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..
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!
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?!
