Welcome to our newest member, AmyHardy
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.

Do You Know Where Your Christmas Lists And Decorations Are Hiding?

Posted 09-18-2012 at 09:41 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Wow, let me blow the dust off the keyboard, it has been a long while since I have posted on my blog.
Mid-September, Halloween is in the stores and in the air, the first hints of Christmas in the retail world is now upon us. I feel a little behind in my Christmas preparation, I haven't even started doing my own Christmas list yet. We don't know what to get the kids yet, they are difficult for some reason without any items that really stick out this year. My wife, I don't know what she wants this year, I usually have my mind made up by now of what to get her.
My decorations are sitting down in the basement waiting for their 2012 unveiling, I know I need to replace items this year, I believe I have to replace at least 5 strands of white mini-lights among other things.
2012 could be a great Christmas season, I just need to get my act together or my decorating and shopping seasons could be running into the dreaded "last minute."
