Its Fall Y'all!

What, you aren't ready for Autumn yet? Round here the temps are still hoovering around 100, with lows barely getting under 80. Imagine my surprise when I walked into Hobby Lobby today and was bombarded with this

and this!

They were already setting up Christmas Trees in the front entrance area. I'm pretty certain that I actually said "tell me those aren't Christmas Trees" out loud. I didn't mean to blurt that out, but good grief! Can't we just get through the start of school, and gee I don't know, maybe Halloween?

I've found the last few years by the time Christmas arrives I'm just ready for it to all be over. I thought it was just the hustle and bustle of having 3 kids and my trying to do much. But I really think that it has more to do with the commercial over saturation of it all.

I'm ready for some cooler temps - but not fall themed decorations and certainly not even ready to think about Christmas. Am I the only one who would not even consider buying these things yet?

No, we are not thinking about Christmas (well, my wife probably is, but that's because she LOVES Christmas). Christmas starts on Dec 24th, and not before! ;)
