Is it Really Almost December?

I cannot believe that December is upon us. I mean seriously WHERE the heck did 2011 go? I mean really!? It kinda scares me a little at how quickly time seems to be passing by these days. I feel like I blink and it's a new day, new month, new year. Sometimes I think it would be nice for time to just slow down once in a while.

This weekend will be tree time for us. I love driving around to the different tree lots to find the perfect tree for us. We will probably pop in a Christmas movie like Elf or A Christmas Story while we put up the tree and decorate it and the rest of the house. Hopefully Chris will be feeling well enough this weekend (he has been sick in bed since Sunday night) to get the lights up outside as well. I get giddy just thinking about all of it, I really do love this time of year.

Next thing on my list once the house is taken care of is our Christmas picture. I am sure you are all very aware that we send out a photo card every year and yes that photo includes Belle. Often we make her look silly with antlers or some such on her head. She is NEVER impressed with such antics.

What should probably be higher on my list is my Christmas shopping. I usually am way more ahead in that regard than I am right now. I usually have a lot of it bought and ready to be wrapped by now. Right now I don't even know what am I getting people. Definitely something I need to get busy organizing over the next couple weeks.

Now if we could only get some snow I would be one happy camper.

This time of year I also usually get into one of those reflective moods where I think of the past year and what I have and haven't done. Figure out where I need to get better in my life and set new goals for myself. I am sure there will be a post coming your way about this in the coming weeks. Until then, enjoy the beginning of this Christmas season.

I totally agree! I have no clue how this year is almost nearly over. I think when you are a kid it's easier to keep track of the year because of all the school breaks, but now as an adult you don't get those breaks. I'm trying to finish off my wedding thank you cards while trying to get Christmas underway. This weekend is the tree and lights for us too. Hopefully then it will feel more like Christmas.

I do that reflective thing to. I think for both of us, it's not just the end of a calendar year, but also the end of a year of our life, you know? With my birthday falling so close to January 1st, I find that I am even more reflective than other people I know who celebrate their birthdays throughout the rest of the year.

Enjoy your holiday decorating! We'll be in Whistler this weekend (if Kevin's feeling well enough...) so we'll definitely have snow!
