In general I am a holiday traditionalist.

No talk of Turkey until after the costumes.

Christmas music is Never Okay until after the turkey has been cleared away.

I usually don't even start Christmas shopping until Black Friday. Although that has more to do with the sales than the timing. I can be a bit of a procrastinator.

Sadly this year I was forced to break my rules.

Last year you might remember Triple S was gone for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Great news being he will be home this year. Of course he has to go back to the boat Friday morning.

Now you might be thinking Blah Blah who cares about when he is going to the boat?

But I have a point to this boring information.

Today we went tree shopping and if you are going to go tree shopping then you need to have Christmas music. It's the law and it trumps the rule of Thanksgiving.

You might remember last year we got a GIANT tree. Sadly though, we moved and our new house doesn't have that ridiculous ceiling. (YEAH!!) So instead of getting a giant tree I got two. That seemed like the only logical solution to the ridiculous amount of ornaments I've collected over the years.

So Christmas started a bit early here.

Now I have to go write down my Black Friday shopping list. Yeah, I wake up early and brave the crowds. As if you needed more examples of my crazy.

Do you have talented friends that spend hours working on their craft? Maybe an artist or a musician. Maybe a photographer or an instructor...
