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.

Enjoy the Season!

Here we are as we are every year, Thanksgiving Eve, in a few hours the turkey will be in the oven, the heavenly aroma filling the air. The hugs of family members you see once or twice a year. Good food, football games of teams you don't care about. The excitement of the holiday season 2011 is here. Christmas music is filling the airwaves, and the big man, Santa Claus will be riding in the float to let the world see Christmas is basically here. I am behind where I like to be at this time, my house is almost decorated, and the Christmas shopping is close but not done. But Christmastime is here. The time that brings all of us so much joy, the time we start counting down at 12:01am December 26 for. It's here, lets enjoy it, let's make more memories that will make this time of the year more endearing.

The Spirit of Christmas

Posted 11-13-2011 at 12:51 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Christmas is the time of year
For being with the one's we love
Sharing so much joy and cheer
What a wonderful feelin
Watching the one's we love
Having so much fun

I was sittin by the fire side
Taking a walk through the snow
Listening to a children's choir
Singing songs about Jesus
The blessed way that he came to us
Why can't it remain
All through the year
Each day the same
Heyeah, that's what I wanna hear
Heh heh
It's truly amazin
That spirit of Christmas

All the kin folk gather round
The lovely Christmas tree
Hearts are glowing full of joy
Sense the gifts that we're giving
And the love that we're living
Why can't it remain
Ohhh all through the year
Each day the same
Heyeah, that's what I wanna hear
I'll tell ya
It's truly amazin
That spirit of Christmas

Let...

I Am Wallpaper

Posted 10-13-2011 at 08:23 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I have been dealing with some strange goings on the last few weeks, as I have said in the past I am an extremely shy person, and when you mix in women who flirt with you it makes for some comical results. I prefer to be a person who does not stick out, almost like "wallpaper" I am there but not noticed. That is the way I like to be, if someone ever wanted my "15 minutes of fame" I would pay them to take it. First time I noticed I was being flirted with I was going in to pick up a pizza, I walked in, I have to walk by the bar to the pick up window, I noticed 3 women watching me, I felt very self conscious, I get to the window and the pizza order had just been put in the oven, so I had to go back by the women, I quickly walked out and went to sit in my car while I waited. 10-15 minutes later I had to go back in, I was nervous and dreading it almost, I went back in making sure my wedding ring was COMPLETELY visible, they watched every step I took, I just wanted to leave....

A Friend In Need...

Posted 09-16-2011 at 02:48 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)
Tags friend, life, work

As many you may know I am a worry wart, I care much for people close to me and for the people on this site if they are quiet for to long. I have some thoughts on my friend who is in his mid-thirties and seemingly has no prospects for work or love. He is a great guy, who cares for everyone, and wears his heart on his sleeve, and will do anything to help us or anyone out. He lives at home with his parents and plays video games until the sun comes up, then sleeps until noon or later. He has had jobs where he has excelled at, but never lasted at either by choice or lay off, most recently he left his job because his car won't pass inspection. His car has been abandoned in our driveway for the last 2.5 months. He has had girlfriends but he has dumped them early on and hasn't gone out dating close to 7 years now. I worry about him because there is so much to experience in life and when your life is lived through a video game, you really don't see much. I admit I use to play video games at least...

Santa Won't Let Me Down?

Posted 09-15-2011 at 01:58 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)
Tags belief, magic, santa

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...
