A few weeks ago I realized Christmas was coming, but chose to ignore it because we were moving and also because everyone keeps mentioning it is BABY’S FIRST CHRISTMAS and what we are doing for BABY’S FIRST CHRISTMAS, giving me BABY’S FIRST CHRISTMAS anxiety.
We have gotten into the Christmas spirit a bit these past few days, but mostly by accident.
First we went to a Christmas Potluck with all our local friends (it was fabulous). I made a rich, ridiculous, something-my-healthy-mother-in-law-would-never-in-a-million-years-make, pumpkin Oreo dessert. It was delicious.
We also took some Christmas pictures of the chap. He was not in a smiling mood.
(Christmas Card Fail)
Then yesterday Baby Daddy brought home a tree.
We decorated it despite baby’s best efforts to eat all the ornaments.
And now I sit on a foot long to-do list, half of which involves holiday chores, wondering if maybe I didn’t unpack the box labeled “Christmas Joy.”
What’s on your Christmas To Do list? Are you in feeling the magic? Are you decking the halls, lips stained with candy cane?
If you’re in denial, don’t feel bad. We have time.
