Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...

I love Christmas and the Holidays! I love the decorations. I love the smell of Christmas trees. I love the Christmas drinks (hello, gingerbread latte). And the music! Nothing better than a round of Jingle Bells to get me in the Holiday spirit. I love the lights and all the fun activities that come with the Holidays - visits with Santa, Christmas in the Park, and yes, the SHOPPING. Love it all. 

We still have to make a visit to Santa for the obligatory picture, but we are planning it for this weekend.  This year, we will be avoiding the mall Santa in favor of having brunch with Santa. Not that I'm a snob or anything.  I find it more festive taking pictures with Santa while we're stuffing our faces, not standing in a long line. In any case, our tree has been decorated and out cards have been sent. OK, the cards have not been sent out, but the tree has been decorated.  Here are some pictures to prove it.  Complete with the smiling family.
