on the eve of christmas

Saturday, December 24, 2011

Happy Christmas eve, blog friends! The ground is still green, but christmas cheer is oh so strong. We're spending the night at our grandparent's, as we do every year. We're already having such a lovely time.

/// so many christmas secrets
/// dipping pretzels in chocolate
/// baking messes, of course
/// brown paper packages tied up in strings
/// warm houses
/// breakfast, lunch, and dinner
/// mint m&m's (which are my favorite)
/// knitting
/// writing
/// photographs
/// christmas lights
/// laughter
/// packing for the night at grandma's
/// the fact that my little sister brought a lantern so she could see her way to the bathroom
/// christmas cookies
/// shouting "it's a christmas miracle" after everything new/odd/unusual happens
/// opening secret santa presents on christmas eve
/// the stack of gifts in the corner
/// playing games
/// watching it's a wonderful life
/// listening to christmas music

  4. sounds like a wonderful Christmas :)

    I looove the sidebar! except for one thing... i sorta don't get how it says your blog is "concealing" your thoughts, photos, and words. seems more like revealing :)

    Merry Christmas! :)

    oops, i used too many smiley faces again.

  5. It sounds like you're having a beautiful Christmas! I love the second photo, your little sister's lantern, and...basically everything about this post. Merry Christmas! <3
