Welcome to our newest member, Amy_theexplorer
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.

Christmas Field Trips 2012 (Rough Draft)

Posted 05-21-2012 at 08:57 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Once again it is only May, but Christmas is as usual on the forefront of my mind. I have been thinking of things to do around Christmastime to help build up my Christmas spirit (as I need to do too much) I thought maybe start by doing a sort of checklist of things we could/would/maybe do this year:

Yankee Candle Village-As usual I have to start by putting down this one it is the "largest" Christmas store around, and it is semi-tradition to go there, great gifts and the sites are truly Christmassy.

Kringle Candles-This one is lower on the list as the prices for their Christmas store are really high end, but their Christmassy scented candles are great.

Graziano Gardens-I haven't been there since the mid to late 90's, honestly I forgot about them. They are a gardening store in the spring/summer, but come fall, Christmas takes center stage. I remember them having a lot of Santa's for sale, besides that I must relearn.

I Cannot Wait

Posted 10-25-2010 at 09:23 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I am ready to break out the decorations, I am ready for a turkey dinner, I am just ready.
I feel on top of the game this year, I am not feeling overwhelmed by the thought of shopping, or of getting the house decorated. I just want to get everything done early this year and really enjoy the WHOLE season, just listening to Christmas music or watching all my Christmas DVD's this year, the last 2 we have not been able to watch them all with all going on, but this year I will. I cannot wait until the local radio stations go Christmas music 24/7 and I fall asleep every night listening to it (one of my favorite things). My wife has been making a new Christmas cookie the last 2 weekends and she plans to do every weekend right through the holidays, I know my earlier blogs I was sort of depressed about things but that has passed and now once again the season cannot get here fast enough and as of midnight we will be under 60 days.
I am not only dreaming of a white Christmas, I am dreaming...
