I'm So Excited

Let's talk turkey. Okay, maybe not turkey, because I'm about sick to death of turkey. Let's talk Christmas. Imma just say this - I'm EXCITED for Christmas, because this year I feel like I can actually decorate for it without having trees torn limb from limb. I'm excited because my kids are excited for it this year. I'm excited despite having told The Hubs that my gift to him this year is that we don't have to exchange gifts this year (I know, it was a moment of temporary insanity that I still regret from time to time, and yes, I am STILL keeping a wish list on TheThingsIWant). Sue me.

I'm so excited that the Pointer Sisters just called me up to tell me to simmah down now.



I'm so excited that, as anal as I am about my trees, I actually waited UNTIL THE KIDS LEFT THE ROOM to move the ornaments that they placed all on one branch so they were more evenly distributed on the tree.

I'm so excited I'm pretty sure I have this expression on my face:




I'm so excited I put up not one, but TWO trees.



 (Isn't the peg-board barricade lovely?)


I'm so excited I can't stand it. Even more exciting? That one of my favey crockett Christmas songs came on my Jango station today at work. I giggled out loud when it came on.

Then I googled the video to share it. This video is awesome for several reasons: it is so obviously lip-synced, the lead singer's Bonnie-Tyler-wannabe hurrdo, the Lionel Richie lookalike dancing on stage near the end, it's frigging 1983...do I need to continue???? Okay, let's continue. The cotton candy blond that could be the twin of Stephanie Vanderkellen on Newhart, dancing horrifically with Lionel Richie:


I think I've made my point. Let's get to it and just enjoy the mooo-sic, shall we?



Merry Christmas Everybody.
