♪ It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas... ♪

Everyone tells me that you're supposed to wait till after Thanksgiving to decorate, but...I hate that idea. So we went out and did this.
Target is THE BEST for Christmas decorations. I am very thankful that I was able to convince my family this year to decorate the house before Thanksgiving! ;)

This is our beautiful tree. Ah... it makes me so happy just looking at it! These pictures only show part of the Christmas decorations. Right now I am sitting at the table on the laptop, and the entire table is almost completely covered with Christmas decorations we still need to put up.. But, is there really such thing as decorating too much? There is never too much Christmas spirit. :D
My family had SO much fun listening to Christmas music and decorating our house last night. And afterwards, we treated ourselves to a bowl of Peppermint ice cream. :)
ALSO-- I have a new blog email address: authorofmyhopecontact@gmail.com
Is there such thing as too much Christmas spirit? Have YOU decorated your house for Christmas yet? ;)

Christmas Spirit...in November?

You know your mom is awesome when she makes you an acai (pronounced ah-sai-ee) bowl!

Things around here have been pretty exciting, knowing that Christmas will be here in 41 days. You may be wondering--is that a Christmas countdown on your sidebar? Already? On November 13? Yes. Yes it is. Just watch the seconds tick byyyy.

Have you started getting ready for Christmas? My mom looked at me a little crazy when I started talking about my Christmas decorating plans in the beginning of November. Haha, I guess I got a little too excited. :)

My family got family photos done on Sunday, and let's just say we laughed. A lot.

Roby just looked at this photo, and said, "We should keep that photo. It shows who we really are." That couldn't be more true! ALSO~~Just to clarify, Roby is NOT taller that me. I am just sinking down in the sand in this photo. :D It will be a little while before he can beat my 5-foot-8 height. :)He's still my baby brother, and he is not taller than me. Yet. ;)

I have been listening to allll the Christmas music--White Christmas, Jingle Bells, Carol of the Bells, Let it Snow, Noel, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, What Child is This, Jingle Bell Rock, All I want for Christmas is you....I could go on forever. This is my favorite kind of music!

Do yourself a favor and listen to this Christmas song...it is so peaceful and exactly what got me into the Christmas spirit in the first place.


Later this week we are going Christmas decorations shopping and I am thrilled to decorate our house inside and out. Would you like to see photos?! :D

So--currently getting ready for Christmas, and trying to understand Algebra. What about you?
