Ewww, I just can't shake Christmas off, it was pretty spectacular this year celebrating with three threes. Except we are all asking for cookies like all the time suddenly. Like we just expect chocolate everyday.
Anyway, I was super jealous of one Super Mom's idea for the 12 Books of Christmas: 1 new book for baby each of the 12 days leading up to Christmas. She started this tradition on her first Mommy Christmas and every year I've thought, damn, that's a good idea, why didn't I think to do this? Then seemed everybody was doing it. Trend setter!
Rant: OK, she is really starting to bug me . . . I mean fresh local vegetables and fruit always on big display (and her kids actually eat it!), organic this or the other whooped into delicious platters, home spun stocking stuffers, well adjusted children, you know, one of those mindful mamas. Sickening. (Hug, kiss, love you!)
But Jerry and I thought of a great new tradition of our very own beginning December 2010. Every day for 12 days until Christmas Day, we will break out a bottle of wine, one we've never tried before. That's 12 bottles in 12 days. Easy and special and meaningful seeing how we also celebrate our wedding anniversary on Christmas Eve. Feel free to steal my idea (I'll remind all next year) and I promise to blog about each day!
