It's On Y'all...


The Christmas Countdown that is. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY., at least one of my children asks "How many days until Christmas". I could answer in the thousands, and they'd still ask every day. We've already visited Santa at the mall. Last night we had dinner at Piedmont Row and marveled that all of the lights were up...wreaths, the center tree, the big tree in the Piedmont Natural Gas building. Today my four year old boy looked longingly at all of the ENORMOUS Christmas inflatables in Wal-Mart, and Christmas tree lots are starting to take shape on every corner! It's coming y'all...and fast...38, 37, 36, 35, 34...

Blessings,
