The Day After Thanksgiving....

7:45 a.m. Mom and dad try to sleep in and the kids play in the basement.

8:30 a.m. Kids catch wind of conversations....decorations? tree? Christmas?

9 a.m. Tomma starts sobbing when he realizes TODAY isn't actually Christmas. "But you said it's after Thanksgiving and after it snows!" (there was about .5 inch of snow on our cars this morning).

9:05 a.m. Wipe away tears on Tomma and try to explain the concept of "The Christmas Season" and counting down to Jesus' birthday.

9:15 a.m. Start bringing down boxes of Christmas decorations. Kids circle around us screaming "Woo! Waahooo!"

9:30 a.m. Kids bring up ghetto blaster from basement with random Christmas music CD. Start jamming out to "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire...." while they dance around.

10 a.m. Realize nothing will be accomplished with kids flailing around us. Curious George Christmas movie is put on while we work on getting the tree and lights up so they can do ornaments.

10 a.m. - 10:20 a.m. Asked about 45 times if it's time to do ornaments yet.

11 a.m. Rest for a moment and stare at the lovely tree. Move on to next project...and next project...and next project.

4:15 p.m. Look around at all our hard work and feel excited.

6 p.m. Head out to local tree lighting ceremony for some hot coco and a first glimpse of Santa....

Christmas with a three and five year old. This is going to be a good one....

I'm a 39 year old stay-at-home mom. I have a 9 year old daughter and a 7 year old son. I have lived in the big city and in the mountains, but am happy to be back in the Midwest, raising the fam. I enjoy laughing, wine, bad karaoke, US Weekly, running, cemetaries, cheese sticks and short hair-dos. In my previous life, I was class-clown and a wanna-be comedian. In my professional life, I'm a journalism major with 10 years of marketing and PR experience. I dream of being a cast member on Saturday Night Live and working at Disney World as Snow White.
