It's the most wonderful time of the year.

If you're all about clouds and rain and crazy people knocking each other down in the store to get to the last pig in a tea cup or what ever the must have toy of the season is. OK, so I really do love Christmas. I'm just having a bit of a tough time gearing up for it this year. I know I'll get there eventually, but for now I just want to nap....a lot.

But I do have a plan. On Friday I'm going to try and find myself a new Christmas table cloth for our dining room table. I inherited a few from Grandma M&M when we got the table, but one is way too small (I think it's actually supposed to be on the table Princess has) and the other is for when we open the table out to seat 16 for family dinners. I need one for everyday when the table only seats 6. And I need something that smells a cinnamon candle or the like.

Until then, I'm heading to to pimp out my blog St.Nick style. They have 25 or more adorable Christmas designs to choose from & they're really easy to use.

For now I need a little help from you all. How do you get into the Christmas spirit? Do you have a favorite CD you pop in? A DVD to watch? A cookie to bake? Help jump start me, please.

The thing that gets me into the Christmas spirit is my first Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks..actually I usually only have one since I'm not a fan of paying a huge price for their stuff...but that one cup is so good!! Add a Christmas CD by Luther Vandross and I'm ready!!!

While I like the coffee idea, I don't relish the thought of shelling out $5 for a cup of coffee with candy cane flavor (or pumpkin pie or eggnog for that matter)...Instead, I dig out the Christmas CDs - usually Steven Curtis Chapman, and listen to them ad nauseum. I also will put some vanilla extract, cinammon, nutmeg, ginger, and some cloves into a saucepan of water and turn the burner on low and let the scent fill the air. When that doesn't work, I have to get out the cinnamon pine cones I bought, and get the tree up and decorated.

Wishing you a Merry December to get Christmassy!
