Christmas Spirit.... I have been having trouble getting into the Christmas spirit this year. Dunno why, but I have. But today broke that trend, and now am feeling it a bit more. The reason? Getting together with the girls for Homemade Christmas exchange. I got all the final things together this morning, and something snapped in me. Prior to today I'd even gone so far as to tell Aaron we shouldn't jack around with a tree this year. But after getting everything together, it just changed. Am finally in the Christmas spirit. Leave it to a relaxing afternoon with the girls to get me in the right frame of mind. Everyone seemed to love their stuff, and we just had a good afternoon together. Love my girlfriends. Before I left, I told Aaron to wait for me to do the tree. Glad I did.

....My booty! *grins* The Santa Ornament and Cookie mix are from Rebecca. The scarf from Stephenie. The wallet from Katie (which matches my purse! woot!). And the picture from Judy. I'm so blessed to have such a great group of women in my life.

Love decorating the tree! I'm glad you had a good day. That definitely helps with the spirit of the season.

The wife is on a board and they have a contest to see who can give the most tacky/obscene gift to each other... some of that stuff is hilarious... The flamingo wearing a bikini and santa hat ornament was a classic.
