Snow Days with my little ones ~ staying in pajamas all day, drinking hot chocolate and having picnics by the fireplace…
Warm scarves, earmuffs & cute hats in bright, fun colors!
Cozy nights with the hubby, catching up on”us time”.
“How I Met Your Mother” – love it!!!!
On that same note – I LOVE Netflix.
Yummy body lotions ~ love feeling all hydrated and fabulous when it’s dry & crisp outside.
PEDICURES! Yes – every month, all year ‘roud. I went with a dark pewter polish last week.
Getting photos from Christmas printed, labeled and mailed to extended family to keep them up to date on the little ones.
Baking. An indoor activity with the 2-year old that yields delicious results.
Things I don’t get: Thing 2
People who toss their Christmas trees out on the curb the night of or day after Christmas. Really, people? Really??? This tree grew for years and years to give you a few weeks of delicious smelling in-home sparkliciousness. The least and I repeat LEAST you can do is wait until New Year’s…or a respectable amount of time after Christmas day – 3 days minimum.
We usually like to wait till the week after New Year’s Eve. Technically, January 6th is King’s Day ~ the 12th and final day of Christmas. And we love the decor and the fuzzy, newly made Christmas memories so we try to postpone the cleanup as long as possible. But seeing trees on the street on December 26th is just sad. Let your tree fulfill its’ destiny and give it due appreciation for it’s purpose. 5-10 years of growth for 3-5 weeks of your happiness. Respect the tree, enjoy the glitter. Don’t be a grouch and get rid of/pack away everything holiday related AS SOON AS the clock strikes midnight on the 25th. Humbug to those who do, though I’m sure there are reasons, my personal opinion (and that’s all this is) is humbug to you.
I’m already counting the months till we get our tree for the 2011 Christmas season, and our two-year-old is noting each and every time we leave the house, “No more Christmas lights, no more Christmas trees – maybe later!” (meaning later this year). Yes, sir, little man! Definitely later!
