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 Memories & Long Lost Family

Posted 11-10-2010 at 10:26 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I woke up this morning thinking about two different things, both about my past with cousins I haven't seen for a while. My boys have been watching the original Transformers cartoon, now that they are on TV again, my boys are loving it, it may be a little "old" for them, but being a child of the 80's when Ghostbusters and Gremlins were considered family fare, this is pretty harmless. It is fun reliving my childhood with my boys, and seeing how much they love it reminded me how much I loved that show, especially Optimus Prime, we have the great fun realistic looking movies now, and the toys are a lot harder to do, but they are so much cooler looking now. Which brings me to my cousins, they are both older than me but I am only 1 1/2 years younger than my older cousin. We were so close growing up, they lived in the next town and we would go over there house quite often, and they always had the best toys, my oldest cousin was the sports nut, being into baseball, football, and hockey,...
