Happy Saturday to all. Another late start to my blogging as I have been working on some more of my silly Joshed up Christmas songs. I tell ya, once I start, I can't stop. Whats funny, is that it really takes me no time to do at all. What can I say, I have a strange sense of humor. I will probably post them here sometime this weekend.

Let see, last night went out with the family , grabbed some hot chocolate, and went out looking at lights. I think the feeling for Christmas has been very contagious around here this year as there seems to be even more people doing them . For me, it is a really special thing to see every one get into the mood for Christmas. Especially since the rest of the year can really bring stress and worries to our lives. It is nice to have a time that we can all remember what truly is important, have some fun, and celebrate it in our own unique way. I know its hard to see all that when your out looking at lights, but the lights people put up always remind me that we all need a bit of light in our own lives. When I say light, I mean hope. It is very symbolic for me. I enjoy seeing the creativity of what people do and is fun to see. It makes me smile. How truly nice it is to see people having fun with their decorations. Gives me hope that people still know how to have fun. I hope this feeling of Christmas is just as contagious else where, as it is here. I just wish there was some dang snow. I so miss it. Seeing the spirit, the creativity, and all the act of kindness grow all around you is very over whelming to me, but in a good way. What a beautiful feeling to know that alot of people understand this wonderful spirit of good will towards others and want to share it. Its hard not to want to share it. Let the world rejoice in that. I wish there was more of it and also have it last all through the year. But I know life has its way of keeping people from experiencing that feeling all year round. And in places like Africa, they probably don't even see it ever. Makes ya think doesen't it? But we can still try and should never stop trying. Anyway, in short, the evening went on, the Christmas music played, it made me want to put even more lights up. HAHAHA. Such a griswald I am. All this sappy Christmas feelings, and me going on as usual, and all I wanted to say was that it made me want to put up lights. How goofy am I? I am a truly goofy sap.....But I still love Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!

You know, I really wish I could get a Polar Express theme for my lights. I saw one up in Fresno once and it was amazing. I recall the person had a huge book resembling the Polar Express book right in the front of their house.It was the coolest thing ever. I look forward to going up to Christmas Lane in Fresno this year and hopefully seeing that display again. I will have to remember to get a picture of it so I can show my Grobanite friends. I wonder if those people with the display know who Josh is? Maybe I should go ask? HAHAHAH. It is so wonderful what that whole street does together.Talk about a community working together. I would love if my town did something like that, but doubt it ever will. Not that they aren't capable of working together, but just appears to be a lot of different beliefs in holidays around here. Makes it kind of hard. But there are a number of streets where you see four or five houses in a row decorate together. My street is not too bad at that I must say. I would love to have that great Polar Express display that they had and blast the song Believe over and over from my house. Talk about a way to Josh the neighborhood. Woo hoo. But I have a feeling that would cost some $$$. Which this time of year, I HAVE NONE LEFT OVER! But after we did our night time adventure of lights, we came home and wouldn't ya know it, Polar Express was on TV..It was actually nice that they didn't cut off Josh at the end........ Yeah baby!

Well, it has taken me a while to write this as my children having been making sure mommy does not concntrate today. LOL So, I will go and try to get things done today while I still can. Anyway, forgive the going on as usual, sometimes I just get carried away when I sit down and write something. And talking about Christmas, always seems to bring out my wanting to get carried away. Its that time of year..... My tip for today, don't hang mistletoe over yourself before going to an ugly convention......Otherwise, some one ugly will kiss you............ok, I am officially a dork!
