That's right. We're ready. For Christmas, that is. We've been doing all the types of things you're supposed to do to get ready for this time of year. Festive things.
Like Re-decorating the Christmas tree after it was knocked over (I'm the guilty party),
giving and being the recipeients of some early gifts (packed in that which was fantastic fun cleaning up),
sending cards, baking, making crafts (including enjoying many cookie cutters that were mine from my childhood),
and back outside again (being creative finding just one more article of clothing that is not wet),
coming in for hot cocoa,
getting together with friends, singing along to Christmas music (they BOTH do, hilarious), watching classic Christmas movies,
And haying. And planting corn. Haying, you ask? Planting corn in December in Maine? Well, the best farmers work on their farm year round. I clearly have the best farmers.
