Too much of a good thing...
In my opinion, it's quite possibly the best time of year right now. Being here on the east coast it just becomes more and more clear every year! There is something about having Thanksgiving in the heart of fall and all the hype here in the states, it just can't be beat. Being a Canadian, we celebrated Thanksgiving in October and it just isn't the same. We had all the turkey, stuffing and festivities, but it always felt like something was missing. Now we had the perfect Thanksgiving setting and we are missing the family aspect. I guess you can't have it all;) But this year we can, Tom and Marcy are joining us for ten days and arrive the day before Thanksgiving and now we have the family to celebrate with, perfect! I'm in such a Fall mood these days, pretty sure our house looks as though Fall threw up on it, just the way we like it! But we are also starting to get into Christmas. Now our only problem is trying to transcend to Christmas(the best holiday of all!!!) when we are heading to Canada for it. We've already started listening to Christmas music(restraining ourselves and waiting until November 1st) and watched our official Christmas Kickoff movie, Elf! I guess it'll just be a case of having the Christmas tree up with all the fall decor, worked last year I guess. Who ever said to much of a good thing was bad?! I am (apparently) all for it!
