It Feels Like Christmas

23 Dec

Christmas Countdown: Two Days.

I haven’t wrapped a single present.
I haven’t written the cards for my family yet.
The only thing I have figured out is what dinner and breakfast contributions I’m making to the family over the next few days and what outfit I’ll wear on Christmas Day. (I know, silly to plan such things but you’d plan too if Darling was your mom and snaps photos as soon as you walk down the stairs!)
We have rain instead of snow, though I’m holding out for a White Christmas.
Despite the unpreparedness on my behalf, I’m giddy with the Christmas spirit today.

Packages have poured in the door from friends and family all over the country.
There are plans to meet new friends and old alike over my break as well as som much needed Nora-time.
My family has ben caught whispering to one another the last few days about last minute presents and secret surprises.
We are ready to bask in the joy, spirt and love that has been bestowed upon us this holiday season.

In honor of one of my favorite Christmas tales and movies, here’s a unique spin on the Ghost of Christmas Present from A Muppet Christmas Carol, “It Feels like Christmas,”:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my dear bloglies (a word I accidentally used the other day and rather like. Lovely Bloggy friend is what I tried to say but this came out. ) I’ll be back next week with “The Weekend” Feature and more!

    Yeah for the movie clip!!! The Muppets Christmas Carol is one of my all time fave holiday movies. The others are Miracle of 34th Street (the original-obv), Scrooged, Mr. Magoo’s A Christmas Carol and Elf!

    I’m down to just a few hours to wrap. You’d think it would be easy since I’m doing a lot of gift card cop-outs this year, but I like to put them in actual packages so there’s something to open.

    Probably ought to start.

    Merry merry!

    This was seriously the least Christmas-ey Christmas ever. Not bad necessarily, just… different?
