Now that it’s December

I actually feel right about decorating for Christmas. I’m not religious, but I appreciate the season, the family time, the cooking and the feeling of relaxation at the end of a long year. I love the smell of wood burning in the fireplace, pies baking in the oven, and real Christmas trees. I haven’t had a real tree in years. My mom bought a fake one when I was in high school because one of my sisters is allergic. Took us like 15 years to figure it out. Then I didn’t have a tree when I lived by myself. And, my Ex is allergic to real trees too. So this is my first year that I’ll be ‘eligible’ to have a real tree.

So, tomorrow, the kids and I are going to rise and shine early and meet Nick for breakfast. Then we’re going to go to the Plano Christmas Parade. After the parade, we’ll head over to a Christmas Tree Farm. It’s not cut-your-own, but there are a lot of activities for the kids to do. We’ll get to pick our tree and bring it home.

I have boxes of ornaments to go through and weed out all the ‘Our First Christmas’ and our ‘Family’ Christmas ornaments. That makes me a little sad because there were a couple that I really treasured. One in particular. But I’ll have new ornaments and new memories to make with me and Nick and the kids.

I hope to get all my lights up on my house this weekend too. If I get it all done, I’ll take a picture and post it. I’m not promising anything spectacular. And there will be no snow to enhance the atmosphere of the photo. Yeah. Tomorrow’s high is supposed to be in the 70’s.
