Welcome Christmas!

I never feel especially Christmas-y until the first of December. It doesn't matter how many radio stations start playing music on November 1st, or how many parades feature Santa at the end, or how much shopping I get done before This Day, the first of December is the day I really start kicking into Christmas gear.

This year has flown so quickly, and even though I've been aware the holiday was coming up it seems like it's here much too soon. My family will be here in three weeks. I need to finish cleaning and decorating, get my gifts together, and be ready to enjoy the time they'll be here in Livingston.

Lots to do, and not a lot of time to get it done, but it will be an adventure!
