In the Christmas Mood!

I'm finally in the Christmas mood! We spent most of our weekend decorating the inside of the house.
I love ornaments! For the past 18 or so years, we have had an ornament exchange with my side of the family. It is a blast and we love "stealing" ornaments from each other until they are "frozen"upon touching the 3rd person! This tradition started around the time M & I started dating and has gone on from just a few to as many as 20 people on the last Christmas with my beloved Grandma a few years back (we knew it was going to be her last X-mas so I invited everyone to join). And now we celebrate our 2nd annual exchange at a local pizza parlor when my sister who now lives out of state comes for the holidays since my sister and I have lots of mutual friends. So with the exchange, we gain 4 new ornaments a year which means we have a very large collection! I didn't even have room for all of them this year on our tree!
One of my favorites is below!
S & I also had time to do a craft. (More on this tomorrow)
I also have been enjoying lots of treats! I'm in trouble because I have a big sweet tooth right now and hope I don't gain too much weight during the Holidays;)
Yummy Hershey Candy Cane Kisses

These creamy Lindt Truffes (thanks to Cost Plus World Market for giving me a sample). Instant love for the dark chocolate ones; the blue ones). Love Schwan' Peppermint Stick Ice cream! Not too pepperminty; just perfect!And love this in my coffee!Hope you, too, are in the Christmas Mood!

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!"
