It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

It's almost Christmas, and it sure is looking like it at my house! I absolutely love the holidays and everything about them.  They bring family and friends together, make people cheerful, and are full of new and fun things, the gifts are amazing of course and just the holiday cheer.  This year because I'm going to school not to far from home, I get to come home on the weekends and help my mom and dad with the decorations, thankfully I had a say is the design and look of this years theme.  If you can't tell the theme my mom and I chose was blue, silver, purple, and white which mainly went in the dinning and living room.  Oh, and get this my mom even has color coordinating wrapping.  Another fun thing is this is the first year in a LONG time that we are pretty much done decorating the house, and it leaves things a lot less stressful!  Another exciting thing is, I decided to do the lights with my dad this year....well because of his back last year he didn't put the lights up...but I for sure didn't want to be the one house in the community who is boring and a holiday dud.   haha So we bonded and had some fun and man putting up lights is definitely laborious.  Because of another new addition to the family (Remmy the cat) we had to of course get him a stocking!  Its been great and I hope you all had just as much fun decorating or preparing for the holidays as I did! 
Well I cannot wait for Christmas Day is officially 16 days away! Can you believe it, feels like two days ago it was Thanksgiving.
