20 things I love about the Christmas Season

Decorating the house
Fire in the fireplace
Christmas music (love the crooners!)
Christmas lights, sparkles
Macy’s Thanksgiving – Christmas parade
The Elf tradition
Christmas crafts
Christmas issues of magazines
Ornaments (hand-made!)
Christmas movies
Hot chocolate with mini marshmallows
Vacation time
Time with the family
Baking cookies, fudge, cakes
Receiving Christmas cards in the mail
Snow on Christmas Eve
Santa’s arrival at mom’s house on Christmas Eve with the small kids all excited
Smell of evergreen and of baking
Snuggling up under a throw in pj’s, with a cup of hot chocolate, listening to a Christmas movie with the lights on the tree all aglow.

December 1st 2011

Today the Elves have arrived! Mr.M & Jujubes. They arrived with the advent calendar. Only 1 day was filled... dec. 1st and it was a piece of chocolate. Joannie ate it saying there seemed to be nothing for her brother ;) I told her it would alternate days between the 2 of them.
