As I write this I sit under the glow of our Christmas tree.
Still a novelty considering that we put up our tree last night, only 10 days to spare until the big day.
Life has been hectic which is generally the theme for this time of year.
But amid the chaos, we have packed in some holiday cheer.
We kicked off the festivities in mid-November with the Riverwoods Lighting, spied Santa and listened to a 10-minute version of "Corn Dogs" by Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband that was about 9 minutes too long.
Post Thanksgiving, I spent an afternoon volunteering at the Giving Tree at the mall.
Oh, gyro. So delicious.
Thursday night is also Greek music night and we had a personal serenade the length of our entire dinner.
It has melted since but the forecast is looking pretty white.
Come on, snow! I really, really, really want a white Christmas this year. Pretty please?
