have you started your holiday shopping? are you playing christmas music yet? I AM! i can't wait to get into the baking, decorating and other merriment! lou won't let me put the tree up until after thanksgiving, which i think is ridiculous but agree to only so i can then argue that it needs to stay up well past new years- the extra week or two helps me extend those warm holiday fuzzies. ok, it's possible i have holiday fever. and i'm especially anxious because our house is still in total disarray and i think that putting some christmas decor up will make me feel better about the patio furniture in our living room. i mean, hopefully?
