strategizing with christmas cheer

fact: Cody is a Christmas hater (due to no fault of his own).

fact: Kaisha is a Chrstmas Eve baby and lover of all things red, sparkly, and full of sappy Christmas nostalgia.

Kaisha’s conclusion: carefully plan and execute her Christmas cheer in such a way as to break through the gloom of a Cody December.

plan: homemade ornaments. cinnamon rolls. chicken, brussels sprouts, and wine. gifts he wants…not gifts i think are snazzy therefore he also should think they are snazzy. purpose to be unashamed of your own love for Christmas.

execute: don’t get pushy with the Christmas music and movies. do nice stuff for other people together. don’t be offended when he hates on ‘Santa Baby’ for 5 minutes…if it didn’t have magical Christmas spells on it you’d hate it too. be excited no matter what.

result: Kaisha makes the best cinnamon rolls in the world!!!!!! (specifically a small unnamed town renown for it’s cinnamon roll making mothers.)

oh..and it was Cody’s best Christmas ever.

  1. And Christmas at the Arend’s is fantastic.

    Cody, one day you too will love Christmas. I promise.

    Oh, and you guys are awesome! Made my day you would come and see us!

  2. Your right darling, it was the best Christmas:) But I still hate Christmas…the fact is, it all gets blurred together with “American” Christmas no matter how hard you try, and I think even all the Christmas lover’s out there can agree that “American” Christmas is worth hating…but I like Jesus Christmas, which basically amounts to the candle light service at church, favorite part…and your cinnamon rolls…
