Is it too early for Christmas?

Is it too early for Christmas, or is Thanksgiving just coming too late? This is the question I mulled this past weekend while trying to contain my seasonal excitement. It seems that Thanksgiving might be coming late this year, due to the timing of Thursday's in the month of November. With the cold weather, I was able to get a good start on the Holiday baking, winter decorating (only snowmen, and red berry stuff -- no Christmas greenery or Santa's yet), and put the final stamps on my Christmas cards. This is all being done in an effort to avoid a last minute scramble to celebrate the season, and allow enough time for a Christmas tree. This is something that did not happen last holiday season.

And my tooth... It is not fixed yet. I have to wait until 12/10 (unless an appointment opens up sooner) to have the first of 2 dental appointments to have a cap/fake tooth put in the place of the broken tooth. Pete is trying to talk me into to getting a grill?, or gold tooth (perhaps one with a diamond). Given the timing, the song "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth", has new meaning! :) In the meantime, I have no pain (as the tooth has had a root canal), and am able to eat just fine. Additionally, I urge all who play soccer and other contact sports to wear a mouth guard... it's cheap dental insurance.

Not too early for Christmas. My house is all decked out. Except on the outside.

Love the new smile. :)

Happy decorating! I'll have to be creative with my lack of decorations up here-- hmm.

By the way, I can empathize with your tooth situation, I have had teeth knocked out as well and root canals, crowns. . . ughhh. Hope an appointment opens up soon!! :) Happy belated Thanksgiving!
