25 Days of Blogging: December 7th-11th
I hate picking a "most" or "best" so here are a few:
*Getting that castle I mentioned before
*Being in Big Bear as a kid and it snowed
*Last year sitting in Urgent Care on Christmas Eve with a bladder infection
*3 years ago when we left for Hawaii early on the morning after Christmas
*The year my cousin got a kitten and I was super jealous
*Two years ago when I wrapped all of Donny's Christmas presents at 2 am on Christmas morning because I ran out of time to do it earlier
8. Post a picture of Christmas Decor:
9. Easiest person to buy for is by far, my husband. He never buys anything for himself but all year long adds to his Amazon Wishlist with CDs & DVDs he wants. It's great because they're cheap and I know it's exactly what he wants. I tend to go a little overboard on his gifts but I figure, hey, I buy myself stuff all year long, so it's only fair I buy him stuff once or twice too. (I really hope he doesn't read this post - I don't want him to know I buy stuff for myself all the time...)
10. Favorite holiday scent is cinnamon! I love buying and decorating with those scented pinecones mmmm...
11. My favorite Christmas tradition is one I haven't actually started yet but I'm excited to make happen.
Both Donny and I are really blessed to live close to both of our families. Which means that during the holidays we can feasibly do both families on the same day - sometimes more than once. So this year I want to host and make people come to me for once, so I'm hosting a Christmas day brunch with both sides of the family together.
And I know you didn't ask for it, but here's our crazy schedule:
5-6 PM - church
7-10 PM - Donny's brother's house in Valencia
11 PM - 2 AM - Gabby's dad's family at parents in San Gabriel (this is the Mexican side of the family that opens presents at midnight)
8 AM - Donny & Gabby open presents ALONE together at home
10 AM - 12 PM - Family brunch at our place
12 PM - 4 PM - Donny's parents house in San Gabriel
4 PM - 9 PM - Gabby's parents house in San Gabriel
It sounds crazy but it's fun and I love seeing everyone throughout the day.
As always - feel free to post your answers to these questions in the comments!
