If you asked my girls about their "Christmas List" their eyes would light up and you would hear about the wonders to be found in the latest American Girl Doll Catalog, about scooters and talking birds, MP3 players, Littlest Pet Shops and all sorts of other miscellaneous fun stuff.
Pose the same question to me and watch the look of panic flit across my face. You see my definition of Christmas list has evolved over the last few years, now instead of my personal wish list I will tell you about the Christmas letter I haven't written, the picture CD I still dream of compiling, the gifts I have yet to purchase, and the gifts that I need to purchase and still don't know what to get! AGGHH!
However, ask me what I did today to dig in to the list and you'll see the look of guilty pleasure as I tell you about how I browsed the Harry & David catalog and the Williams-Sonoma catalog and the hour I spent on the internet searching out Christmas delicacies like homemade marshmallows dipped in caramel and moose munch popcorn.
But it's still November...and when you stop by and taste the yummy things coming out of my kitchen when December comes maybe I'll have forgotten for a moment all the things left still undone.
