Emily got around to writing her letter to Santa today. It says:
For Christmas, I would like a camera, running shoes, and a mini doll.
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?
Twelve Days Till Christmas . . .
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.
Thirteen Days Till Christmas . . .
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.
Fourteen Days Till Christmas . . .
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?
Sixteen Days Till Christmas . . .
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?
It’s finally December, the month of Christmas and lights and candy canes and phenomenal festive stuff like that. Bloggers generally do special series for Christmas, and I have been planning one myself. Until Christmas, I’ll be posting a festive photo of my dolls per day. Or trying to, at least.
Seventeen Days Till Christmas . . .
Ah, cocoa. A blessing from the heavens. Make it in a pot, in the microwave, over a fire, or in a crock pot. And the ways to spruce it up are endless! My personal favorite way is with tons of whipped cream and marshmallows and minty stuff. Mint M&Ms, candy canes, mint Coffee Mate . . . so good. ♥
If you’re in the mood for a laugh, I posted this rather fabulous thing on my other blog called How to Make the Perfect Cup of Hot Cocoa. So that’s a thing.
Merry seventeen days till Christmas, loves!
