The Middle of Everything


Christmastime is Heerrrrreee! Episode 30

November 27, 2018

We dive into the Christmas season in this episode, starting with a controversial Eggnog conversation…then talk about both our households “no Christmas til after Thanksgiving” stance, and BlackSmallCyber Weekend shopping.


Next we chat about our favorite holiday decorations, traditions and drop a few hot tips about decorating practices, live tree procurement and overcoming kids tree OCD.  Sarah shares Elf on the Shelf regrets (get out before it’s too late people) and her love of the non-chocolate advent calendar tradition she’s passed on to her kids.


Claire talks about her family’s Nutcracker tradition as well as the British Pantomime Season she grew up with, and we talk light displays, Polar Express trains, and All The Things to do this holiday season, including Santa visits, Silver Dollar City and stay-at-home activities.  Tired yet?  We also talk about holiday anxiety and fatigue, and how getting a tentative calendar can ease some of the FOMO.


To wrap up the first of this month’s holiday extravaganza, Sarah gives an update on her son’s Christmas list – spoiler alert, it features a pet lizard!  All the feelings are happening here…
