If you are like my husband – you are kicking and screaming at first glance of the post title (love you, hunni), but let me assure you.. I haven’t forgotten anything.
A rather strained conversation was had on the way home from church yesterday and continued after I politely asked for him to pull down the Christmas tree and ‘stuff’ from the attic.
‘...Jordan. Just DO it…‘
He wasn’t buying it.
So many IMPORTANT things happen pre-Christmas holiday that we absolutely cannot forget.
Hello mashed potatoes, broccoli rice, green bean casserole, buttermilk pie, buttery dinner rolls, Aunt Beeki’s tamale cornbread..
I am weird about poultry, so the bird of the year gets the tee-ninsy-est place next to the mashed potatoes. Clarify: Chicken is great, fine, okay..but turkey.. I’m talking about the ‘real‘ kind, not out of the deli section at Walmart. It’s just not my thing.
Thanksgiving is THE best (eating) day of the year.
OH. And the cutest twins on the planet (I am biased, of course..) celebrate the best day of their (my?) lives on the 6th of December.
Not to mention the elaborate decor, lights, MUSIC, cheesy TV movies (the mother in law is excellent about DVR’ing ALL the Lifetime ‘..I’ll be home for Christmas, but not without drama..’ movies.)
Christmas shopping (I’m a pro online..)
Decadent dessert – only because it is (right around) Christmas.
Time with family. The best part.
HOW very excited am I to bake and decorate sugar cookies with my sweet littles. The hundreds of homemade iced cookies and deliveries to friends and family that came out of my mom’s kitchen growing up is something that I cannot wait to share with Parker and Jolie.
The idea of Christmas is wonderful. The REASON for the season is number One.
But.. lets not rush. Lets hold on to this time of year for as long as these next 44 days will allow.
