It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year....

Well, another Thanksgiving has come and gone I must say that through the whole thing I was most thankful to be home and settled and feeling content again. We had a very nice and uneventful one, visiting with family and eating too much great food. I wouldn't have had this past weekend any other way.

But now it's time to start thinking about Christmas. For those of you who don't know, Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year. Some people who know me may think this is because I like getting gifts (which believe me, I do) but the real reason is that I just love everything about Christmas. I love to buy and give gifts to my friends and family. I love the family gatherings. I love cold weather. I love the way that music seems to sound different and somehow better when the weather gets cold. I love sitting outside with a steaming hot cup of coffee in the cold. I love Christmas music. I love spending Christmas with Lindsey. I love decorating our tree and this year for the first time, our house. I love setting up my Christmas village. I love those old clay-mation Christmas specials that ran when I was a kid, and I love a Charlie Brown Christmas. There isn't much about Christmas I don't like. It's a really great time of's the most wonderful time of the year.

But of course, I'm like anyone else. I love getting presents. Here are my Christmas lists for 2006 in all their glory. I keep these things strictly updated all year long so they are current and accurate.
