It was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen.
I'm not quite as on the ball as my aunt, but I aspire to her greatness. I aspire.
I get that not everyone shares this view. Braeden told me his friends thought it was weird that I decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. (Who didn't see that coming? My kids talking with their friends about how weird I am.)
But I love it. I'm the early bird and Christmas is the worm. It combines everything I like: planning ahead and buying gifts and Christmas! What's not to love?
Yesterday I wrapped the first gift. It was a rather big gift for Adam (Curious, Adam?) and I wasn't sure where to hide it so I decided to wrap it.
My mom told me "only Thelma" would take a picture of Christmas decorations. I don't think that's strictly true but I took a picture of the first gift because I think my mom would also think "only Thelma" would do that.
When you're the middle-ish child in a big family I guess you'll do anything to get attention.
