Christmas is just 14 days away and to be honest I am almost ready. Most of the gifts I needed to get are already wrapped and under the tree. I have yet to get my Christmas Cards in the mail but that will happen next week! Once that is done I will get to spend the remaining two weeks with my guys and of course preparing for other family dinners.
Next weekend we will head off to partake in one of our favorite “family” traditions: Driving around looking at christmas lights. Now this is something most families probably do but I often wonder if they do it “like we do.” We pick a weekend night (preferably a snowy one) and we get all dressed up in our pajama’s (including our slippers) and we hop in the car. We take a quick detour through Starbucks for peppermint flavored coffee and hot chocolate and then we spend 1-2 hours wandering through neighborhoods and city streets. Of course the radio is playing christmas music and the mood is all set. For some reason I look forward to this event every year. We laugh, we sing, we admire the beauty of the lights and if we get lucky the snowfall makes it even more magical. This is the one event we have done every year since our son was born 9 years ago and it is the one thing I won’t miss!
So to get me in the mood for the holiday season….I have been “pinning” alot of Christmas themed images on Pinterest and I wanted to share some of my favorites here with you today. If you want to follow me on Pinterest just CLICK HERE.
