Now Halloween is over, the kids are still buzzing from their sugar high, and you have a houseful of spooky decorations to take down and replace with Fall/Thanksgiving decorations.
Our thoughts start turning toward Christmas as well.
This is the time of year when my ADD goes wild!!
I am planning Thanksgiving dishes, all the while making a Christmas shopping list and deciding what baking I want to do. I even begin planning my Christmas meal.
It is funny though, it seems that the most stressful time of the year is my favorite time of year.
Things I love about this time of year:
- Fires in the fireplace
- hot cider
- busy family gatherings
- being covered in flour in my kitchen
- the smell or pumpkin and spices
- the smell of pine trees and peppermint.
- Christmas shopping (yes you heard me right)
- helping the local charities
- watching the people I love opening gifts from me and seeing the smiles on their faces.
No matter how stressed out I get
I just can't help but smile.
Maybe I need medication???
Oh well, we can debate that at a later date.
I am curious, what is your favorite part of the upcoming holiday season?
OK, let's recap what happened in my end of the blogosphere.
That was a lot of food! We loved it, I sure hope you did too.
Oh, did you notice my cool new toy? Now you can pin any picture from my blog. Just let your mouse hover over the photo and BING a Pinrest button pops up and away you go!!
Pretty cool right?
Ya well, we have already established that I am easily amused.
Annnnnnnnnnnd speaking of Pintrest....WOW I have done a TON of pinning this week. That is what happens when you are sick. I spent a few days on my sofa with tea, Kleenex, and my lap top.
I have so many DIY pins now I could stay busy for the next year if I wanted to.
Oh and kitchens. I have decided I need at least 4!!
