Halloween has come and gone, the leaves have fallen from our trees, and the shelves are already stocked with gifts and holiday merchandise in preparation for "Black Friday". Before we know it, we'll be ringing in the year 2012. Where has the time gone?
Wait a minute, let's slow things down for a second here!
Why the rush?
Is it just me, or does this time of year always seem to rush by in a hurry?
I know one thing.
Seeing how eggnog is only available for a short stretch of time each year,
we're enjoying a glass (or two... don't tell anyone) tonight.
We always enjoyed some eggnog during Thanksgiving when I was growing up,
and over the years that's something that will not change.
Good thing my husband loves eggnog too,
because I'd sure hate to drink a whole quart all by myself. *wink, wink*
There's also no shortage of holiday candles around our place either.
In our household we do have a pretty steadfast rule
of not putting up our Christmas tree or listening
to any Christmas music until after Thanksgiving though.
You have to draw the line somewhere.
