Deck them Halls, Folks!
This weekend was a very Christmasy weekend.
It smelled of pine and sounded like laughter and felt like warm beating hearts.
Friday was Polar Express Day at the preschool meaning we got to come to work in pajamas, eat popcorn and the kids watched Polar Express. Right after work my fam and I ate at Bonefish Grill and then went to a "Christmas play" that wasn't very good or very Christmasy. We left at intermission and instead drove down neighborhoods to look for Christmas lights. It wasn't the best experience in the world but we Andos made the best of it because that's what we do.
Saturday was the watching of a lame movie entitled; "The Christmas Bunny", a friend coming over, the decorating of a trailer to ride in a Christmas parade next weekend and test rides in it around the neighborhood as Michael Buble's rendition of "Jingle Bells" played loudly, a drive-thru live Nativity scene, Downtown St. Pete adventures consisting of gelato, fluffy dogs, Christmas lights, horse carriages, a tour through the Vinoy hotel, and the such.
Sunday was church, subway, Starbucks, guests over for dinner and desserts, and laughter and talks on our back porch.
It was just a good weekend.
And now it's over.
But I'm not too sad, you know.
Because more Christmas days are upon us.
I can't help but be excited.
