I was just going over my calendar and realized this week we are a month and a half away from Christmas! Our Toys R Us and Target toy catalogs came in the mail a few days ago so you know we are getting close.:) Jim even put up the Christmas lights over the weekend. We aren’t going to turn them on for a while, but he thought it would be smart to hang them before the 20-below wind chills kick in.:) I kept thinking of Clark Griswold because Jim had to get on the roof and I was just hoping after risking life and limb that the lights would work! I have to say, this was a first for Jim. He’s jumped out of airplanes as a Paratrooper in the Army, but hanging lights on our roof may have taken the cake! Our roof is not a friendly environment to be, so I am grateful he got down in one piece. I have a feeling we will be the house on the block with the icicle lights that stay up year-round!
I think my Faith Hill Christmas album jump-started my excitement for the holidays. I would rather be over-prepared though because usually it’s the other way around. My schedule gets so busy and before I know it, I have only a few days to get everything wrapped up. Oh! Before I forget. I found a cute website with old Sears Christmas catalogs. Someone scanned in all the pages and it is funny! Brings back old memories for sure. It’s www.wishbookweb.com.
