Now, if only I could get into the Christmas spirit. It just seems to me that the holidays are coming and going so quickly that I just can't keep up. Right now, I have a Christmas tree in the living room and ceramic jack-o-lanterns on the front porch. I know I'll catch up eventually, and it's really not worth worrying over. And, hey, at least we have the tree now. Soon the decorations will come and so will my holiday spirit.
One thing I know for certain, this year I will be more present and enjoy every moment, big and small. Let the kiddos decorate the tree however they want, read a Christmas story every eventing, have lots of talks about what Christmas really means, make tons of sweet treats and just enjoy being together.
Right now I'm enjoying the beautiful, un-decorated douglas fir in my living room, filling the house with it's woodsy scent.
