The tree and decorations are up. The lights are on outside. Christmas music on the strings playing quietly in the background. The fire is dying down. The kids are in bed. (And it's only December 2nd!) I'll be honest, Christmas used to depress me. But after getting married and having kids has changed all of that. Now that our kids are old enough to get excited about Christmas, it's a bit infectious. I find myself not getting nauseous in department stores when I hear the Christmas muzak.
Of course, if I got to hang out with these two after my shopping, I think I would definitely feel better about the whole experience!
