I was Hit in the back of the head....with some Christmas Spirit


Cindy over at The Grass Can Be Greener....lobbed it at me like the professional Snow Ball thrower that she is.....but I couldn't be more thrilled....at least there isn't any cold wet stuff dripping down my back this time...

Hey...I get to Post Twice in One Day....since I obviously can't get enough of my own writing skills....ahem....

Sooooo.....Thank you so much for the Christmas Spirit Award...I am feeling awfully Cheery and Festive today I must say....

So because I'm horrible at reading directions....I have to re-read oh 3 times before I get it right...so here goes...


You must be a true Christmas lover to receive this award. The person to whom you give the award must also be in love with Christmas. You must link back to the person who gave you the award. You must list 5 things that you love about Christmas. If you can't limit it to 5 things, then keep going till you run out of space! If you're reading this, pass the award along to as many people as you like. That can be 1 or 50. It's up to you! But, you must pass it on to at least one person in order to keep the Christmas cheer going! Let your recipients know that you have tagged them by leaving them a comment.


Merry Christmas


Piece o' Cake....Fruit Cake to be exact....



Thing 1).....Christmas Candle Smells.....I adore the cinnamon, clove, evergreen and tinsle smells...and yes...Tinsle DOES have a smell.....I think.....I could smell them all year....and I do...but at least at Christmas I don't feel dumb doing it....


Thing 2)....Christmas Songs......Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole.....Church Choirs...and the little bundled up munchkins who come and knock on the door singing an interesting but thoroughly enjoyable rendition of Jingle Bells....


Thing 3)....Christmas Lights....Yes I freely admit I am one of the thousands of people that the rest of the world hates...who drive by at a snails pace to check out your Christmas lights....sometimes I drive by twice...just to make sure I've taken it all in.....


Thing 4)....Holiday Goodies....I L-O-V-E holiday baking.....I used to be so excited when my employees would bring me cookies and cakes and brownies....Carbs you say??? Who Cares....it's Christmas...let me waste my New Years resolution on trying to lose those holdiay pounds....it is OH so worth it...


Thing 5).....Others being in the Holiday mood......Yep...that's it....I love others to say Happy Holidays...or Merry Christmas....when everyone is feeling kind and generous....(of course somehow the salespeople and waitstaff get jipped)....but I like the sense of togetherness and love....


Thing 6)....and Most importantly......Jesus's Birthday.....That is the whole reason we should be celebrating....I agree Santa is pretty hard to ignore...I mean a Big overweight man in a Big Red suit...and a loud voice....but I think Jesus has his number.....


So now I"m going to Lob this award at a few more of my bloggy buddies....


1) Jody over at Team Cooper

2)Aubrey over at The Fam Five

3)Corrie at Sugarbug Baby

4) R.I.L Over at Ritch In Love

5) Mom of ONe...over at Everyday Mom

I don't think my week will calm down much, I am working tomorrow and then heading to LA for Christmas with my hubby if the Grapevine is open (hopefully there will not be an absurd amount of snow, just enough to be pretty and sparkly... I may either get fired or put in my two weeks tomorrow (called in sick on Friday) so that should be emotionally fun times... Congrats on your award! And thanks again for reading... I was to tired last night to do anything but rant... Maybe I should choose a layout that only shows the first snippet of a post so you can click "Read more"...
