It is like Santa’s Workshop in our house right now! Cookies are baking, presents are being wrapped. The tree is lit and the outside of the house is decorated in Christmas lights. The unseasonably warm temperatures make it seem more like Spring and since neither of boys believe in Santa anymore, it seems a bit odd. Both of the boys are good about keeping this quiet since all of their cousins still believe. The gifts are under the tree and they are being pretty good about not peeking!! I am hoping that they are like me….I love surprises so I never look ahead of time. It takes all the fun away!
Drew and I went out today and he finished his shopping. Dave has some last minute things to get tomorrow. This morning, we visited the cemetery to bring ornaments from mom and Francine, At the cemetery there was a huge tree filled with ornaments from people’s loved ones. There were some already there for mom and Francine. This has always been my favorite time of the year, and even without mom and Francine here with us, I think most of us are getting caught up in the holiday spirit. It is definitely what mom would have wanted.
