Getting Lost In the Christmas Shuffle
So this year has totally flown by! I feel like the end of the year has snuck up on me. One day I think "Oh, I have plenty of time to do this and that." and the next day "Oops, one week until Christmas and we haven't done any of our usual stuff...". Anyone else feeling this way? Well, we managed to cram a few things in. Today we brought the kids to A Dickens' Christmas in Skaneateles, NY. That is a ton of fun.. characters from A Christmas Carol wander the streets, conversing with folks, acting out scenes from the book, singing carols. There are little treats like a horse drawn carriage ride and roasted chestnuts. Last year we did this at the end of November.. this year, we went on the last day.. that's how far behind we are!
Another fun outing here in Central, NY is Lights On The Lake. We did this one last week.. another one we do every year. Two miles of amazing light displays.. what a wonderful Christmas tradition!
Of course there are also the Christmas movies and specials.. which we don't seem to have the time to watch all the ones we'd like to this year. I really don't remember ever feeling so rushed during a Christmas season! Is it just me?
Thankfully Christmas is almost upon us, and will be over with in a flash.. then we get to look forward to the New Year! Wishing you all the very merriest of Christmases!
