Deck the halls

We are officially ready for Christmas, thanks entirely to my industrious husband who had the great idea to put up our decorations before we leave for our upcoming trip. If it were up to me, I would probably have procrastinated until Christmas Eve. We are flying to Indiana to spend Thanksgiving with Todd's family and stop in Denver on our way home to spend a few days with my brother's family. Since we won't be home until December 9, it will be so nice to come back to a home that's already decorated! I kept thinking it was way too early to put up Christmas decorations (as it always seems when it's still in the 70's outside), but now that they are up, we are definitely in the Christmas spirit! We have been listening to Christmas carols (fortunately there is a wonderful iTunes radio Christmas jazz station so we aren't subjected to the same 5 songs played repeatedly by 99.9KEZ), drinking our pumpkin spice lattes and peppermint mochas, and starting to watch our usual lineup of Christmas movies - A Charlie Brown Christmas, The Nativity Story, It's a Wonderful Life, and, of course, Christmas Vacation. Now if only Calvin would stop trying to eat the Christmas tree...
