Let The Merriment Begin

Last year after Christmas was all over, I felt like I missed out on all the holidayness that I usually love so much. I felt like I was way too busy, rushed and overwhelmed. I did have a 4-5 month old at the time. Maybe that had something to do with it?

Anyway, this year I am determined to enjoy this holiday season! Even if it kills me!

So today, the day after Thanksgiving and the official beginning of Christmas time, was a FUN day!

Marcus put lights on the house!

Santa's hanging out on the door!

And he's hanging out in the house too!

And this afternoon I saw the new Muppet movie with my parents and niece and nephew.
It was really cute and I loved all the music.

Then tonight we went to the Parade of Lights in downtown Ft. Worth.

There were about 100 floats and they were all lit up! It was great!

Katie loved it!

The weather couldn't have been more perfect.

My mom with Morgan and Ryan:

Kids make Christmas more fun!

So today, the house didn't get cleaned, I have laundry to fold, the dishwasher needs to get emptied, I have more Christmas decorating to do, and groceries to buy.
That's OK, it can get done tomorrow...or not.

Today I chose to enjoy the Holidayness and I am glad I did!

That's my motto! It'll be there tomarrow...or the next day and the next day after that! I'm with you...I was a top spinning out of control busy last year at this time and I'm not this year so I'm gonna ENJOY! Just started decorating...one tree down {the easiest one} and 4 or 5 to go! I'm nuts...I HEART Christmas in a big way!

I have the feeling I am not enjoying the season the way I should. Maybe after Heloisa is born ?!?!?

I love your house decor and Katie is looking cuter every day ; )
