It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...almost...

Is it bad that I'm already looking forward to Christmas? Yeah, yeah I know I'm ridiculous but there is just something about that time of year that makes it one of my favorite holidays ever! My poor husband thinks I'm a nut and he laughs at me when I admit to him that I'm looking forward to listening and singing to Christmas music, stringing popcorn and cranberries or baking Christmas cookies....I look forward to starting those types of family traditions with our kids (which hopefully won't be too far down the road). Part of the excitement has to do with the great memories I have about Christmas time from my childhood, which I will have to share at a later date...like when it is actually winter.

So okay I admit that I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of fall, the leaves changing, Thanksgiving time and eventually Christmas. So for now I guess my Christmas cds will have to stay tucked away for another couple of months but it wouldn't hurt to get started on Christmas lists for my family. (Now is the time to put in your wish lists members of the Locke and Groves clan.)

104 days till Christmas (I promise I won't count down every day...I'm not that crazy!! ;-)
