The holidays are freakin’ coming!

The holidays are coming.


We already breezed pass Halloween & Thanksgiving. And now it seems that if you didn’t already jump on the Christmas train, you will be left behind.

At least that’s how I feel.

I know it’s about family and love and friendship and remembering the REASON for the season.

But my inner (wannabe) Martha Stewart just y e a r n s to have the tree up by the first of the month, the (electronic) fireplace blazing, and the Christmas-scented candles burning.

Our Christmas tree last year (2013)!

While that vision of a beautiful, elegantly decorated Christmas home is taunting me, I have to take a deep breath and remember that it’s not about the material things… But I LOVE the gift wrapping, the cookie baking, and the carol singing!!!

Ok, maybe not singing OUT LOUD, but definitely blasting N’Sync’s Christmas Pandora channel!

To lighten my whacky mood and ease the tension and pressure I can’t help but place on myself, I stumbled across this video made by What’s Up Moms. I absolutely LOVE those girls.


It was HILARIOUS! I won’t tell you about it. Just watch it for yourself:

It was so funny, I had to watch it AGAIN… AND show the hubby!

Flashback to a year ago!!!

Christmas this year will certainly be a different experience.

Last year, they were AWESOME helpers. This year, I’m betting they’ll be tiny terrors.


One of my ALL TIME favorite pictures. Those Santa hats were the CUTEST thing!


They were so tiny and helpless! Oh, the much calmer days when they didn’t need much besides food and a little cuddling. Now it’s all about being drama kings and screaming for no reason at all!

Tell me what you thought of the “Holidays are Coming” video! Loved it? Hated it?

Who’s ready for the holidays?

Who’s NOT ready for the holidays? Me!!!

I'd love to hear from you!
