I Love This Season!!!

There is NOTHING better than Christmas time! I love the lights, music, festivity, excitment, fires in the fire place, peppermint lattes and hot cocoa, snuggling under rag quilts, watching movies, eating "comfort" foods, appetizer parties, fancy parties, Bears games, eating chili, SNOW, spending 25 minutes getting the girls in their gear for a 5 minute play outside, sleds, sledding down hills, sharing, time with family, giving, receiving, sales, after Christmas sales.

Today (Black Friday) we spent the morning and afternoon at Grammie and Poppy's new place. We enjoyed hanging out, helping (somewhat), and having good company. Now we're home and Pete is outside hanging up Christmas lights while "Jingle Bell Rock" is blasting from our porch, the kids are outside riding bikes, Rowena is sleeping, and I've just made a few appetizers for our small party for Joe's show that's on tonight--WHITE COLLAR. Tonight's episode was actually written by him, and he will have his first ever by-line. Woo-Hoo! We're excited to have our first fire of the season, enjoy some leftovers for dinner, and snack on appetizers (crab dip, spinach artichoke dip, and pigs-in-a-blanket) for the show.

We're realizing that sadly our family room will be Christmas-free this year (we don't care to try to keep Rowe away from them for the next month or constantly tell her "no"). We'll have our stockings hung on the mantle, but the rest of the decorations will be limited to the front room, and maybe the girls' room this year. And, of course, the outside. I'll post a picture as soon as it's all done. Tres excited. What a wonderful day...I LOVE THIS SEASON!
