Hooray for the Holidays!

by Becki D on November 22, 2010

OK, let’s get this ship turned around and ready for the holidays!

What do I love about the holidays?

1) Peppermint mochas.  Nothing goes better with a crisp winter morning than CoffeeMate’s Peppermint Mocha creamer in my coffee, and for a wintery evening treat it’s gotta be Starbucks Peppermint Mocha.

2) The cold weather makes the horses giddy!  I love watching them go nuts out in the pasture.

3) Holiday food.  Turkey, sweet potatoes, fancy dishes, desserts dressed in red and green….does it get any better?  Nope!

4) Christmas lights. I love, love, love driving around admiring everybody’s Christmas lights.  I can’t wait to see what Lauren thinks of them this year!

5) Stocking stuffers!!  I *love* giving and receiving little nothings in stockings.  It’s always been my favorite part of Christmas, and I can’t wait to pass that on to the girls.  Fun Fun Fun!

What about you?  What are your favorite things about this time of the year?

Tis the season!

Love your new holiday banner and all the things you like about the holidays. The cold weather makes my dog giddy too and he loves to eat newly fallen snow. I love stocking stuffers and relish opening each little package. Can never get enough turkey and the magic of the lights warms my soul. I’ve never had a peppermint mocha!

I love that holiday banner too! Here’s what I love this time of year, in addition to everything you said:

~Christmas cards and the yearly newsletters from people I don’t get to see often. Love having that update and pictures of the kids!
~Pumpkin flavored things — coffee, Blizzards…..but not granola bars. My pumpkin love did not cross over to granola bars. Ick. But the coffees and the blizzards, if only they would do that year round….
