An Arthur Christmas

I think officially Christmas has begun at our house.

A wonderful day with Christmas music on the radio and Glögg in our mugs,—a full-on Christmas extravaganza. Knäck and kola made, Christmas cards ordered, decorations are up—inside and out—and the tree is in in place—in all its glory. We were hoping to have had time to cut our own tree this year, but with a house full of sicklings, that was way too ambitious for today. A more lowkey trip to home depot was more what we could muster. There is always next year, right?

The tree ended up being a complete nightmare to decorate when Campbell quickly began to remove ornaments instead of putting them (of course, the really fragile ones too!) Three hours and two broken decorations later, the tree is just perfect and we are totally exhausted! Thank god this is a short week for us both.

Next weekend will probably be just as crazy. Heading back into the city on Friday for a full day of Christmas fun with the family, our annual St. Lucia celebration at Central Park West on Saturday and then Breakfast with Santa on Sunday morning. Plus, I just found out that there are plans to have cake for Rich's dad on Sunday night. I'm going to need a whole week of sleep after this. Luckily I'm taking some time off in between Christmas and New Years for some much needed R&R.

Peace and Love to you all.
