The apple doesn't fall far from....

Have you ever had that moment in your life when you realize you ARE your MOTHER? It can be terrifying or exhilerating.

For example, my Mom goes crazy with decorations at Christmas. The bathrooms are even full of seasonal cheer.

Nick has always made fun of my copious amounts of Christmas decorations. Well, we put all of our decorations in our spacious townhouse and realized we didn't have as many as we once thought. So, this definetely called for a trip to Michaels. Thirty dollars later and a basket full of stuff I hummed merrily home (listening to Christmas music of course!).

This morning I was happily stringing garland and poinsettias all over when it hit me. I am my Mother. I wasn't quite sure how to react. I realized it was a good thing. My Mom is one of the most creative, organized and fun people I know. She always has a smile on her face and makes everyone around her laugh.

Thanks Mom. Your influence is very prevalent in our home this time of year! It is "Christmasized."

Give your Mom a hug or a call today.

I love it! I am with you and your mom when it comes to decorating for Christmas, especially while Christmas tunes are playing (loudly) throughout the home.

By the way, sorry I wasn't able to make it to your place yesterday. I ended up staying at Ali's preschool so that I could get some materials together for a couple of crafts for their upcoming Christmas party. I was bummed when I realized how late it was when I was finished. I would have had very little time to stop by. Although it didn't work out this time, please let me know if you're going to do it again in the future.

You are so funny. I am not quite my mother. She loves the Christmas decorations too. I love them too, but we move to much to have too much stuff. Christmas will be fun this year with Amelia a little bigger. Can't wait to see more blog pics and your Christmas card is way cute!
