Today we are going to our last Christmas party. This one is my mom's extended family, where we just buy for the kiddies and bring a white elephant gift and play a game with the presents. It's fun and low key, nothing formal. A very nice way to wrap up the season!
I have to be honest....I'm all Christmased out. I shopped early to avoid this feeling, and it still hit me. Is it bad to want all the Christmas stuff put away already? I love the lights and the tree and all the pretty stuff, but I'm over it already. Usually this feeling doesn't hit until New Years. Maybe I have it early this year because Christmas with a baby is more hectic, but in a good way. I don't know, but in any case, I'm ready for some REAL down time. In which I don't leave the house OR my PJs all day long and just play with my baby and bug Kenny while he's working in the basement. I have a few projects to accomplish on this week off, but all in all, I want to remain in those pajamas as long as I can and do as little as I can.
And next year on Christmas, I want to stay home. REALLY stay home. Carson will be 1 1/2 and he'll be able to open presents and get excited. I doubt he'll know what Santa is or the true meaning of Christmas yet, but I want that magical feeling that I had as a kid on Christmas Day, and I think that means staying home. Anyone can come and visit, all day long, but I do not want to get into a car AT ALL!!! We didn't travel too much this year, but it was hectic and we did leave on Christmas Day for 1/2 the day. Do you think I can make this wish come true next year?? Here's to hoping!
I promise we had a great Christmas.....we really truly did. I'm not complaining at all. I just am exhausted! I will post pictures later of the baby in all his Christmas glory. He was the star!!! Merry Christmas!!

A little late, but nonetheless, Carson is five months old!
We are getting ready for Christmas. The house is decorated, and has been for weeks. I skipped cookie making and did chocolate covered sprinkles instead. SO MUCH easier!! Nothing to decorate either. I'm done shopping, Kenny, on the other hand, not so much. He's out and about as week speak and I'm sure he won't be finished when he gets home. Our first Christmas celebration is on the 24th, so he can't actually shop on that day, which has thrown a wrench in his shopping habits. Hehehee....I did mostly online shopping so I've been done except for some gift cards.
I have stuggled with posting on this blog since Carson was born and I'm going to make a New Years resolution early. My resolution is to post 3 times a week. I've barely been posting once a week lately, since October actually, and that's not OK with me! I really miss posting and catching up on others' blogs and I really honestly do think about my blogging buddies and miss you! So I promise to go for that 3 times a week goal.
It is absolute heaven for me to wake up to my little man's coos every morning now that I'm on vacation. Music to my ears. I heart vacation!!
I am looking forward to spending our first Christmas with the baby. What joy!!!!
