I have to say, I'm so glad there isn't a big holiday in January, I'd have to boycott.
But the Christmas decorating is the best. I love sitting in the living room at night, the room dark except for the tree. It's magical and gets my writer mind spinning on all the tales I still have to tell.
We even get Seth involved. Of course, all our trees are freshly cut. The three of us go out to the forest and with our permit, cut the perfect trees for the living room and the lobby. Maybe one of these years, we'll bring the writers along as their out of the chair exploration day. It's fun and usually we're dealing with a lot of snow.
Of course, Shauna packs gallons of hot chocolate and cookies for the short trip up the mountain, but we always seem to empty out the thermos and bags long before we get home. Hiking in snow is a great workout.
