As of this weekend our Christmas tree is up and we have, for the first time, lights on our outside windows which is just thrilling to Miles. Last night I tucked him for bed and opened his blinds slightly so he could stare at them out the window. The reflection of the lights made rainbows on his blinds and he sighed happily at the site. He is a sucker for beauty.
Now it officially feels like the prelude to Christmas has begun and I have a list of holiday requirements that I will be needing to fulfill in the next three weeks:
Music that must be listened to:
Charlie Brown Christmas CD, which my children would happily listen and dance to every single night.
Nat King Cole: My husband’s number one choice, a classic.
My personal favorite for quiet reading by the Christmas tree, Over the Rhine Darkest Night of the Year
Movies that must be watched:
Rise of the Guardians
Muppet Christmas Carol
Polar Express, which had creepy animation, yes, but delights my children so what are you going to do.
Food the must be eaten:
Send me all of your peppermint flavored things, please and thank you.
Also? I am going to need to have some Christmas morning cinnamon rolls and green chili casserole
Merry, merry everyone. What is on your list?
