You wanna know who's excited about Christmas only being 16 days away?
Picking out our tree.
Because it was freezing cold. So basically, we grabbed the nearest one in our price range and hoped that it looked good when we got it home.
You know what is also not exciting?
Shopping for my husband's stocking stuffers. It's my nemesis. EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR. The boys are easy. Dollar Tree or the dollar bins at Target is all it takes. I'm easy. Chapstick. A five dollar CD from Lifeway. Gum. Heck, even a lint roller will do.
But I lose sleep over Troy's on an annual basis.
You know what is exciting?
Nativities. Christmas lights. Baking cookies. Garrett planning a sleepover with his best friend. Elves moving around our house. Stockings hung on the mantle. Carol Sings and Bell Choirs. The smell of pine. And, of course, the first chapters of Luke.
