3 days!!!
I am soooooo excited (as I'm sure all of us are...)
I work until 7 on Christmas Eve, then I'm planning on cleaning my house because
my mom and Aunt arrive Christmas around noon! yayyyy!
Its the first Christmas morning with only me and Evan but I'm kind of excited!
its like we're big kids! haha..ha.
if you havent seen our tree..
this is it! just a tiny little thing. But it has presents around it now! (thanks T :))

I absolutely LOVE Christmas EVERYTHING. I love shopping for other people, listening to the music, baking, cooking, and this year I've handmade all of the cards that are going along with the presents. its been so fun!
some of my favorite Christmas songs are:

All I Want for Christmas is You- Vince Vants and the Valiants
(not to be confused with the song that Mariah Carey sings...which is another favorite)
I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas- Gayla Peevey
all of Amy Grant's Christmas album
Christmas Canon Rock-Trans Siberian Orchestra
any and all Mannheim Steamroller

We are only allowed to listen to Christmas music at work during the month of December, which (understandably) makes everyone end up hating Christmas music because its the same songs over and OVER...but I actually don't get sick of it! I just love it!!
I think the only songs I don't especially like are Rudolph and Frosty...also that Christmas shoes song. I mean I'm a sentimental person, but I do get sick of that song!

Evan and I are only getting stocking stuff for each other this year, because there's nothing that either of us really need or even want, and I'd rather just spend money on other people.

and, in my own experience, nothing has made me feel that "Christmas spirit" more than donating stuff,
either to Toys for Tots or for people on that Christmas tree at Walmart. I highly recommend it! it definitely gives the warm fuzzies
and brings that Spirit to the season.

Merry Christmas!!!
