And now.. my favorite.. putting out the Christmas decorations! I absolutely love everything about this season. We put up our tree, wrapped some presents, put up the rest of the Christmas decor, set out all the Christmas-y smell good candles, and hung pictures and curtains (we are still getting settled after getting all of our things shipped over here... it's getting there!). Right now I'm downloading a bunch of Christmas movies: Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Carol, Elf, Christmas with the Kranks, Santa Clause 1-3, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, etc. I can't decide which one I want to watch tonight!
Just a few things I love about Christmas time..
|Snow! So beautiful.|
|Hot chocolate... HOMEMADE hot chocolate. And I make the best! ;)|
|Because the holidays give you a good excuse to wear more shimmery makeup than you normally would!|
|Christmas BAKING. I have a lot of goodies that I want to make.. can't wait to share them with you!|
|PEACH PIE. Not really Christmas-y... but I have one in the oven right now and it smells SO good. Can't wait to have a piece with a huge scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!!|
