blessed, magical December.
