I’m not much of a Christmas person. I’m far from a traditionalist in the holiday. My kids always knew it would soon be Christmas when the Cryptkeeper belted out We Wish You’d Bury the Mrs., Juggle Bills, or Deck the Halls with Parts of Charlie.
Actually, my children were not aware of the actual lyrics to “Up on the housetop”. My poor son kept confusing “Up on the housetop reindeer pause, out jumps good ole Santa Clause” with “Up on the rooftop with nails and saws, I’m gonna catch old Santa Claus…” During his third grade performance he actually sang nails and saws line HEHEHEHE. (I know, I know, bad Mommy! BAD! BAD! BAD!)
This Christmas is a little different. Our little Alyx is almost 2 so this is her first official Christmas. Yes, she was here last year but this is the first one she’s actually going to be able to get into it. That makes it something to look forward to. My son and daughter in law already have the Christmas tree up and whenever they come in from being gone anywhere the first thing Alyx does is pick up the remote for the Christmas tree lights and commands “lights!” Followed promptly by grabbing the TV remotes and shouting “Sponge Bob!”
It’s almost time to say good-bye old year… hello new.
At this time of year, I always look back on the past year and review what I accomplished, what I missed (sometimes by >Demon’s Fall in January
Getting more books written and submitted—that’s a big one!
Our little Alyx turning 2.
Welcoming my son and daughter-in-law’s new baby in April—I’ve said all along it’s a boy and according to the latest ultrasound I AM RIGHT-hehehe
Watching my baby girl cross the stage in May to receive her high school diploma—THAT’S depressing! And of course, planning the graduation party…I’ll be hitting up friends and family for ideas on this.
My annual girls week in July.
Did I mention writing more?
