It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

...everywhere you go. The weather feels Christmas-y. The streets are full of Christmas traffic. Christmas music is on every station. Family is in for Christmas. There are Christmas parties and get-togethers. Christmas really is everywhere you go. Over the weekend, my mom, my aunt, and I hosted a Christmas party. I love hostessing, it is way fun. We served a really light menu of chicken salad on croissants, meatballs, raw vegetables, olive tempenade, dips w/ chips and of course yummy desserts like divinity and a variety of cookies. We sang Christmas carols and then a little variety of other music. My cousins are all very musically talented...and hilarious. So, they are always entertainment...you never have to worry about a dull moment. They have a band and they all play instruments. They wrote a couple of Christmas songs and produced a small Christmas album this year. I'm not being biased or anything, but it's really good. (OK, maybe a little biased). My cousin, her husband, and their new baby got here late Saturday night. I'm so excited! Her baby girl is the sweetest thing EVER! I waited up until 1:00 in the morning, just so I could be on of the first people to hold her...bragging right, you know. I wish I could say that I cleaned my house from top to bottom and that all my gifts were bought, wrapped, and under the tree; but I can't. Oh, well. I've just decided what gets done, gets done and the rest will just have to wait! (maybe until next year☺) Hope everyone is already enjoying Christmas! I'm trying to savor each moment so it doesn't go by too quickly.
