It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Okay. Thanksgiving is officially over and it is now time to indulge in my favorite: Christmas!!!

Yeah, yeah, I know.   Christmas is everyone's favorite holiday. But really, Christmas is my FAVORITE holiday. My birthday is December 19th and when I was little it was so super awesome to get my birthday and Christmas so close together. Now that I'm a 'grown-up' I enjoy that warm fuzzy feeling when I hear Christmas music, smell a wood fire (Mom & Dads' house), drink hot chocolate (Grandma Betty), get bundled up to go play in the snow, and have the lights in the house dimmed with the Christmas lights on (I have an obsession with white lights and greenery! :)).
My favorite Nativity Scene in the house
So the decorating has begun! Like I said, I have a serious obsession with white lights and greenery. I LOVE IT. Another love: The Tree (yup- it is important enough to capitalize). I absolutely have to have a real tree. The smell. The sticky sap. The needles. I LOVE IT. We don't have the tree yet, but my lights are on as I sit and write. The other decorations aren't quite where they need to be, but I got like a month to get that figured out.

Enjoy your decorations, family and friends. Count your won't believe how many there are. Christmas isn't about the decorations, the food, and is definitely NOT about the presents - those are all HUGE bonuses.  The main reason I love this holiday is because I believe in Him... :)


  1. I love Christmas, too! I wanted to get the tree up yesterday but it didnt' work out. :(

  2. Katie - do you get a real tree or do you have a fake one? I'm curious as to where you get your real one if you do :) Enjoy getting it up when you do! Hope the boys don't knock it down!
