It started out really slowly last week but then it snowballed. As much as I tried to stop myself I couldn't. It was just one more box. And then another and then before I knew it all the boxes were down and all the Christmas was up and I was sitting next to a fire where stockings had been hung with such great care.
Christmas. It's happening.
We got snowed in this weekend. What that really means is Oklahoma doesn't know how to do winter. It's summer and then it's freezing rain. So I stayed inside, in my jammies for two straight days.
Two straight glorious days. We watched lots of movies and made cookies (like, not even store bought dough, I made real cookies). I cleaned and put up our Christmas decorations. I promised Squish I wouldn't put the tree up until after Thanksgiving but I'm having a really hard time keeping that promise.
I asked my little honey lamb what she wanted for Christmas. She told me, "A ball of pink yarn with a bow on top that has polka dots." So much easier than a damn pink reindeer, that's for sure. She's also mentioned a big night night Mickey and a Cinderella Barbie. Because Cinderella Barbie lost her arm yesterday and we had to throw her away. And there were tears.
Eve's making Christmas really easy on me this year.
Anyway, that's a recap of our weekend. Don't expect to hear too much from me the rest of the week. I'll be busy making deviled eggs and chocolate pies and mac and cheese and probably putting up a couple of Christmas trees.
I didn't promise Squish I wouldn't put up our tree or Eve's tree. That should hold me over until Friday morning.
