christmas time is here...

okay, so it's not really here yet. but i am so excited for christmas!!! christmas is just my favorite time of the year. i love christmas music. i love that my family goes to home depot and spends a very long time deciding on the perfect christmas tree using a specified formula that involves my brothers and i sniffing the tree to see if it is christmasy enough. i love that we go to my grandma's to make tamales. i love that i can dig mary out of the box of christmas decorations and hang her on my door (mary is this female stuffed reindeer made out of a sock. she has huge fake eyelashes and big red lips and is really ugly and i love her. i don't know where she came from, but she has hung on my door since i was like four, back when i named everything i owned mary). i love that my friends at school and i have an ornament exchange (we will just do it a little later this year, when caitlin and bailey get back from europe!). i love that the smell of cinnamon is in the air. i love that everyone is a little nicer and has a spring in their step. i love that i get to help my dad put up the christmas lights, but he does the tall parts that i can't reach. i love that my mom has been making the same christmas breakfast for the past 15 years at least, but it is the only time of the year we get it. i love that my family and i go to the christmas eve service at church and just have a great evening of worship, thanking God for sending His Son. i love that we get christmas cards from friends. i love everything about the christmas season!
