Yesterday coming home from my shopping spree I realized I'm really a scrooge this year.  I only put up one tree!  But I do have both my Christmas quilts out. 
I have literally no other decorations up or out, there are no stockings hanging, no Christmas lights on the house, no wreath on the door, no holiday baking going on....nothing.  It was really very depressing and then I thought, I can't wait till I go "home" to mom and dad's in Nevada, MO.  There will Christmas cheer everywhere!  There will be decorations, lights, trees, stockings, and lots of Christmas goodies to eat.  Best of all there will be family to see, especially my two granddaughters!  I can't wait! 

I also decided on my drive home there would be no more Christmas' like this one again.  I will take time out of my busy schedule to decorate, cook, bake, and make gifts.  I remember 5 years ago when we moved into this house in Brownwood, TX from Benton AR.  It was almost to the day.  December 19th is when the moving truck arrived in Brownwood.  I vowed then that I wouldn't move again that close to Christmas for the same reasons.... no tree, no lights, not baking, etc.  And again, I so looked forward to going home and couldn't wait to get there.  Even though I will have lots of Christmas cheer next year, I still can't wait to go home to the familiar, comfortable place with family and celebrate The Reason for the Season.
