♪ ♫ It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas ♪ ♫

. . . well, not quite.  Today’s forecast - 82° degrees.  The Christmas season looks decidedly different in Florida compared to our neighbors to the north.

While decorating our Christmas tree, I had to lower the a/c in our house.  There’s something that just feels so wrong about sweating while unpacking ornaments.

Luckily, my kids seemed to have a great time regardless of the lack of softly falling snow out the window.

To top off our night, my husband stealthy decorated the girls’ triple bunk beds while I kept them busy digging into the ornament box.

We transformed this:

Into this:

When the girls were ready for bed, I waited in their room poised with my camera while Howard led them in.  This way I captured this priceless moment:

“The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads…”

 I think it’s the makings of a new Christmas tradition.

What about you?  Do you have any unique traditions that you hope to continue?

      No thanks!! LOL! No trading for me. Sure, I may complain about the heat on occasion- but we can always jump in the pool to cool off. Cold weather has a way of seeping into my bones. I’ll stay where I am. But do let us know when you’re in the area for a visit. :) Pool’s always open!
