wow, i heart christmas. who doesn't?? i feel so christmasy today because....we found a tree. and decorated it too.
now, i realize that this will not be in any pottery barn catalog nor will it star on a home edition of martha stewart...but the lovely nature of the greeny goodness still gives M and me a sense of accomplishment and holiday cheer.
in fact, i have so much cheer that i'm singing this song at this exact moment:
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev'rywhere you go;
Take a look in the five-and-ten, glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas,
Toys in ev'ry store,
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door
(skip a couple of lines)
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that wil make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.
i know you wish you were here to listen to me belt the "carol of my heart" out. good stuff.
