Too Early for Christmas?

I can't believe it's already November. Yesterday we celebrated the hubster's birthday. He's a Halloween baby. My parents came over, and we had a nice dinner complete with a Halloween cake for him. When the boys were younger, I always decorated for Halloween with witches, ghosts, gourds, lanterns,  everything. As they got older, they didn't appreciate the decor. And so, I stopped at just having a pumpkin on the breakfast table and a fall leaves scented candle in the kitchen.

I am really looking forward to the holidays this year. So many surprises, but oh, I can't share them with you yet. I know this may sound premature but I want to put up the Christmas tree already. Why the heck not? Unlike Halloween, the boys love it when I decorate for Christmas. When we put up the tree last year, November 16, some of my facebook friends wondered if I forgot about Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving. But I love Christmas more. Everything about Christmas is magical. And this year, it will be extra magical. Why can't we eat turkey next to the Christmas tree?

So in honor of Christmas, sorry Thanksgiving, I put on this green blouse. I was planning on pairing it with a red jacket, but I didn't want to look overly festive on the first day of November.

I can't promise that I will refrain from Christmas colors for too long.
