::over coffee::

Good morning!  I've been up since 'o dark thirty.  First things first, I brewed a pot of Community Coffee and added a touch [well, really a gulp] of Peppermint Mocha creamer to my cup.  Christmas in a cup.  Seriously.

Since we're chatting over coffee, the very first thing I would show you is THIS Christmas card.  Hilarious.  I was/am considering buying it and sending to friends.  We.  Will.  See.

I get a big chuckle every time I read it!!

We might get snow tonight.  If we do and if it sticks and if my brother actually get to plow, I will consider it the first "big" snow.  :)

I am in the most tremendous Christmas mood.  And I must wonder why the Christmas season is so short.  Today, invitations to a cookie exchange are going in the mail.  I am super ----> duper -----> pumped to have a small get together.  Besides all the fun Christmas activities at church and the decorations at home, one of the best things about the season in general is the excitement of the kids that I babysit/nanny.  Seriously, their joy + excitement is contagious.  Thursday is a big day.  It's the day they get to open their Advent calendars and Jingle comes to visit.  Plus, there's the Christmas party at the country club + St. Nick's day + birthday parties + so much more sprinkled over the next few weeks....I got the low-down on the way home from school yesterday.  Their excitement is catching and very, very darling.

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Linking up with Amy over here....

Yeah. For me Christmas means snow, and since I live in California now I never feel the "Christmas mood" until I go out and see all the decorations..., and still... it's not the same as with snow.lol
In Poland we decrate our Christams Three and houses a week or a few days before Christmas Eve and we take it all down in the first week of February - that's one more difference I need to deal with now... :)
It's not that bad, though. Christmas is Christmas :)
Have a wonderful day.
So jealous about that coffee of yours!
