Deck Those Halls (and long-suffering Labs)

Its so weird, but I am really getting in the mood for Christmas, already! I usually catch the spirit the day after Thanksgiving, when I am caught up in Black Friday shopping, and the decorations go up, etc.
But I'm ready now!
So tell me, what are you most looking forward to during the Christmas season this year?

These are such cute photos!!! LOVE them! I sure hope you are a scrapbooker and getting these in your family albums... very nice!

I am looking forward to capturing one special thing each day of December and putting it into a special album (yes, the scrapbooker!)

I love your photos and the snow is just gorgeous!!!! Oh yes, I too have been in the mood to get all the Christmas goodies up, but I feel guilty taking down the turkeys and cornucopias too soon! You know last Christmas was really sad with my mom's diagnosis on Christmas Eve, and this year will be sad too as if she should live past the holiday, it will be our last Christmas together. So, I think what I am most looking forward to this holiday season, is time with family...time to reflect on the birth of Jesus, time to appreciate our blessings both at Christmas and throughout the year! :-)

I have no idea what I'm looking forward to for Christmas even though I'm getting in the mood.

Oh your "poor" dogs! So cute. I'm looking forward to our little Nativity scene. (It's really really small, but precious.) My kids and I put up each figure during the weeks before Christmas and then Christmas morning we put in Jesus. My kids love it and it's really my only serious tradition.

Ya'll should come visit us down South here (MN down South? BWAHAHAH!). The girls would *love* the MOA...hehe. You can actually vacation near it. And the airport is like...across the street from it (ok a few streets up).

That dog is adorable!! For the Holidays I like all the special treats, Holiday specials on TV and I love to shop! The thing I like the best is my Christmas trees!!

I'm looking forward to my dad arriving and our trip to Scotland (it's a surprise for him).

One of my most favorite Christmas traditions is going to MIL's fave restaurant, and then driving around and looking at the lights together. It's just a good time together, and no stressing out about anything! :-D
