It is Christmas season and it brings to mind so many things to ramble on about, but I decided to chat about something very, very important to most of our hearts – SNOWMEN!!

Yes, yes, yes!!  Snowmen are the bane of my husband’s existence.  He dreams of snowmen and blowtorches together.   He talks about hiring a snowman hit man to take my entire collection out in one fell swoop.   He threatens them all the time.  Talk is cheap.  The price he would pay is far more expensive than he would really want to pay.  Really.  Trust me on this.  Don’t mess wit ‘da snowmen, baby.

Hubby really thinks I’ve gone overboard so I have really been cutting back on snowmen purchases.  It is hard but I guess there really is such a thing as too many snowmen.

Nah!

Got you there for a minute, didn’t I!?  There is NO such thing as too many snowmen.  If someone dares to tell you this, they are lying through their teeth.  They are secret snowmen haters.

So trying to keep in the spirit of the season and keeping the peace in the house, I’ve been careful to only pick up a few very special or unusual snowmen.  I believe I have been rewarded for my loving kindness toward my husband.  I have discovered that God really did make snowmen and meant for me to have them.

See?  I have proof.  Not only do I now have snowmen raising their hands and, what I believe, praising God, I even have one in the middle that is praying.   What more proof do I need that it is OK for me to collect snowmen??  Oh?  Those other two?  Ummm – they were cute?  They begged me take them off the empty Lowe’s shelf and take them home?  They were on sale??

Of course, he likes Jake – you press Jake’s hand and he sings, “I’m a snow man… I love the cold!”  So how can he like one and not love the others?  Is it fair he gets to pick and choose?  I say NO!  Love one snowman, love them all.

It’s beginning to look at lot like Christmas – everywhere I snow… dum de dum la la la la la — I think I will leave the pictures on his camera – ho ho ho!  Send some to his camera phone – he doesn’t know how to take them off, so I’m good.

Celebrate the joy of the season.  Stay at peace.  Don’t overextend your finances.  Realize that there is always another day to do what needs to be done – or don’t do it.  Anything that causes you stresses needs to be re-evaluated.  Don’t sweat the small stuff.  Relax and remember the real reason for the season – and it isn’t finding that perfect gift for someone who will probably exchange it anyway.  Count your blessings and be thankful.  Take a deep breath – that’s your first blessing to be grateful for.  You are alive and have the choice to enJOY your life!

I really like that dead plant up there in the planter.  My best decoration yet!  And he’s not such a bad Alpha Hubby.  He could have popped this snowman last year but instead, he ensured the snowman didn’t blow away by securing him to the porch.  I think he loves me.  Yep, a lot!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
