I feel like I haven't posted in a while...I tried to take a break this weekend to focus on my family. But Monday is upon us (at least on the east coast it is) and I can't resist the pull of the Not Me Monday!!
I have not neglected all my fabulous new friends because I have been obsessed with doing my blog layouts. And I have not been driving my hubby crazy with all the time I have been spending trying to learn how to do more!! To that end - I did not receive another award from another fabulous blogger (Thank you Elyse) and completely forget to post it, it would be so unappreciative to do that! (I promise I will do it today!!)
*If you aren't familiar - tagging a tree is where you go and mark the tree you would like, then arrange to go pick it up freshly cut. Some tree farms will make a whole event of picking up the tagged trees if you go on certain days (with cocoa and cookies and fun stuff like that).
I have to admit, that I have honestly never been more in the holiday spirit than I am this year. Tommy's first Christmas was exciting, but he was so young, he didn't know what was going on. Last year was fun, but still the anticipation wasn't there - he did love it. I was also a big fat pregnant lady last year and just didn't have the energy, with a new job and an active boy.
Tommy's First Christmas
This year I am excited. Tommy comes home asking about Christmas trees, talking about presents. Dan will be done with school in a couple weeks and we will be able to truly decorate and get into it this year. I can't wait to bake and decorate Christmas cookies with Tommy and decorate the tree, to open presents with both boys. Jack is at the point where he may not know what is going on all the time but he does have a good time with whatever happens to be going on.
I can't wait - I am ready to start decorating...
