Holiday Spirit!

I think it's time for me to bust out the Christmas spirit.  And by that I mean the Christmas decorations.  It's really hard to feel Christmas until your house is sprinkled in glitter, tinsel and reindeer.  Since Ben will be more involved in Christmas this year, I'm trying to get things started early so it doesn't feel so rushed.  I want to make sure we have plenty of time to sing Christmas songs, make paper snowflakes and decorate Christmas cookies.  I remember the excitement of being a kid at Christmas, and I want Ben to start feeling some of that energy.  I know he's still little, but I think he can still enjoy the excitement.

Friday night we have tickets for the Polar Express on the Portland Narrow Gauge Railroad.  I'm very, very excited to do this with Ben.  I think it will be a great way to start the holiday season and a fun adventure for a Friday night.  I'm hoping to get some cute pictures of him in his Christmas jammies, and hopefully one of two with Santa, but we'll see.

So hopefully this week I'll be able to start cleaning and decorating so Friday can really be the kick-off to Christmas.  Since Ben's toys occupy 98% of my living room, I'm going to have to put things away to make room for a tree, I hope he doesn't mind...
