Welcome to our newest member, MGunderso
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.

I have written a few times in not to distant past about wanting to open and run my own Christmas store, I am realizing that the dream of doing that is probably a little farther away than I was anticipating.
We are having a little trouble with one of my wife's student loans, and the amount they want us to pay per month is just not feasible with other bills and such at this time. We have been trying to work with them, but they just don't want to help us out right now. My wife and I earn a very nice income combined, but between bills, daycare, mortgage, and thankfully only one car payment, the 6 months of oil which has gone up like 400% since we first moved in together. Our salaries have not gone up that much, and I assume most people have not either. The stress of everyday life and squeaking by is tough enough and now add this, we are honest hard working people who have earned everything we own, and sometimes you see people who will not help themselves, get hand outs to give them...
