Welcome to our newest member, Sandy Horton
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.

Santa Won't Let Me Down?

I am getting the feeling that Santa Claus may not be in existence for my oldest much longer, which is killing me right now and forces me to put my thought in my blog. He is putting all his faith in a gift from Santa that my wife and I cannot afford. While I was tucking him in to bed the other night I asked him what he thinks he wants for Christmas this year? He starts blurting out the usual things like some action figures, books, video games, and so on, when I saw a light go on in his little head and he said he wants Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and a Nintendo 3DS. I told him flat out that Mommy and Daddy cannot afford that this year, and then he said "that's ok, Santa will bring it for me." (In my house we go by the rule Santa brings one present, the rest are from Mom & Dad) My heart sank as soon as he said that, he will be anticipating that will be under the tree from Santa only to be disappointed by it not being there. We bought a Nintendo Wii and put it on Layaway...
