It's December

It's December 1st today, which means we get 25 days of holiday spirit! I trimmed the tree last Friday (picture above) and I swear I could look at it all day through Christmas. I thought that since we are cutting back on gift purchasing this year (and I mean way back), I wouldn't be as excited about the holidays. But I think I am more excited! Let's face it, no matter how much money you have, you can enjoy the holidays for free. Just go look at Christmas lights, or walk the mall to see all the decorations, or go to a tree lot to smell the Christmas trees. It's everywhere and I love it.
I hope you are able to get into the holiday mood, no matter what holiday that may be!

God, I'm jealous. Our goal is to get our living room painted by Saturday so we can get our tree up on Sunday (yeah, right)...
