Christmas in October?

Okay, there are Christmas decorations everywhere already.  I haven't even bought a Halloween costume for the baby yet!  It seems as if the "holidays" are pushed earlier and earlier every year.  While I do love the holidays and could probably decorate with Christmas decorations year round, it just seems as Thanksgiving just gets brushed over.  I mean, come on!  It's a holiday where we do nothing but eat food!  Why would we want to over look that?! 

It was also announced yesterday that a new country Christmas TV special will be airing this year and a lot of huge country stars are participating.  I L-O-V-E it when country stars do Christmas specials!  It reminds me of all those great specials Bob Hope used to do and it fills me with nostalgia.  "CMA Country Christmas" will air on ABC and feature performances from:  Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, Sugarland, Darius Rucker, Reba McEntire, Marina McBride, Little Big Town, LeAnn Rimes and Sheryl Crow...not sure why she is being thrown in, but I'll take it. 

The artists families are also going to take part in the special and will be taped in front of a live audience.  The special will be filmed at Bridgestone Arena on Thursday November 11th, but no details yet on how to get tickets.  The CMA Awards are being held the night before in the same venue and will also be aired on ABC.  The Christmas special will not air until November 29th. 

I can't wait to see the costumes they'll wear on the special---I'm thinking great Santa dresses like those worn in "White Christmas."  Hey!  Maybe THAT could be the baby's Halloween costume!  A cute little Santa suit!  If I hand him a turkey to carry, we'll cover all of our bases! 

A pumpkin tree?  I dig it!

  1. I love the munchkins Halloween costume idea. And what the heck is the deal with glossing over Thanksgiving? I love that holiday cause of all the family, and leftovers. Gotta love the leftovers.
