I didn't want to post pictures without the tree, so I'll do that this week sometime.
I like to have my Christmas decorations up for Thanksgiving dinner. I just think it is a great kickoff to the holiday season. It feels cozy and warm and really puts me in the holiday spirit.
I have a deer stew in the crockpot, so I'm all sorts of cozied out tonight.
Now all I need is Shane to hook up the stereo again so I can play me some John Denver Rocky Mountain Christmas. That is almost the only Christmas music I like. There are a few exceptions. I really like the Trans Siberian Orchestra, and I like a few Chipmunks songs lol. And some Alan Jackson.
John Denver makes me think of my mom. She loved that album too. I miss her all the time, but it is Christmas that I think of her the most. I have some of her Christmas decorations and they bring back memories of how special she made Christmas for our family. That's where I get my love for the decorations. I don't remember much holiday decor in our house during my childhood except at Christmas. Miss you mom.
