The time of year when stuff begins to matter....

As October wraps her cold hands around our waists, this can only mean a few things;

A. Football season is winding up, and all teams (except Toronto ha ha ) are jockeying for playoff positions. I love going to the stadium when it's cooler out. This to me is true football weather for true football fans!

B. Shopping takes on a completely different meaning. For most of the year, I wonder around the malls, completely disinterested in the stores. As we tally up our Christmas lists, I begin to take notice in the shops as I carefully scout out potential gifts for my family.

C. Sweatpants and socks. Most of the year, neither one of these touch my legs. As the weather turns, I look forward to putting on my favorite pair of sweatpants as soon as I get in the door.
Now if only I can get Ellery to keep socks on her little feet......

D. Christmas day. Ellery is getting to be that age now where we can ask her if Santa is on his way. This should be fun!

What is it about that? I walk in the door, shuck off the pants to warm stretchy pants in the winter.

*cough, cough, COUGH*

I'm sorry, I was just choking.

Yeah, that's right, choking! About YOU carefully scouting out potential gifts for your family.

That is the biggest load of hooey I've ever heard...EVER...

Ah, you are in for the best Christmas ever this year! Miss E is going to be so much fun! I remember Christmas suddenly transforming for us when we had little ones. I am really jealous!

Ali - I hope he shocks you with something really really cool!
