“Putting out Christmas decorations, pulling the Cajun Night Before Christmas book off the book shelf to display with the alligator puppet!”

If it sounds like she’s speaking in code, she is—this her morse code.

My mom has, like, twenty different “christmas” or “holiday” or “Pier 1 and Martha Stewart vomiting up glitter” displays sprinkled lovingly throughout the house. My plan for a very special Holiday edition of momWHATareyoudoing is to document several of these christmas marvels for the world to see. The sooner the better, I know. To be honest, I’m not entirely sure the world is ready for it, but, like little Ralphie coming down the stairs in the bunny suit, its important that we all see it at least once.

In case you’re wondering, the Cajun Night Before Christmas book is exactly what it sounds like.
