. . . well. . .let's be honest. It's felt like Christmas since November 1 when the music started at the store. I love Christmas. . . I'm not someone who is bothered by Christmas starting the 1st of November. I love decorating for Christmas. . . it was always a lot of fun growing up and this year it is super fun to decorate our own HOUSE for Christmas. Even Jonathan has enjoyed it. I'm not big on collections. . . however. . . I do collect a few things like nativity sets and these beautiful ornaments my mom buys us every year for Christmas. They are by Jay Strongwater. Beautiful no?
