It's amazing when my 5-year-old comes home talking about the history behind MLK day. When I was in Kindergarten, we learned our color...

Happy November

Wholly Frickin' Moley.....November is here! How did that happen?

You know what this means? Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! Then Christmas!
Wasn't it just Christmas? Or am I time warped?

So when do most of you officially start pulling out the holiday decorations? Do you wait till the day after Thanksgiving, or do you get a head start so you can enjoy it longer?

We have an artificial tree, mainly because of allergies, but also because I hate the waste that goes on in this country. Well that....and vacuuming up pine needles is not high on my priority list.

My tree's full of different decorations. It's pre-lit, and full of my son's home-made goodies or trinkets from all the places I've lived or visited. We've got glass blown lava ornaments that are the most beautiful decorations I own. We also have little mini disco balls, in honor of my husband's music background.

Our tree is a montage of our family from interests to travels, and I love it when it's up. So I, for one, will not wait until Thanksgiving. I want to enjoy it on a dark night, with a soft glow from it's lights, while I drink hot chocolate with my family. It's the only time of year we get to do that.

Each year is new to my son, who although remembers each holiday season, gets to grow into a new one each year. I'm amazed it's November, but welcome it with open arms. I'm so excited to spend this holiday with my family!!!
