It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

I think I need to start a new posting category entitled "God, I love this man!". If I did, it would embarrass Superman to no end, but it would be ever so fun!

For example, when I married my husband almost 10 years ago, he hated Christmas! His Christmas greeting was not 'Merry Christmas' it was 'Bah Humbug'. And he delighted in all things Grinch! He saw Christmas as a dreadful, unavoidable season that began in November, and was jam-packed with running here and there to visit family. Having children only increased the amount of visiting he was forced (kicking and screaming) to do! You see, I'm a bit of a talker and he's a bit anti-social. Add to that, my huge family and the man never really had a chance! Bless his heart!

But ten years and two babies later, it's nothing shy of a miracle that things have changed! You see, it's November 7th and I'm sitting on the couch in front of this season's first fire and what do my eyes behold? This...

Those of you that know Superman personally, I hope you've managed to pick yourselves and your jaws up off the ground. Sorry for the unexpected shock to your eyes!!!

Yep, that's right, Superman has decided to put up my beloved tree and Thanksgiving isn't even here yet!

I knew he was up to something yesterday when he had one of his guys come by and help him start bringing out all the Christmas storage boxes. But in my heart, I just thought it was a convenience thing. You know, when I started whining about wanting to decorate for Christmas, it would be convenient for him to point me in the direction of the back porch, and he would be off the hook!

This is the third year he has really gotten into decorating for Christmas, so you'd think I wouldn't be so surprised, shocked, and flabbergasted! But, I'm honestly sitting here thinking to myself, "Who is this man, and what did he do with my husband?"

Oh, never mind! It's definitely my Superman! He just walked over and gave me a kiss, and had to stop mid verse as he sang, "You're a mean one...(insert kissing sound here)Mr. Grinch..."

God, I love this man!
