It is the most wonderful time of the year! The radio has been tuned to KOIT 96.5 since November 18th, when I heard the first Christmas song of the season and has not been turned off once - I really do think the cats enjoy it when we are out and about!!
Most of the holiday to do list is done...I delivered some fun toys and much needed donations to The Bay Area Crisis Nursery and know they will go to good use, the house is decorated and ready to go, although I am debating adding more lights out front - the cool white LED lights just don't give off the holiday glow I am looking for.
The trees are done, yes, we have two this year! Emmie gets her very own little tree, because it is cool to have more than one tree, and it is her first Christmas! Oh alright, the real reason is I am super picky about my type of tree and particular about each year's theme. Crazy right?? This year's tree theme is snow and the tree is covered in silver, white and blues. I love glitter ornaments, especially old school ones, and always, always have white lights on my tree.
The thing I have yet to complete, ummmm, should I say start...is my Christmas shopping. It is so hard to find the perfect gift! I must let you in on a little secret though...one little gift I am giving my hubby and daughter this year is a mini vacay from blogging. So, this will be my last post of 2010, and I will resume the week of January 10th bright eyed and bushy tailed!!
Happy Holidays my friends and I will see you in the new year and I can't wait! I hope Santa brings you all that you dream of and more...
