As most of you know, I LOVE Christmas. Jared calls me a Christmas Spaz, and its pretty true. I love everything about Christmas...the lights, the sounds, the smells, the food, the gifts. I love it all. Since the Brits dont have a holiday between Halloween and Christmas, as soon as Halloween is over, they start gearing up for Christmas.
So, last week we put on National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (which is THE greatest Christmas movie of all time, right Gramps?) and put out all our decorations! We are all set for Christmas! This is the first Christmas that we wont be in North Carolina, well, I mean, Christopher's missed Christmas' before, but I never have. So, this will be our first Christmas that we wake up on Christmas morning and come downstairs to our tree. I'm pretty excited about that...although, I have to work Christmas morning, which completely sucks, but I'll hopefully bring some Christmas cheer to people who are stuck in a hotel in a new country on Christmas day. After I get off work, we're planning on having a bunch of people over and having a big Christmas dinner! I'm not sure what I'm going to cook yet, since I'll be at work all day, but we'll see!
Without further ado, enjoy our Christmas decor!

The big tree!!! This is before I finished the topper, but you get the idea. We have a TON of ornaments. This is only the second time we've put a tree up since we've been married and it was awesome to see all our ornaments. We have everything on there from Santas to Nativities, to Barbies, to shoes. Its pretty awesome and random and I love it! Mymom said the other day you could take the topper off my tree and it could easily be hers or Mom's tree, which is awesome! :)
