MerrY ChristmaS!

I just love Christmas time. I love the transformation of the city, the lights, Christmas trees and Santa. I love Christmas music and movies, cookies, hot chocolate, and sweaters. I would like to be Mrs. Clause when I grow up! I love planning and hunting for the perfect present for my hubbie and kids. It truely is a magical time of year...
Some of my favorite Christmas traditions...
1. Light Hunting (driving around with Christmas music on and looking at all of the lights)
2. Temple Lights (we were sick this year the day we were going to go and we never were able to fit it in- so sad!)
3. Movies (my favorites are Elf, The Santa Clause, Home Alone, The Grinch- the cartoon, and Joy to the World)
4. Christmas Music
5. Decorating the Tree and the house
6. Christmas outfits and Pictures
7. A visit to Santa
8. Sugar cookies and Orange Rolls
9.Reading/acting Christmas Story
10. Visiting with Family
**note to self, Do Not go anywhere Christmas Eve! I ran to get my perscription filled at Walgreens and I got honked at when I turned into the parking lot. I couldn't get out of the parking lot because everyone else was determined to leave first and the other cars were flying through as if the parking lot was a speedlimit "free" zone. Then as I pulled out into the center divide a car came flying around another car honking and flipping him off out the window! What the??!!! I felt like I was in an alternate universe- didn't these people know it was Chirstmas Eve!?!?! Yikes. Well luckily I made it home in one piece! But next year I think I will hide out in the saftey of my own house! Other than that it was a great Christmas! I hope your was too!
