For some super strange reason, it doesn’t feel like Christmas to me this year. And, compared to last year, I haven’t barely even blogged about Christmas that much on here, so, time to fix that! Time to at least attempt to get into that Christmas Spirit within the last six days before the big day is here. 🙂
I don’t know about you, but I think it would be fun to experience a typical ‘Christmas’ like you see in some of the cheap-y holiday films, like what Hallmark sometimes make. I’d love to be that one kid who has to spend the holidays with rich, extended family in some “god-forsaken” country-side away from the city with the house all decked out to the wall-paper and nothing to worry about except some silly drama that really isn’t that bad anyway—except, I would find that super fun and not be all “my Christmas is ruined!” nonsense that the kid would wail at the beginning upon hearing their fate. Like, it would be awesome to spend Christmas in the country-side where there might actually be hills to ride sleighs on and you wouldn’t even have to do all that extensive decorating, it’s just all done by that butler who’s been with the family for years and of course there would be snow….. I have never had a Christmas with snow.
Kids in movies get it so lucky sometime and of course, they complain about it.
Yesterday I cooked sugar cookies with my brother Nathan (who just turned six, come to think of it, and I didn’t even blog anything for his birthday, shame on me.) I think I looked a little funny doing it because I was wearing a purple apron that just clashed by my silver and black Batman shirt and then I had gotten flour all over the black parts of the shirt and then he was wearing his little kids Pampered Chef apron that I used to wear when I was his size… why am I rambling about our clothes? Anywaaaaay, we made bears, snowmen, Christmas tress and large snowflakes. We then frosted them and Nathan dumped large amounts of sprinkles on them and they turned out pretty nicely! 🙂
As I’m sitting here typing, Kayla and I are listening to Focus on the Families’ radio drama version of A Christmas Carol and I was reenacting Scrooge myself a moment ago–at this moment Kayla is hopping around the room pretending to be Crachit but I don’t know why Crachit would be hopping. Although I’m not a huge Dickens fan at all, I do love A Christmas Carol; I’m looking forward to reading the book for the first time in a couple weeks with Dylan–I just need to borrow a copy of the book from the library and then the two of us are going to break from reading Sherlock Holmes to put in a Christmas book before the year ends. 🙂
I can’t think of anything else that I’ve done that has been very Christmas-y… so this post must come to an end. 🙂
I hope you’ve been having a more Christmas-y feeling Christmas then I have. 🙂 I hope to feel the spirit soon… I hope…
