{tradition}

I just remembered that "A Christmas Story" will be on all day tomorrow on TBS!

I had never seen that movie until the hubs and I met and now it isn't Christmas without seeing it at least once. You'll shoot your eye out kid! I can't wait until the boys are old enough to enjoy it with us, bundled up in blankets on the couch with hot chocolate and a fire in the fireplace.

I think the mother-in-law and I are going to get together tomorrow and make Christmas cookies. Maybe that will be a new tradition for us too. The holidays may be hectic now that we're parents, but they are infinitely more enjoyable in a way that I can't put into words.

Santa drove past me today in a red car decked out in big antlers and a red nose attached to the grill. Awesome. For some reason it made me tear up...I don't know what's wrong with me other than new mom holiday sentimental-ness. Yeah...I just made up a word.

I'm already thinking about how I want to decorate the house next year. I'm thinking lots of felt and paper ornaments for a kid friendly tree. I also want to make a new wreath for our front door. Something like this..

Or this...


And I definitely want to make oodles of yarn pom poms because they are just too cute!!



Oh and I want one of these looms so I can make cutesie yarn flowers like Danielle Thompson! (I just saw that the looms are sold out...boo!)

Danielle is a constant source of inspiration for me. Check out what she did this year with honeycomb bells!

Genius!

And the striped socks for stockings. *swoon*

I could post photos of her stuff all day. Seriously.

Is it weird that I can't wait for Christmas 2009?!

Nope, you are not weird! I already have so many plans for next Christmas! My family thinks I am nuts!
Merry Christmas!

Not weird at all :) I'm so excited for you to get to celebrate your first Christmas as a Mom! I was so hoping to be able to hold my baby boy by Christmas day, but it appears he is holding on me!

Since I've been so not in the Christmas spirit this year, I'm already planning for Christmas 09 and all the great things we will be able to do with our *almost* 1 year old.

Merry Christmas!
