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.

I can't imagine having two major holidays so close together...I think I like having them spaced a bit more, gives one time to get ready for the next! (or time to work off all those yummy desserts! lol) I've been talking Christmas lately to try and put me in the mood, but it's not working as well as it usually does, but I'm not giving up! lol I think all the sunny weather we've had has delayed my enthusiasm...just doesn't seem the season when the sun is shining non-stop, but I don't want to say bring on the rain and snow either! lol
