Liz's Twelve Things About Christmas

Yay! Christmas is upon us...
It actually snowed in San Antonio!
Well... technically, some little flurry things were flying around for ten minutes,
but it did "snow" haha.

Here are my twelve favorite things about Christmas.

Dressing for winter.
I'm getting this coat.

It even has a hood,
which I LOVE.
Rain, snow (Texas? Yeah, right), whatever.
I live for having a hood
because I've never had one on
a coat.
I'm crazy.

Holiday Parties.
Secret Santas.
White elephants...
Tacky Christmas Sweater themed parties.
Just heard of it.
Julia would be a hit at one of these
(She dressed as a "crazy cat lady" for halloween)
That would be so. much. fun.

Holiday drinks
Hot chocolate....oh and
when my sisters and I were little,
we used to make "Santa's Hats"
at my grandma's and it was SOOO FUN.
Santa Hat how-to:
vanilla ice cream
redi whip
red sprinkles
cherry on top.

The puppies freaking out on Christmas morning
because there is tissue and wrapping paper everywhere.
They get so excited.

Tuka-face under the tree :)

Fires and marshmallows
Although it is very, very rare that I actually do this
I think it is very fun to have a fire and all that jazz.

Doing things with your crazy extended family.
It can be quite funny.
Lots of material.
I could write books.

Okay, okay... I admit.
I am one of those people who can get kind of
grumpy about Christmas music stations.
(I know, I'm heartless, right?)
during the really Christmasy parts of Christmas,
I do like Christmas music :)
*especially in church.
We have a talented organist guy
that my mom thinks is cute.
Like, she wants me to date him cute.

Shopping for presents, specifically at
a bookstore or the mall.
I'm crazzzy about gifting.
It's my favorite thing to do.
I like planning gifts and preparing them.
Am I crazy?

Christmas lights
I like all the oak tree decorations.
Around the trunks, hanging from the branches.

Gingerbread houses
I don't think I've ever actually DONE THIS!
I know, what the heck is wrong with me??

This is right up my alley and
Allison made me get really excited in her

All the fun ones you made when you
were little + all of your cool new ones!
Hello Kitty and
R2D2 are on my tree.

Oh... okay one more.
Sending out cute little Christmas cards for the
first time!
They're so cute, I don't know what to do.
So a new one to add to the list:
Sending out cute Christmas cards.
I got three different cards and they all have
a type of winter bird on them.
I guess I like birds? lol


Allison said...

AWESOMENESS!! I am TOTALLY giving out my email.. I LOVE Christmas Cards! (Is it ymail or gmail?)

My favorite ornaments are the SUPER TACKY people ones. We won (from ornament exchanges and such) Elvis, Barbie, and Kristie Yamaguchi ornaments. Haha.. they are funny. :D

And you have SNOW?? That is incredible. And it totally counts- even if it doesn't stay!


Allison said...

I have another comment- where did you "get" the font for your blog header? Because it is TOTALLY cute.

Liz said...

It's ymail. It's yahoo. They're trying to be like gmail I guess, but just confusing everyone instead, lol

Kristie Yamaguchi ornament? No way!!!

I'll let you know about the fonts... Julia made my header and has these "mystery" fonts.

I love like all these things you posted. This year I am just in a super christmas-y mood and I am loving it. I have a tree at my apartment for the first time (by myself) and I love sitting in the dark with the lights on, it makes me happy!

I love Christmas. This post just got me in the mood to 'deck the halls'!

That yellow coat is to DIE for! I also love when jackets have hoods!!

Rasha @ and this is what she said... said...

That yellow coat is SOOOOOOO cute. I really really want it. I love Christmas.

SJ said...

What a lovely post! I love that coat.

It snowed here in Austin for like, 10 minutes, too. Then it was over. Bummer!

Marissa said...

I would have to agree, shopping for presents is my most favorite thing ever!

Miranda said...
