random tuesday: o'christmas tree

Yep, it's that time.  I know you don't want to think about it.  Heck, most people don't, especially as the days seem to be moving quicker as Claus day approaches.  But in our house, Christmas is the best, most fantastic, amazing holiday ever!

I absolutely love Christmas!

And for good reason.  It's a time for me to rejoice a new year coming.  It's my baby brothers birthday (well near it anyhow).  It's a fun time for hockey.  It is also the month hubby and I celebrate our nuptials.  We got married December 22nd, 2004 and this year we are celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary together and I cannot wait!

So this year with so much being busy with the boys, hockey, appointments for PB, my writing and so forth.  I put my tree up early and boy am I glad I did.

Pickleboy who is turning four in March is so darn excited; he could barely contain himself when we pulled out the tree.  His eyes lit up when he saw all the ornaments and it hit me how much he's changed in the past year since last Christmas.  He doesn't remember much.

This year will be different though.  This year both the boys are going to experience a different type of Christmas.  No more just buying presents.  I'm going back to basics and we are planning a couple of weeks of making gifts for those we love.

I know it might seem silly but it's important to me that the kids get a feel for what Christmas is really all about.  It's not about the commercialism or the toys or gifts.  It's about  helping out others, giving and putting your heart into the things you do for others.

But for now we are just going to enjoy the tree.

Please take a moment to visit Keely over at the UN mom for fun randomness every day of the week!
