Happy December! I am a self-professed Christmas nerd so I am quite excited for the season. Mock me if you like, many Grinches do, rolls right off, I don’t care. I just love it!!! Yes, we have our tree done, outside lights up and most of the decorating finished so we can enjoy it for as long as possible. Honestly, we might have waited until next weekend to get the tree because it does get dry but the girls are in the local production of The Nutcracker (they will appear as rats with swords) and we have house guests (their biggest fans) so there will be no time. And, no, we absolutely could not have waited beyond that! Besides, it makes it easier to toss that tree right after Christmas because as much as I love it now, I like a fresh, clean, tinsel-free space by New Year’s Day.
