Christmas Eve

I can’t believe it’s Christmas Eve already! I also can’t believe that I didn’t ask for any American Girl stuff this year. I’m just happy with my collection at the moment. The only dolls I’d really like to buy are Felicity and #64.

Anyway, I took some pictures of Ivy by the Christmas tree. Enjoy. 🙂

I was playing around with the settings on my camera and got these two shots.

Are you hoping to receive a doll tomorrow? If so, which one?

Emily got around to writing her letter to Santa today. It says:

Dear Santa,

For Christmas, I would like a camera, running shoes, and a mini doll.

Love, Emily.

I went Christmas shopping with my mom today. We found gifts for my brother, my dad, and one of my friends. Mom tried sneaking a gift into the basket while I wasn’t looking . . . it didn’t work. She ended up putting it back because I told her I already had something similar (also, I had seen the present . . . so it wouldn’t be much of a surprise). 😛 Nice try, Mom!

Out of everything on your Christmas list, what do you want the most?

I love baking cookies around Christmastime! I made a batch last night and they’re delicious. (You can see a post about it here.)

What’s your favorite type of cookie? I’m a huge fan of gingerbread.

Tracy and MJ decided to take the snowmobile out for a spin! (I just made Tracy’s beanie and I love it.)

What’s your favorite winter activity? I like ice skating and snow tubing (and being lazy all day in pajamas).

I skipped a day, huh? I was hanging out with some friends, so I’m not really sorry. I got to practice my sick gymnastics skills on my friend’s trampoline.

A common Christmas tradition is going to see The Nutcracker performed by a ballet company. One of my best friends is a dancer (she played a unicorn and a snowflake this year), so even though I didn’t watch her performance, I’ve heard a lot about it.

Have you ever seen the Nutcracker? If you were a dancer in it, what role would you want?

One of my favorite things about winter? (Well, despite the fact that all the bugs go somewhere to die.) Sweaters! They’re cozy and soft and so cute. 🙂

Nevaeh, Ivy, and Eve are modeling some of my favorite doll sweaters. And Eve looks really cute in Molly’s meet sweater . . . I wonder why I never tried it on her before?

What does your favorite sweater look like?
