Christmas Time is here

Can you even believe that it's Christmas time, again? This means a few things to me...
1) I have def got to finish painting and getting this house set up
2) My baby girl will be 1 very soon!
3) We head to FL in 3 weeks for a non-white Christmas

Today, Brad and I are working around the house - getting things cleaned up, rakes stored after the rest of the leaves are bagged (**yes, we STILL have leaves). I hope to get out my sewing machine to work on a mini-apron for Ava. She loves being in the kitchen with me and I thought it would be a cute idea to make her one. And of course there are the daily tasks: load the dishwasher, take the laundry to the basement, vaccum the living room, scrub the tub, sweep the kitchen floor... just another day in paradise! ;)

I still need to order some Christmas cards. However, the more I think about it... I really DO love writing our cards and just sticking a family pic inside. So, I may once again go the untraditional route and hand write our cards. I think I'm one of the only ones left who do this... oh well.
And, once all the house work is done at the end of this day - the Christmas music will be turned on and the boxes of decor rescued from the basement. {ahhhhh} I do so love this time of year. :)
