I'm living my dream life, spending my days with my three sweet kids on the rocky coast of Maine...

boy2001 is a loveable 2nd grade LEGO brick master. An average week includes a round of golf, some time at the track with a smidgeon of Nintendo DS time.

girl2004 is a Care Bears enthusiast when she's not twirling to imaginary ballet, she's gleefully giggling to pink princess daydreams or requesting baking sessions.

girl2006 is an Elmo and Little People Fanatic, she insists on wearing tights and dresses everyday, as well as reading our 'I Love You' books everyday. She shares my love for Little House on the Prairie.

My personal goals are to go back to school for my Masters, possibly in Library Studies or Biblical Languages.

Smokey is our playful pup, half chihuahua, half rat terrier he's a handsome dog, although very good with the children Smokey does have his issues!

Chexter is our roborovski hamster, over a year old he's recently started to nip a little!

It just isn’t Christmas around here until…

December 1, 2006

It just isn’t Christmas around here until we put the tree up… Christmas on!  Maine is so dark and gloomy in the winter.  If you’re ever going to be depressed, it will be in the winter.  A lot of people walking around grumpy and not smiling! 

I have been in the habit since boy2001 was born to:

* get up early (4-6am dependent on size of turkey) to prepare the turkey

* watch the Thanksgiving Day parade

* have a feast for lunch with all the trimmings

* then working off some calories lugging our artificial tree, ornaments, Santas, assorted decorations from the garage, basement, etc…  boy2001 was really helpful this year, he put most of the tree together while I was still gathering everything whilst DH was watching football with the girls (they seem to enjoy it).

By the time all the decorating is done I’m officially pooped and plop down to admire my work and spend time with the family for a few hours before the dinner plates have to get to the microwave.

This is a post for the ongoing blogging carnival of the Red Hot Bloggers.  This carnival is being hosted by Katelyn’s Holiday Ideas blog.
