This holiday season is slow to come this year in our home. Usually by now our home is fully Christmastized. This year not so much. With Mom passing in May and Bill's Mom just one month ago I'm finding it harder to get myself in the mood. Oh we went out shopping for outside decorations and dropped a load of $ and put them up and they look nice. I figured it would be hard this Christmas. Bill is not one for showing much emotion when it comes to death..he is a you deal with it and go on kinda guy. I try to be...but sometimes.....when a certain song comes on the radio or you see something or taste something of the season...well it's hard. Being away from all my family during the holidays has always been hard. I moved to NY 8 years ago and haven't made it home yet for one holiday. Well thanks for listening to me ramble.
Here's a couple photos so far of our holiday. I haven't really even started my inside decorations.

This is the centerpiece I picked up at Lowe's for our dining room table. Sitting on one of my
I had the day off work unexpectedly yesterday as both of the children I sit for were home with the flu. So I started some holiday baking. Bill has quite the list still he'd like to see me make. ;)
I hope all your holiday decorating and baking are coming along! I love reading everyone's blogs out here and viewing all your gorgeous photos! :)
