It’s Christmas and I feel less Christmasy than usual. Most people seem to feel overwhelmed by all the Christmas stuff but that’s what gives me happiness and joy. The shopping for gifts and decorating and special food and traveling to Pennsylvania to see all my people.
This year, I’m out of it. Most of the shopping is done and we do have a tree in the living room thanks to Brittney’s decorating skills. But if it weren’t for the tree in the living room this house would just look like January. So I went back into the recesses of the blog to find some Christmas and I found this post about my favorite son Ryan from 2010.
You might be thinking, doesn’t she have only one son? Yes, that is true but then he wins the title easily. A little while ago I told him he was my favorite son and he protested with the only son thing but I told him if he were a girl he would be my favorite overall. He’s skeptical. Which is ok because I tell them all they are my favorite.
Anyway, look at this kid.
He got a shaving kit that year along with a money clip.
He’s 14 now. Almost grown. A talented saxophone player who doesn’t practice enough and a wrestler who plays too many computer games.
Only 10 days til Christmas. I’m getting it together. Prime Rib for 11 on Christmas eve so that’s exciting….if I can remember the best way to make it. Cross your fingers.
