These are a few of my favorite things . . . to do during the Christmas Holidays!

"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things . . .'

1) Sipping egg nog and watching "Christmas Vacation".

"Don't throw me down Clark!"
"I won't Aunt Bethany!"

"Is the house on fire Clark?"
"No Aunt Bethany!"

"Oh Aunt Bethany, you really shouldn't have!"
"Oh dear, did I break wind?"
"Gees Bethany, did the room clear out? Heck no! She meant the presents!"

"Aunt Bethany will you say grace?"
(Aunt Bethany shakes her head no)
"GRACE - they want you to say Grace."
"Grace? She died 30 years ago."

Boy, that Aunt Bethany is sure good for some laughs!

2) Decorating the Christmas Tree

3) Stringing the lights outside . . .

With my little helper . . .

who decided that chasing the neighbor's cat would be more interesting!

4) Wrapping presents . . .
Ooopps - no picture for that -- haven't actually started doing that. Ahem! Anywhoo . . .

5) Kissing under the mistletoe

Ok - let me clarify -- first of all, there will be no pictures (you're welcome!) Secondly, hubby, I'm only referring to kissing YOU under the mistletoe. I mean ladies, just look at him!

6) Sipping on a warm cup of cider cozied up by a fire (is "cozied" even a real word? Um, well spell check says no. Well I say it is now -- this is my blog and I can do that if I want!)

6) Listening to this . . .

"When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad!"

Is that not the best Christmas CD EVER? It's my absolute favorite favorite favorite. His arrangement of "Go Tell It On the Mountain" makes me want to climb up on my rooftop and SHOUT! But I am a diehard James Taylor fan, so it was a gimme, for me. ;) Very cute pictures, m'dear.
