I am ready for Christmas to get here! My anticipation is absolutely heightened by the fact that my little brother comes home two days before. I am so full of Christmas cheer this year I could explode. Curtis and I took his parents to see Christmas Carol at Hale center theater for their Christmas gift and that put me even more into the Christmas spirit. I can not sing the songs Silent Night or Away in a Manger without getting so emotional. Being a mother now I am overwhelmed with the thought of what Mary went through. I am so grateful for all I have. I hope these next few days leading up to Christmas give you a chance to reflect on that Silent Night.

Very impressive list of checks. I have almost all of my shopping done, I have not baked or wrapped or delivered, I have watched barely any Christmas movies, no lights, I am a dismal failure at Christmas cards, and my food coma is yet to come.

And yet: I am so excited! Your Christmas house is so beautiful. This will be a wonderful, wonderful Christmas no matter what.

Love your Christmas Checklist. . .I feel as though all I am is overwhelmed. Excited? Yes! But still OVERWHELMED! I can never get out to get anything done and everytime I do I just walk aimlessly and it seems my trip was pointless. Not sure what my deal is! You are so on top of it!

I am excited too... all Christmas baking done today.

BEST time of year by far!! I totally agree with what you said about Mary. I feel the same way! Next year I am SO taking you to Savior of the World.

Wow I feel like Christmas has crept on me way too fast. Hoping to do Temple Square this week! I haven't seen the lights in over 3 years!

I'm furious. Not at your post, at your phone call. Beyond furious.....

Merry Christmas to you!
