I love you Christmas!

I'm just like a kid at Christmas. Seriously. I am so, so in love with everything to do with the holiday and I'm counting the days until Santa comes, right along with the kids! It's been such a busy, bustling 2 weeks since I returned to Australia but exciting, all the same! There's been nothing but ornament making of all kinds, card creating, gingerbread house decorating, present wrapping, carol singing and Christmas parties in the last 10 days and that's only just at work with the kids! I've been writing cards (which have been posted late due to my travels to Canada, but mailed none the less!), decorating, Christmas shopping, crafting and cleaning (it makes the decorations seem nicer if the house is clean!) at home. Tomorrow night Steve and I are off to enjoy an eggnog latte at Starbucks (I've been craving one all week!) and we're going to buy each other's stocking stuffers, separately, of course! Is there anything more fun than opening a stocking on Christmas morning?! Saturday is being completely dedicated to Christmas baking. I even bought a new magazine full of yummy recipes that I can't wait to try! If all goes well, they'll make some super gifts for the neighbors:) We're not exactly sure what our plans are for Christmas just yet, but after a very exhausting 2 weeks in Canada, I'm looking most forward to a bit of down time, relaxing with my favorite boys! So, like I said, I love Christmas! The exciting energy is just contagious! Do tell...what are you most excited about this holiday season?:)

Cari...don't read my last blog post. I'm such a Christmas dreamer and you're such a Christmas doer. This is why we need to live closer to each other. I just realized I haven't even busted out ANY Christmas music. Like nadda one!
