Merry Christmas {my favorite things}

Christmas is right around the corner! I cant believe how fast it has come. Every year it seems like it sneaks up on me. Anyway, as I was thinking about how soon Christmas would be here I started compiling a list of my favorite things about the holidays.

I always look forward to watching Christmas movies with my sister.

And I love snuggling up on the couch with my family by the fire.

I adore Christmas songs, listening to them and singing them too! Fa La La La La

And it is hard to beat the excitement of Santa, especially whenever there are youngins around.

(I love the old Coca-Cola Santas)

Of course it is better to give then to recieve. I do love presents though...I am a big fan of surprises!

And who can resist all of the yummy cookies and treats that are always around at Christmas?

But my FAVORITE part of Christmas, is remembering that we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, who God sent to Earth for all men. That is the reason we celebrate and the reason for gathering with loved ones. Nothing will ever beat the gift that God gave to us in a manger.

Merry Christmas!
