    Yay Christmas!!!! Even better because this year will be Christmas with MY family! Last year Christmas didn't even feel like Christmas because I was with the ILs. I've had a two-year build up.

    Oh... this is sad... it's 90 degrees out and now I'm thinking about decorating my house and playing Christmas carols!

    Happily married since 2008

      LISA! I want to punch you in the face for even mentioning xmas! (j/k I you). But seriously.... xmas = winter which = SNOW, which I HATE!! I know... a Canadian that hates snow, doesn't make much sense. But I feel like the summer flew by and the weather was crap and I didn't get to enjoy it

      But since you've mentioned it....... I love gifts. I'm like a little kid except that I also love to give gifts.

        I totally second Nikki's comments! (except I am not canadian but I do HATE SNOW!)

        seriously I can't even think about it for at least a good 3 more months! :)

          lol I'm so glad that I've been able to make a lot of you ladies happy with my Christmas comments!!!!

          I personally don't adore snow. I only like it when I don't have to drive in it! lol

                Since DH and I don't live close to our families & he works most Christmas's I have decided I am no longer celebrating Christmas until we have kids!! I was alone for the first time last Christmas (DH was working day shift) and it SUCKS!!! Just me and the dog hanging out cooking a turkey! I think DH is off this Christmas, but not for long enough that we can go home.

                I'm so sorry Geralyn. It will definitely be hard - it was for me. I decided that the first year after my step-dad passed away to change up Christmas so we weren't doing the same routine just without him there. This, I think, made it a bit easier. At least EVERYTHING was different, just not his lack of being there. Anyway you can do that? Have a Christmas at another relatives house/city/country

                    Great post Lisa :o)

                    I live in Phoenix so snow is a total novelty to me... love to snowboard and visit it, but honestly I wouldn't have a clue what to do if I lived in it!

                    Christmas this year will be mine and FI's first as a married couple. Yea!


                    I'm with Becks - I am thinking about where to put my Christmas tree and it is hot hot hot here today. I am chuckling thinking about the tree because I bought a 13 foot red tree after Christmas last year and can't wait to see it all decorated.
