A hodge podge of cute family activity, and is it too early to start listening to Christmas music?

*flips through animal board book with Anne*

"Woof woof!"

"Yes, that's a Dalmatian on the "Spotted" page, he's a doggie. He says 'woof woof.'"

"Woof woof!"

"I'm pretty sure that's not what the antelope says. But I don't what he says, so..."

"Woof woof!"

"No, the panther doesn't say 'woof woof.' I'm not exactly certain what the panther says, but whatever it is, it's much more sinister." *attempts growling noise*

"Woof woof!"


*Mike readies for his morning*

"That was a good night with Anne, huh? Especially coming off of those 2 tough nights earlier in the week."

"It was."

"I mean, she did fuss that one time at 10:30, but she went back to sleep."

"She got up at 10:30?"

"Yeah, don't you remember? You started crying."

"I did not."

"You did, but I knew it would be fine. You went right back to sleep."

"I don't think this actually happened."

"It did."


This happens every year. The week before Halloween comes and I want to break out my holiday playlist. I don't know what it is, I mean, I'm always enjoying the fall and all the fabulous weather and activities that it entails, I don't need to rush Christmas.

But I do it every year. My husband is completely scandalized, because he's all for keeping all holidays within their proper season and savoring them. He doesn't think you should listen to a beat of Christmas music nor glimpse a lighted tree until after Thanksgiving.

I will grant, prior to Halloween is too early. I make myself hold off, but it isn't easy I tell you. However, the instant November 1st comes, all bets are off. I already told Mike to prepare himself for Hank and I starting the Christmas movies in November, because otherwise we don't have enough time to watch them all. We own a LOT of Christmas movies.

And with Christmas gift knitting in full swing, I mean, who can blame me?

I love this time of year. :) That is, until mid-December when I'm cursing all yarn that is destined to still be knit or crocheted into a Christmas gift...
