As I travel from blog to blog I notice that so many people are sharing cute pictures of their holiday decorations and adorable holiday stories.
I, on the other hand, have stories about murderous dolls and drunk 4 year olds.
What is WRONG with me?
Why do I always have to be inappropriate?
I promise you, I do like Christmas.
Here are some of my favorite things about this time of the year.
1. I actually feel like going out and socializing. Don't get me wrong, once I get my butt out the door I ALWAYS have a good time, but sometimes I'm slow to commit. When Christmas comes around I feel the goodwill towards my fellow man, and I love to celebrate.
2. The excitement that my children feel.
3. Photo Christmas cards. I LOVE getting them and seeing how all my friends' and relatives' children have grown.
4. Our annual tradition of traveling to a farm in Pennsylvania and cutting down the family tree. So far the farmer hasn't caught us, so it's all good. ;)
There's more, but I'm sleepy, so I'm going to bed, with visions of sugarplums dancing in my nutty little head.
(Oh and one more thing, for as much as I love Thanksgiving and Christmas...I HATE New Year's Eve...seriously. HATE it.)
