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?
