Makin' Mamma Proud

....or not. My mom taught me well in every single category. Now, if I chose to follow her teachings or not was always a different story. I will however inform you (and you Mom) that I took full heed to her counsel regarding when to start listening to Christmas music. I've been listening for 3 weeks now. Yesterday the music put me in the mood for some crafts. I'm not very crafty, so a paper chain is all I could come up with. But you can bet I made a paper chain for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and OF COURSE Christmas! They adorn my home and I got to subtly start decorating for Christmas without actually throwing up the tree! I love this time of year!

You're a good person. My level of patience for 24/7 Christmas music is December 23 - December 26. No more..no less. I've been thrilled that I have been able to enjoy October without it. And we really should be able to enjoy Thanksgiving without Christmas everywhere.

There. Now you know I'm not that great of a person. :))

It was good meeting you on New Years.

I also am a fan of the paper chain. Classic.
