I loveeeeeeeee counting down to Christmas. We actually have two "countdown" decorations here in our house. The first one is one that we got that day in the village and the other one I got for Christmas last year.
When we decorated this year, the dude tried to tell me that I had to get rid of my old one, because it was silly to have two countdowns in the same wee apartment. Ha! What does he know? We are having two Christmases, so why wouldn't we have two countdowns?
Here is a shot of my Christmas countdowns today (Note: I countdown in terms of how many sleeps until Christmas):
Yes, that's right. One of those countdowns says TWO days until Christmas. We are busy getting ready to have Evan's family here for the weekend to celebrate Christmas!
During the day, while he's working, I've been busy grading, transcribing and wrapping up my work for the term and in the evenings we've been bustling around making lists (well I have been anyway), finishing the shopping, wrapping gifts, getting the house ready, preparing food and trying to keep our sanity!
We have a full weekend of festivities planned. From Friday night appetizers and games at Caley's, to brunch and gifts here on Saturday morning, to a gift exchange and dinner with the extended family on Saturday night, to church and leftover lunch on Sunday! Also, I am totally pumped to finally get to meet and hold my baby nephew!
I will take lots of pictures and be sure to fill you in on all the details on Monday. Because, well, clearly your lives revolve around our family Christmas.
Wowza! It's going to be a good one. I can't believe there are only two sleeps until Christmas!
