I might as well tell you right off the bat...I'm a bit of a perfectionist. Friends and family have called me "Monica", ya know, Monica Geller from Friends. I guess I clean alot, cook alot and love to be the hostess. The cleaning borders a little on OCD, so my husband tells me. Should I admit that I practically follow people around with a sweeper? No really it isn't THAT bad ;). However we are approaching the time of year when all of those things come together for the trifecta. Cook. Clean. Host. I get so giddy!!
My first Thanksgiving in my little apartment I wanted to host my family. So I made all the fixings and even had the place decorated for Christmas. Complete with a sign on the front door warning everyone what they were walking into! The explosion of the North Pole in just 500 sq feet!
Then once I was married we hosted Thanksgiving again. We were in a huge farm house and had lots of room. Soooooo of course I had to decorate for Christmas before everyone came! We got a HUGE live tree! If you can't tell, for me its all about the presentation ;). For Christmas the wrapping process is just as important as the gift itself.
Once again we are hosting Thanksgiving for my family (and possibly Christmas). We've been in the middle of a kitchen/dining room remodel and can't wait to show it off. I mentioned on facebook that we had brought the Christmas items down from the attic and got the tree up already. My sister's response, "Oh wonderful (full sarcasm)...we'll be having Thanksmas or Christgiving again this year." I know she was just joking around with me, but I can see why she would be worried ;). Will there be room for everyone around the Thanksgiving table with Santa and Rudolph? haha.
Do I use too many of those winky faces? ha!
Its taken me way too long to type this. Although a two year old jumping on the couch while your trying to type is a tad distracting. No. Stop that. You'll get hurt! Get down. Fine then, when you fall off don't come crying to me! He's quite the daredevil and knows it. I love that he's so active and all boy though.
