I am looking forward to Christmas!

This is my favorite Christmas movie. I had a friend once who had never seen "It's A Wonderful Life" and I couldn't believe it. At that point she was going to keep it that way. Do you know anyone who has never seen this movie? It's been a few years so maybe she has had a weak moment. How can you not watch it at least once? I love Jimmy Stewart and I love Donna Reed. I watched "The Donna Reed Show" on Nick at Night, it was a wonderful show. And Jimmy Stewart was good in everything he did. So enjoy the trailer. I where did we put that movie?

I went to Kansas a week and a half ago for my Uncle's funeral (he is so missed). My cousin gave these kitchen towels to me that she embroidered. Don't you just love 'em?! They are so special I am not sure if I could bring myself to use them.

You know Christmas is close when...

The radio station that plays Christmas music every year has already started playing it. They had a vote on their website to see when people wanted them to start playing it and one of the options was "now", and yes that is what I voted. Although, this is the time they usually start so they must have been seeing if they need to change when they start. I would listen to Christmas music all year long if my hubby would let me. Actually, he tells me he doesn't care if I listen to it when he is at work, he just doesn't need to be listening to it until the day after Thanksgiving.

I Can Hardly Believe...

Thanksgiving is 13 days away. Where does the time go. It is the best time of year. Mark made sure we have a place for our Christmas tree in the living room. He kids me about me wanting the tree up now since we have the place prepared for it. We have seen houses that do have their trees up and the Christmas lights on outside. The Christmas Spirit seems to be hitting people early this year. I don't have a problem with it. Makes me think of the Nat King Cole song that goes
"...far away across the sea in sunny Italy, there's a quaint little town, not a clock has been wound for over a century. They don't know the time or year and no one seems to care, this is the reason the Christmas season is celebrated all year. Buon Natale..."
I love the Christmas album we had by Nat King Cole growing up it was played over and over again. I am looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas.
