Welcome to our newest member, cmas333
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.

As the year is winding down to it's final 3 days, I have been thinking about what kind of year it has been. It was a year that started off pretty lousy with me getting sick around my birthday, I was out of work sick for four days, and during that time I was on this site on the Christmas Countdown when I learned U.S. Representative Gabby Giffords and others had been involved in a horrible act of violence by a sick young man. I was horrified at what I was seeing. Then a few days later, we were hit with a blizzard that dumped over 30 inches of snow on us, missing yet another day of work and seeing snow piled 4 feet deep in my front yard. Then it was pretty quiet for a little while, in February, I was promoted ending my time as Mr. Mom, and had to adjust to life getting up bright and early. It has been a good and bad thing with the promotion, as I have had to deal with more than I ever had to before, and learn to "put out fires" quickly. Spring came, we had a great Easter, but started...

Christmas Thoughts

Posted 12-25-2011 at 08:28 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

We sit here less than 2 hours remaining in Christmas 2011, the journey we began on December 26, 2010 at 12:01am is coming to a close. As with previous years, this one is tops on my list, it felt strange not to leave the house with everyone coming over here, turkey and prime rib for dinner. We are exhausted, as we have spent the last 2 days prepping for this, my wife much more than I, as I have had to sit most of the time due to surgery. We have more festivities ahead of us this week, we will be hosting (again) a New Year's Eve party, New Year's Day we head to my grandparents for my family Christmas, and a week or so later we will be hosting yet again my wife's and mine combined birthday party. This is the time of year I live for, I love the sense of "peace" I feel seeing my kids faces, and smile as they discover their new treasures, a time when I can walk up to my wife and just give her a hug and whisper Merry Christmas to her. This year has been the best Christmas ever, and...
