Here is a little rehash on my Christmas and the month of December. It has gone by so quickly! I always get sad once Christmas is over, total post-Christmas-depression. But, seeing as how New Year's Day is tomorrow, I better get this Christmas post out there in the cyber world. And since blogging is all about the lists here is one for you!

  • skyping with sister in India multiple times
  • going ice skating at Gallivan on Christmas Eve
  • Having family over Christmas Eve for a feast and festivities
  • Dollar Tree reindeer antlers that I seemed to wear whenever I could
  • wearing an ugly Christmas sweater to work
  • decorating my apartment (did the lights on my tree all by myself, i'm a big girl, I know)
  • getting new Pj's and a new ornament
  • Christmas Story "ah the bumpus hounds" seems to be the quote of our family for the past week or so
  • many tears of joy Christmas morning when sisters opened gifts they adored

I've been thinking about some of my favorite Christmas memories today.. If any of you know my mother, then you'd know Christmas is a pretty big deal at our house so i've got memories and traditions galore. Here are some of my favs;
  • Waking up in the morning in CA to find a piece of Santa's suit stuck in the fireplace and huge white foot prints on the tile.
  • Staying up late on Christmas Eve while my sisters sleep and read Christmas books.
  • The drama of taking picture after lining up on the stair youngest to oldest Christmas morning. "Who's breathing their morning breath on me", "I look ugly", "so-and-so'd feet are touching me".
  • Mom and Dad stalling Christmas morning by taking pictures, turning on the music and the setting up of the video camera.
  • Getting a cell phone Junior year and crying my eyes out. Dad found one last present behind the tree afer we were done and it was my first phone.  
  • Laying under the Christmas tree after its all decorated.
  • One year we delivered gifts to a needy family, I don't remember much about that night cause I was young, but I remember being freezing, running away quickly, and loving the feeling afterwards.
  • Watching all the Christmas claymation movies.
  • Dancing to Lady Gaga all Christmas day at my dads last year.
  • Being so proud of my moms decorations and lights.
I've got so many happy memories of Christmas and so many good feelings when I think about it. I hope there are many more to come!

some people

Shout out to the person who commented on a post saying "no one gives a $#!&" and left it anonymous. Real cool. I hate when people sign things anonymous its cowardly. I used to give people the benefit of the doubt and I always thought that people were generally good...I'm slowly realizing I am very wrong. What a sad lesson to learn. On a lighter note, I love December and Christmas (I get it from my mom). The whole month of December is amazing. I love the music, the smell, the decorations, all the holiday stuff in the stores, its wonderful! I'm going to finish decorating my tree tonight. It's fake. I hate fake trees but i'm hardly home so I can't take care of a real tree. Plus if my cats are eating my fake tree, imagine what they'd do to my real one!
