I am enjoying this Christmas season very much. I've been anticipating this time of year for the whole of 2010. I would even listen to my favorite Christmas CD's every once in a while throughout the year. Heath told me honestly that he thought that was weird but I had my reasons. Last Christmas was a great Christmas. Juniper had just arrived and it all felt surreal. So surreal, in fact, that I feel I didn't even experience the Holidays that were going on at the time.
Juniper under the Christmas tree, 2009
December 1st to 31st of 2009 was the fastest month of my life!!! It was so crazy that we didn't even put up a single Christmas decoration. Not even a Christmas tree (Luckily Gramma goes all out so we weren't totally deprived)! So basically, I feel like I need to make up for last year and not hold back on my enthusiasm.
Away in a manger, asleep on the hay
The tree has been up, I've got a lot of my Christmas shopping done already, I've been listening to Christmas music constantly, and Juniper has been loving all the lights! And the best thing...Christmas is still two weeks away. I LOVE this time of year...(sigh)
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!
