Christmas in October

My favorite season has begun in our house. We went and bought Christmas stuff today.

We've been buying gifts since last month (we buy a few each month to keep it easy on the budget)...but this month we bought lights and such. I also found a Boston terrier Christmas ornament - and of course a stocking for Roxy in the shape of a paw print.

It's crazy that the stores have decorations for 3 major holidays at a time - Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Festivities are fun and all - but I love the joy that surrounds Christmas at our church. It's an anticipation of the day we celebrate Christ's birth.

Be on the lookout for the annual Christmas picture - it's a great one this year! Will post last year's when I find it.

A Newfound Love

So I tried spaghetti squash for the first time last night and I loved it!!

I think it's fabulous because it can be a substitute for pasta, and it's way better for you than real pasta.

I've made a new holiday today. Today is National Spaghetti Squash Appreciation Day. Hooray!
