Christmas is a week away and I am ready. This is our first year with a tree, in the past we would string lights on our giant palm plant and call it good. We decorated the tree last Sunday while watching "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" and I have been busy wrapping gifts all week and placing them under the tree. My sweet Aunt gave us a wonderful gift to help ease preparing for the holidays...a giant green and red tub full of an assortment of decorations for our tree.
I look forward to spending time with my family next week. I love this time of year and I get a little giddy every time I look at our tree lit up so bright. It reminds me of the excitement you experience as a child, the build up to Christmas morning. I am relieved that most of my preparations are done and I can spend the rest of the week relaxing before the festivities begin.
What are some of your favorite things about the Holidays?
