I don’t know about you, but Christmas makes me tired. I also try not to saturate myself on the holidays, so I’m chopping this list in half to present five holiday books that I like…and five holiday movies. Because that’s just the way I roll.
It’s the first day of December, so that means American Thanksgiving is over and we lived through another November. For the more religious of us, that means we’re now firmly in Advent. There are only 24 shopping days til Yule. Are you ready?

She’s already holding […]
We don’t have a Christmas Tree this year. We don’t really have any space in the living room, and we haven’t really had a lot of time to get festive with work changes and stuff. Basically, we’re spending Christmas anywhere but home due to the Family Migratory Pattern of events. So for the next couple […]
