What is Rudy Day ? .....

I've always enjoyed Christmas. The decorations, the flurry and, of course, the real meaning but always felt let down on December 26. It was all over in a flash. All the planning and doing was gone in a minute. Finally I found the OC ...not the tv show but the Organized Christmas website which led to the Magical Holiday Home Forum. I don't even know how I found it but I did. And they had this wonderful thing called Rudolph Day....Rudy Day to most of us.....that lets you think, plan, dream about Christmas at least once a month on the 25th. And the best thing was I found more people out there just like me ! Crazy about all things Christmas. Well, almost obsessive. But to my family and friends that think I'm nuts half the time, I just want you to know there is no cure for it so don't try to find one. I wouldn't want the cure if you could find one anyway.

Christmas in July Party.....

I've had a Christmas in July party for the last two years. I was hoping this year (since it was on a Saturday) to have it on July 25th. Everyone that I spoke to either can't make it or looked at me like I had grown two heads. What???...thinking of Christmas now? Are you nuts? It's 90 degrees outside.

So I will go back to my tried and true two daughters that think I am perfectly sane. Last year the altered clipboards were all the rage. We had a great time making ours.




This year we will have our traditional breakfast casserole, fresh fruit and coffee (they are both BIG coffee drinkers) after we make a trip to Hobby Lobby. We just need a little inspiration first. Then pop in a good Christmas movie (I think last year we watched 4!)and work on some craft project that I come up with. I just want to make someting that takes about an hour or two. More on the craft project I pick on a later post. After that we will work on whatever we want of our own. DD#2 made Christmas cards two years ago and I think she will make new ones again this year.

Too bad more of my MHH friends don't live closer!

You know that I would definitely be there. We'll be away, but you can bet that I'll fit something Christmassy in!

I love you clipboard, I made one too that I'll share again later.

Have a great day!
