My Favorite Things.

I totally jacked this idea from Ashley. :)

Here are my favorite things about the month of December/Christmas Time:

*All the goodies. Seriously, at what other time of the year is it acceptable to gorge yourselves on brownies, candy canes, chocolate, and figgy pudding?
*Being with family.
*Christmas Music. (Sufjan, Barenaked Ladies, Andrew Peterson, Sarah MacLachlan... I also watched this "Celtic Women Christmas concert" on PBS that I really enjoyed. I realize this makes me nerdy, but it was REALLY good.)
*Children's Christmas Programs
*Teaching the school kiddos about the reason why we have the decorations we do on our Christmas Tree.
*High School Christmas Party and drive-by caroling
*Middle School students "singing" and "playing chimes" for the "blue hairs" at the nursing home.
*Christmas Parties
*Shopping for presents for those less fortunate
*Illinois. Please have snow and mistletoe and presents under the tree!
*Reading, "The Worst Christmas Pageant Ever." It's my holiday tradition!
*Christmas Eve Service. Singing Silent Night by candlelight.
*Lighting the advent candles one week at at time.

OH! I also forgot!
*Christmas Pajama Pants for Jules and Jamie!
