Holiday Rush

For the past few days after Thanksgiving I've been doing some decorating in our home making it as cozy and Christmas-y as possible.  Seems like every year I acquire more and more decorations whether it's from my Mom or from after Christmas sales at the stores (which I love).  I always forget what I've purchased and it's always a nice surprise whenever I open my storage box of decorations.  Every year, I always try to give handmade gifts to family and friends, hopefully I will finish them in time for gift giving!  I'm hoping to get some baking done as well, but maybe I'll wait until my sister comes home from school since she's the baker in the family.  I don't know about you but I love the holidays.  It's become very different since I was younger, but my family still tries to continue our traditions and sometimes start new ones.  What are you looking forward to this holiday season?

I always get really excited to open up the boxes storing my Christmas stuff because I also buy stuff on the sale the year before and then totally forget what I have in them!

we don't go too crazy with the decorations, but we do have a 'pine' garland with lights that sits a top the entertainment center all year long. when novemeber comes, we flip on the lights. done.

This year I'm excited to hang our stockings on the mantelpiece of our new home. We didn't really have anywhere to hang our stockings at our old suite, and I'm big on traditions ever since I got married. I wish I had more time to make handmade gifts this year!

I'm looking forward to the holidays in New York! I'm leaving the city pretty late this year so I'll be able to enjoy the decorations for a long time!

I love this time of year. Right now I am very stressed out with work, trying to finish up things before the year ends. I'm not a very crafty person but I love baking and try to make lots of candy, cakes, breads, and cookies to give to friends and family members.
