What Christmas Means to Me, My Love!

It's one week until Christmas! The packages are not wrapped, nary a baked cookie in sight, but I'm on vacation and that's all that matters right now! 

The next few days are wrapping up to-do's for the week before heading home to Texas for Christmas with the folks. It's also the time I get to catch up on all things that make it feel more like Christmas for me! 

  1. Watch White Christmas, Grinch, It's a Wonderful Life, and Muppet Christmas Carol--you guys can keep your Hallmark channel! 
  2. Christmas light tour with Pyro Man, hot chocolate in hand
  3. Wrap pretty paper packages under the tree
  4. Listen to Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" album while wrapping said gifts
  5. Bake cookies of all kinds: sugar, molasses, and gingerbread!
  6. Cup of egg nog, anyone?
  7. Burn the best balsam and cedar candles I can find!
  8. Peppermint tea before bed
  9. Christmas pajamas for a good night's sleep
  10. Lot's of time spent by the Christmas tree
Who is ready to bake?! This gal over here!
