I get a tad bit excited with Fall rolls around. There is something about the cooler weather that wakes me up and gets me in this relaxed state. As we all know with the Fall comes the "Fun Holidays". We have Halloween here in October which is OK but then in November we get Thanksgiving!! Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what we all have and not just the stuff in our life. The First of November also begins the time I start the real decorating! We have a lot of Halloween decor but it does nothing for me. Its when I take that down and starting putting things up like me Granny's glass turkey or the little Thanksgiving people that it sinks in that Christmas is around the corner. Last year was the first time I put up Christmas stuff before Thanksgiving. It started because we had a vacation planed after the Thanksgiving weekend and I knew getting things up would be rushed. I was so glad I got everything up and we were really able to enjoy it. This year as soon as the Halloween came down Thanksgiving and Christmas started going up. My boys are 100% on board with my decorating frenzy. They have even been asking what I was going to make for them.
