Faking Christmas

I know it is only the middle of November, but I've pretty much decided I don't care and I'm celebrating Christmas NOW! I can't help myself when we have a snow day on a Saturday with nothing else to do. So...... we went Christmas shopping (and baby shower shopping), listened to Christmas music all day, watched a little bit of this:
Who doesn't love a politically incorrect Christmas cartoon every now and again? We let Will create his own gourmet sugar cookies- dinosaurs, moons, Christmas trees and gingerbread men all topped with purple frosting and red and green sprinkles- chef's orders! (I promise, we will keep these to ourselves rather than drop off scary treats from the Nicoll's).


Then we finished the night off with a special bubbly drink, a large bowl of very buttery popcorn, and one of my favorite movies- The Family Stone. The best part about this is that it wasn't just me forcing the family into early holiday celebration; Dallas was completely on board the whole day.
Let the holidays begin!!!

Will is quite the chef. What a fun time you all had! He is so stinkin' cute with flour all over him!!

Ok first of all watch out Amy! That little boy of yours is going to be a heart throb. Second...the Pugmire family is totally on-board. We just introduced the collection of politically incorrect movies to Evie (Loves them) and we are almost out of the Martinellis I bought from Costco for Thanksgiving. I guess its time for cookies?!

I think I'm still stuck somewhere in January or February. It's been really hard to wrap my mind around the fact that it's going on the end of November.

Will is such a character. Love the pictures. Mom's sugar cookies are the BEST. My kids love them too. Premature Christmas celebration, who am I to judge? My tree is already up! When you have a new baby you have to plan on taking a few days to accomplish a big task, so I started early. Love you and can't wait to see you this weekend.

Nope, it was this: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/csmithgns . I think you'd like it. I'll have to check out Battle Studies, though. I have to admit, I don't follow John Mayer the same way I used to. Thanks for the heads up.
