Winter is just...




...just barely starting and I am already tired of it.  Look what I had to deal with today:

Can you believe it?  Ugh.

So.  To cheer us all up, I decided to treat you to a pictorial of my Christmas decorations.  I LOVE Christmas.  Despite the fact that it is in the winter, Christmas is still my absolute, hands-down FAVORITE holiday.  Not because of the presents, although, I would be a liarliarpantsonfire if I said I didn't like getting presents, but because everyone seems so much nicer to people during this time.  Annnnddddd...I love the decorations. :)

 This is my tree.

 This was my very first ornament.  I believe my Nana made it for me when I was born. :)

 My dad made this ornament for my first Christmas.  It's the partridge in a pear tree.  Sadly, no more followed.  I think it must have been my brother's fault.  ;)

 My Nana made this one, too.

 One of miss raven's first ornaments.

 This shouldn't surprise anyone who knows me. :)
As an interesting side note, my BFF has one JUST LIKE IT.  :)

 I think this was ornament number three or four.  We used to get special ornaments just for us every year.

The angel on the top of my tree.  I love my angel.  She was a cheapy from K-mart.

 I have a thing for case you couldn't tell.

 Can't take the credit for this dad made it for me several years ago. :)

Santa door hanging-thing. best Christmas present ever. :)

Tomorrow may or may not be the last day of school before the break.  It will depend on what happens with the weather.  Either way, I won't know until the morning, so I can't sleep in.  As much as I would love to start my vacation a day early, I really don't want the kids to miss out on their parties.  Especially since we would have to do them when we came back from break and NO ONE wants that!

Time to decide if having ice cream is worth it or not tonight.

Toodles! :)
