Those are all the things I do BECAUSE Santa Clause is coming to town. It's a lot of work to make like that Jolly Old Fellow...presents, cookies, reindeer food, house clean, stockings hung, blah blah blah!
I sound like I am not excited about Christmas, however I am truly over joyed that it's right around the corner. I love Christmas SO much and am so excited for all the things that we get to do to get ready for the season...I just think that it's funny that those are all the things in the song that they don't want the kids to do, yet we probably all fall victim as adults of doing just those things during the holiday season. :) I know I have!
One thing to be thankful for this holiday season is that there isn't an overweight, slightly bossy, old man wearing a fuzzy red outfit and eating everything in sight telling us what not to do in order to get what we want this Christmas!
Maybe other years I would be a little more forgiving of the old guy...but this year, not so much! LOL
To your husband: "First we'll make snowangels for 2 hours, then we'll to go skating, then we'll eat a roll of Tollhouse cookie dough as fast as we can, and then to finish, we'll snuggle!"
And in the event that you're not in the mood to snuggle...I suggest saying: "You Stink. You smell like beef and cheese! You don't smell like Santa."
To your Mother-in-law: "Morning Sarah, that's a very nice purple dress, it's very purpley"
Just for the fun of it: "Francisco! That's fun to say! Francisco. Frannncisco. Franciscooo."
"The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear."
Let me know how those work for ya...
Merry Christmas everyone! God bless you and your families!
