Happy Friday! Wow. This week seemed like it was only two days instead of five. Does that ever happen to you? I’m okay with it. We’re now that much closer to Christmas!
We have been busy over here with all the usual holiday prep. We went with my parents and my brother and his family on our annual visit to see Santa. OMG Becky was coming from another gathering missed out on seeing Santa. Such a naughty girl.
I have to point out something. Notice how everyone except my youngest niece are all looking at the photographer?
She is giving me severe stink eye! Why? Because I was wearing my medical walking boot. She is terrified of it! She thinks it’s going to eat her. Maybe she thinks it’s eating me from the toes up? She has been giving me this look non-stop since I got it on 4+ weeks ago. (I’ll try to post an update on my foot injury later this weekend.)
After Santa and lunch…
…we have another tradition of picking out a new ornament at Hallmark. There I found my most favorite ornament ever!
Crayola Crayons “Big Box of 64!” I remember getting this box of crayons for Christmas every year. I loved all the sharp, new crayons!
I came home from a work one day to find Christmas had explored all over the living room.
Sassy took it upon herself to decorate the tree. She got tired of waiting for the rest of us!
There has also been more batches of sugar cookies baked than I can count.
I think I’ll be finding colored sugar all over the house for months to come!
There has also been lots of shopping. I’ve found some great deals! I love the thrill of the hunt. I even like saving a few items to shop for until Christmas Eve morning or the day before. I like getting up really early, grabbing coffee, and then shopping leisurely. I usually have the stores pretty much to myself until around 9 or 10 AM. It’s magical!
What is your favorite holiday tradition?
