Do you remember that month called December? Yeah? You do? So do I. It's actually my favorite month of the year. Yes it's true. I'm one of THOSE people. The type that absolutely love and adore anything Christmas-y. The whole kit and caboodle from the cold (hopefully white) weather, to the decorations, to the craziness. I especially love the beautiful carols celebrating our Lord. It is the one time of year I actually decorate stuff. The one time of year you can actually count on me baking stuff. The one time of year I usually go a little over the top. (Okay maybe it's not the only time I go over the top just a little, but it's definitely the most over the top.) I plan months in advance what all is going to go down during that special month of December. Yes I said months, and yes I'm serious. Just ask hubby, or really anybody that's known me for more than 30 seconds. Now even though I love Christmas, I'm not an early Christmas-er. I'm actually a little bit of stickler about that. Christmas starts on December 1st, not before and not after. This year was no different......

Actually it was.

Really different.

Most of you know why so I'll just skip ahead to Christmas Day shall I?


I can't really hear you, there's too much protesting going on.

No skipping you say?

Okay fine. I'll tell it in pictures, since I'm pretty sure that's what you're begging for anyway, right?
