TV Days of Christmas

I must admit, one of my favorite things about the holidays are all the Christmas specials on TV. True, most of them have nothing to do with the reality of what Christmas truly is--a day to celebrate the birth of the Savior, but I like them just the same. They give me that "no place like home feel" and I recall memories of watching them with my family as a kid. This year has been fun as Alex has now joined me in my quest to watch as many hokey "Santa movies" ( as he calls them) as possible.

The days before Christmas.....

Life is crazy! Or maybe I am crazy. I sit down to do something and my mind starts to wander and the next thing I know 2 hours have past and all I've done is watch mindless TV and eat reduced-fat wheat thins. Maybe I am just in Christmas overload since we'll be spending the holidays in Iowa. My house is tree due to aforementioned holiday Christams cards are purchased ( but not addressed or sent due to impending Duffin family photo shoot. I bought all my "Arizona people" gifts. Hmmmm....maybe I am not crazy...maybe I am just exhausted!! That sounds much better.
