(Josh made up his obnoxious cookie comments by baking us some Christmas cookies.)

For as long as I live, I will never stop thinking a new blanket every holiday season is ridiculous. It's just so wasteful. I picked a blue/green quilt from Target, which I'm sure drove Josh's parents crazy. They included 98,000 thread count sheets with it, along with some fancy throw pillows. I guess we're all a little passive-aggressive in our own ways. If my mother knew I think she'd say it's ridiculous too, but to roll with it. Each year I make a mental list of what I'd get my mom for Christmas. Each year it gets harder and harder. She wasn't a big consumer.

Alex and I cleaned out a ton of stuff over the weekend. She made us move around the living room furniture differently and I keep banging into the couch in the new spot when I walk in.

One nice thing about getting new bedding every year is that you get to donate nice bedding to Goodwill or whatever, and the people who buy it or receive it will be very thankful to have such nice, gently used items for their home.

Hi ,
I'm really curious, did Josh put sprinkles on the Christmas cookies?
Also wanted to say thanks for a great blog.
Kind regards

Cathy, he didn't. Probably because they were not Christmas colors. :)
