Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

I've got to say... Its pretty difficult to believe its Christmas when its 80+ degrees outside...
Boo to that!
When I was little, it felt like it somehow always managed to get cold for Christmas day! 
Yeah, not so much anymore!

But sweater weather or not, I could not be happier that its Christmas! Like I've said quite a few times this year- this is my absolute favorite holiday. There's so much feel good-ness in the air. I LOVE finding great presents for my loved ones and spoiling them rotten. Budgeting during my holiday season is always worth it when I see their faces opening their gifts!
And it's finally here!!
I hope no one is offended by me posting one more Christmas post after the fact. I did some very creative wrapping this year but everyone I know and love reads my blog- so I didn't want to give it away! I also didn't want you all to miss out on the fruits of my labor. Because I worked my booty off on it!

For Christmas, I wanted to share a special post with you all.
I owe my child-like spirit at the holidays to my parents- so this post is for them. You all get to come along for the ride to. Here are some pictures to show you how cool I've always been at Christmas time and...
A new vlog!
With a special holiday story and message... So enjoy!

My very first Christmas!

I believe this is the year I was REALLY sick for Christmas morning... and I got my first kitchen! 

My loot! Nothing says "future domestic goddess wannabe" quite like a toy washing machine! I LOVED that thing!!!

 My big sister and I (more often than not referred to as "Broder")
Rockin' the matching sweaters!

So Merry Christmas all you lovelies!  I hope Santa was good to all of you. No doubt there will be some fun posts about everyones Christmas adventures... Can't wait to read them all! 

Here's hoping your holidays were not TOO much like a scene out of "Christmas Vacation"...
