My name is Ron, I am a Christmas nut always have been always will be. I am first and foremost a stay at home dad that has an evening job at a retail/grocery establishment. After my second son was born I stepped down from my management position, so my wife and I don't have to pay for daycare. My wife is a teacher in the town we live, so people recognize us everywhere in our little town.
My wife and I have been married for 9 years. We have 2 boys aged 6 and 3, both are young Christmas nuts.

I have loved Christmas as long as I remember
from seeing the lights on all the houses, to seeing if I could stay awake to see Santa.
Christmas has been the one constant in my life it has always been there for me, through the rough times of my parents divorce when I was 10 y/o or my mother's passing when I was 16.
Everyone always tried to make it something special for myself and sister when we were young no matter what was going on. I now believe that is why I love this time of year more than any other because of the efforts of my family to hold it above any other time of year. I get to make the season special for my boys now, whether it be by playing the music decorating the house and yard or just playing the dvd's. The memories the season has brought have always warm and it is no wonder why I look forward to making more of these memories every year. My favorite Christmas movie is A Christmas Story my favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night. My favorite Christmas artist is Bing Crosby.
Well if I ran on a little bit I am sorry I am new to blogging, it sounds always better in your mind.
I will try to keep posting and making it interesting for all who read.

It is September 20, the football season is in full swing, apple orchards are open for the annual pilgrimage of people looking for fall activities, hockey training camps are open, and we have begun our annual hunt for the perfect Christmas gifts. We usually start pretty slow, waiting for the flyers with the unbeatable sale price, and they slowly start filtering down now as the stores build their inventories for the season. We set a goal to have all shopping done by December 1, so we can fully enjoy the season, I think we have met that goal only once in 9 years. That is okay now with so much shopping being done online, which I fully enjoy, because we don't have to fight the crowds at the mall. Well, today I went to the children's Mecca of TRU (Toys R Us) They had exactly what our focus of gifts were going to be for the boys, Imaginext toys. They are great toys and very durable for our hard playing boys, they were buy 2 get 1 free. I enjoy going there, especially without the boys, because I can really look around, I could have spent a lot more today but our Christmas Club is not "mature" yet. I saw Transformers and Phineas & Ferb toys for JP, Play Doh & trucks for LC, these boys are spoiled every year and I truly hope they enjoy these gifts. All I know is the annual hunt has begun, and we must enjoy these Christmases shopping for toys, in a few short years they will want Ipods, cellphones, and laptops, the magic is here picturing their little faces light up and seeing them playing with these toys.

It is here, Christmas shopping 2010, It has begun.
