Things that are making me happy so far this Christmas season .....

All the new ornaments that are "magically" appearing on our tree. The kids are enthralled!

TG for advent calendars - "No Katie! Father Christmas is not coming yet! Have you eaten all your chocolates yet? .... well ... you're just gonna have to wait".

My mighty Texan boot ornament (HB!!)

My Colorado moose ornament (thanks Lenore!)

The kids did all their Christmas cards yesterday and had such fun! Carols playing and stamping and stickering everything. Then they cut up last years cards and made collages!

We saw the big jolly man yesterday and finished our shopping! Woohoo! And my new CD is making me REALLY HAPPY!
What is making you smile so far?

What's making me happy so far this season... (1) I'm keeping up with my daily posts (2) Keeping up with my December Day-by-day album (3) So excited about my Photoshop class with Jessica Sprague.

Love your photos... and Katie's excitement.

Wow, you already have your Christmas tree ??!! Wow, that's so soon!!! Mine I will do next week or so?? I saw some Christmas trees around here in the houses, but most people do it next weekend, because it's not so nice for Sinterklaas to put already your Christmas tree up. Love the Santa, is he in your tree too ???

Yea!! It sounds like y'all are having a wonderful time preparing for Santa's visit!! Love the idea of doing collages with last years cards. I may have to try that with you know who...
What makes me happy? Getting my goodies shipped off to the land down under for my special friend and her family!! What would really make me happy...to be there to watch you open the package!! And NO I still haven't peeked at yours. It is under the tree waiting for Christmas Day!! LOL and I know I am driving you crazy too, na na na!!
