Feeling Festive

I caved. We put up our Christmas tree the weekend before Thanksgiving. The pure joy on these ladies faces when we turned the lights on made it worth it.

Then we all covered it in our eclectic mix of ornaments. We have 1,000 Dallas Cowboys ornaments, 1,000 Disneyland ornaments, and the rest are a random mix of stuff we've gathered over the years. Some of them were even mine when I was a little kid.

Christmas is definitely more exciting when you're a parent. You get to be Santa. You can spoil your kids. That's what we do anyway. Then you eat too many cookies, in the name of Santa, and play with the 1,000 new toys you just bought. Also on the list of things you do as a parent at Christmas: Fill ten garbage bags with toy wrappers that required wire cutters to open, buy matching Christmas morning pajamas for your ladies, watch the Grinch before its even Thanksgiving, we just watched it right now, and wonder how your kids grew up so quickly.
