It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
I love Christmas! It's my most favorite time of the year. Here are some random reasons I love Christmas...
I love giving gifts (my most favorite thing to do at Christmas-time)! I also love writing our Christmas letter and sending our family photo! I love peppermint mochas and candy sprinkles that look like Christmas trees! I love wrapping presents while listening to Amy Grant's Christmas Album! I love decorating every inch of my house! I love "the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree" with my husband and two girls! I love unwrapping the ornaments and reminiscing about who gave me each one! I love wearing tacky Christmas earrings (gingerbread men and bells and angels) that I wouldn't dream of wearing any other time of the year! I love the almost-cold weather and scarves and hats and mittens and a fire in the fireplace! I love red and green together with a splash of gold! I love making a list and checking it twice! I love white elephant gift exchanges and parties! I love putting out my nativity scene and telling the real Christmas story to my children! I love hanging the stockings by the chimney with care! I love my dad's famous fudge and my mom's almond sour-cream bread! I love all 10 of my Christmas cds! I love baking pumpkin bread for all of my neighbors! I love my cheesy fiber-optic wreath! I love taking the girls out looking at Christmas lights! I love singing Christmas carols and church musicals and preschool performances! I love watching Amber open presents because she thoroughly enjoys it! I love Christmas!
