Welllll, not only will I have a christmas outfit (I'm not a dress person) but Lady will have a christmas dress, and Giz some fancy clothes too (I am looking for a bow tie). I am trying to teach Lady how to sing..lol..with hopes that she can come along for some christmas caroling. This year, we're also baking up a ground turkey, mashed potatoe, peas, corn, gravy and kibble concoction for the dogs to eat while we do. It'll keep them from begging at the table..lol..
And I'm a big time decorator.. I wish I could get paid to decorate christmas trees. You have no idea how much time I put into trees.. My mother has an 8ft fake tree, that I'll post pics of when it goes up as well as my own tree..(our tree is getting done in red, silver, and dog..ohh just wait..lol)..It takes me like a day to just get the tree up and decorated..and I do it all to Christmas music..

Plus, I know EVERY song..lol, it's the only thing I listen to from the day after thanksgiving until christmas day. =]

Are you convinced yet?

We've been in Australia for 30 years now but I'm still not used to having Christmas in the heat of summer! For years we kept up the English tradition of roast turkey with all the trimmings, but it was too hot to enjoy (and cook) most times. Now we mainly have seafood, cold turkey, ham and salads - and let me tell you it just isn't the same! One Christmas I want to go to New York - or anywhere in America or Canada - and experience the way you celebrate it. Now don't all rush to feel sorry for me and invite me over to your place ...........

Not wanting to sound eager, but I will offer that if you can get here, I'll show you a Traditional Midwest Thanksgiving/Christmas Dinner

Well Michael, that is very kind! Maybe one of these days I'll take you up on that offer! It's been a dream of mine for many years.
