Although I'm thankful for LOTS and LOTS these days...I would be fine with skipping Thanksgiving all together this year:)
I enjoy it and all...but I am WAY looking forward to Christmas!
Jaxson is SOOO excited over every little thing these days....he is making my life right now. What would I do without him?!? Life would be pretty lonely...that's for sure.
His favorite thing this week is a good ole' hard-boiled egg...pronounced (car-bird egg)...so funny. He eats them like nobody's business.
Back to my point...
December is a beautiful and EXCITING time of year.
My Jarom turns 31....WE celebrate the big #7 Anniversary...followed by lots of christmas parties and of course, being Santa for one hilarious 3 year old. I cannot wait. I am Santa at our house....for all of us:) I carefully select each item...wrap them and then notify Jarom on Christmas eve what our child will be getting as well as what HE is giving ME. It works for us. haha.
THIS year Jarom has informed me of what HE is getting Jaxson.
I don't think it's necessary.
Jarom thinks it's a must.
Jaxson will freak out completetly.
....one thought about his reaction and I am all for it....
Truth is...my CHRISTMAS (as in 5 trees of varying sizes) are up and lit and decorated. Stockings are hanging from the mantle and I am laying here as we speak Christmas Shopping on Amazon. SIGH.
I will always decorate this early from now on!!! I am loving it. By december 1st I hope to be DONE with everything but enjoying my family and the christmas season (and most likely a whole lot of baking and eating). No running errands, shopping, fighting crowds, stressing, etc. Just enjoying this time with my son. Reading Christmas books, watching Polar Express...those kind of things.
I am so looking forward to it:)
Today I was thinking about how STRANGE it is that Jaxson can communicate with me...just like an adult. We have conversations...he helps me make decisions...he gives me his opinion. What did I do all day before he could talk to me? Was I lonely? Did I go for hours and hours in silence? I realized that I have NO recollection of having a baby? It's nuts how quickly they grow.
I love him to pieces...and not just because he's my child and I don't have a choice. I truly think he's witty and hilarious and quite entertaining. He is also sassy and bossy....but I think I might have had a little something to do with that...so he can't be held entirely responsible. He is my best friend right now....and I'm not sure how long he'll think that's cool...so I'm rolling with it.
It's full blown Christmas Mode at our house...how about yours?!?
