I love the Christmas season!
It doesn't fully feel like real Christmas-time, for many reasons. I didn't fully decorate the house & we aren't getting a real tree this year (we are NOT scrooges, ok maybe we are) & I have yet to put out our little fake one. I think not being back home makes it not feel like Christmas too. Reason being is when I lived in Fairfield, I'd go out all the time with friends & you're surrounded by holiday stuff. Not so much here. I stay in a lot more & even when I do go out, there aren't a lot of stores that inendate me with holiday stuff.
We did have a couple of Holiday get togethers so far.
1)20th EMS Kids Holiday Party (corey's work's party for the kids of the squadron)- Yup, we do not have kids & we went. lol. I want to get to know people in general & moms specifically, so I volunteered to bust out my face painting skills I picked up from working in Childcare. Then I volun-told Corey he was helping me, but really he was excited to do it. lol. We were a hit. Some kids came to us 4 times (cheeks & hands) & even most of the parents got their faces painted. lol. I did meet some cool moms & one even offered to give me some of her son's hand-me-downs!!! SCORE! It was really fun.
2)Theresa's Cookie Exchange Hooplah- okay so technically I don't think it would be considered a hooplah per se. lol. A few friends came over & we ate cookies, snacks, drank sparkling cider, decorated sugar cookies, & chatted it up. A full party it was not, but fun we did have. lol
3)20th EMS Adults Holiday Party- Yeah... this was a little depressing. lol. It was in a wierd cold, scary place, bad food, really bad music, boring host, & no bar. Not that I really care about the bar right now, but it would've been nice for the others. Tickets were only $1, so that's not bad. They could have made it a lot nicer if they charged more & I know people are willing to pay more for a nicer party. Corey's all about getting on the planning comittee for next year, lol.
Ok, quick William update for all you William Fans!
He is moving like crazy all the time! He's going to be very active, like Daddy. If you guys were here, you could probably catch him moving, it's easy to see now. He's growing fast. He gives me mild heartburn sometimes & my belly is really close to popping (kind of scary for me)! We've been taking baths almost every night, which relieves my aches & makes it easier to sleep. Yup, we cannot wait to meet William, very exciting times!
