The greatest gift & holiday busyness

Wait did you hear that? It's the sound of any free time before Christmas flying out the window. We're officially in Christmas bustle.

Last night we celebrated Christmas with our sweet friends we received some awesome gifts but more importantly we all rejoiced in the fact that this Christmas we have been given the best and most perfect gift any of us could ask for the gift of friendship! The holiday season has meant more to Mr. A and I this year than any we've spent together because we've spent it surrounded by loving caring people!

Tonight we're going to "Christmas In The Park" it's a humongous lights display that even has some animated displays of lights that blink in time with certain radio stations it's AWESOME!! I'm so excited because we're going with our sweet friends Mr. & Mrs. W and their little girl who is nearly 2 and at that stage where she oohs and ahhs over the lights so ADORABLE!!

Tomorrow night we're doing Christmas movie night at friends house just for fun, Saturday night we're headed to another awesome lights display a few hours away with our friends Mr & Mrs. S. Sunday I'm baking the last of my Christmas cookies for my co-workers and working on a special cookie display for my work secret pal I finally get to reveal who I am although I think she might know!!

Monday I'm taking my momma to look at Christmas lights like she used to do with me when I was a kid except now I'm driving :)! Mom's doing well they're still talking about doing a bone marrow transplant after Christmas and although I'm not looking forward to the effects it will have on her I ultimately know it will be to her benefit! When I get home tonight I'm going to upload the pics from "The Nutcracker" last weekend we had so much fun and my awesome wonderful husband got us fantastic seats!! I always get teary eyed thinking about my tradition of going to "The Nutcracker" because it's something I've done since I was a little girl and I told my mom Friday evening that if Mr. A and I are blessed with a baby girl when the time comes I want to start this very tradition with her when she's old enough. It was always something so special that my mom and I shared and I want to pass that down to her.

Then Tuesday and Wednesday we're prepping for our Annual Christmas Eve Party. Then it's officially Christmas!!

Hope you all are as excited as I am about the week ahead!!

Later Alligators....

You are the busiest gal I know! But everything sounds wonderful. :) Have a blast!

Mrs.LifeAccounts said...

Sounds wonderful! I've been having so much trouble getting myself into the holiday spirit this year, the busyness just kicked in too early this year! I'm really looking forward to Christmas being over this year (sad as that sounds), maybe I'll move to celebrating Christ's birth in March, when He was actually born! It'll be way less commercialized and over-commited then, right? :)
