It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Friday night began the Christmas season for me.  My company had its annual Holiday party at the hotel next to our office.  I don't remember having so much fun at a company party.  Ever.  There were tons of amazing prizes (I won a Samsung Galaxy 3 Tab!!!), lots of great food, drinks and an amazing DJ.  I think I sat for a grand total of about 30 minutes all night.  It was just awesome!  I stayed at the hotel, so it was a late night, and I was very sore the next day (my knees and feet were begging for mercy after a long night of dancing and my ears were ringing for the entire weekend).

Yesterday, we put up the Christmas tree at home.  I despise putting that sucker up.  I hate decorating for Christmas *almost* as much as I hate packing it away after Christmas.  I put on Christmas music to try an lighten the mood a bit, but I limp through the whole ordeal, sucking back wine like water.  I hate it.  For the first time since we had Boy Oneder, Hubster and I did it alone.  The older boys were busy doing homework and Threepeat was busy making bracelets with his Rainbow Loom, so it was just the two of us.  Our pre-lit Christmas tree is no longer pre-lit though...only the bottom section lit up, so Hubster ran out to Canadian Tire to get 300 new lights.  We left the dead ones on the tree and will remove them before we pack it away for the season on Epiphany.

Tyler, the Elf, arrived on Sunday morning too!  Threepeat was SO excited to see him!  The Elf Antics have begun!

My Christmas shopping is almost complete!  YIPPEE!!  I love online shopping, simply because I HATE crowds and malls and heat and and and shopping in general!  The boys are done, except for stocking stuffers.  Hubster is done.  My Mom is done. All I need to get now is MIL, stocking stuffers and gift cards for all my nieces.  Beauty.  I will probably pick up something for each of my awesome colleagues too, but they will be easy...bottles of wine rock!

So, the Christmas season is upon us now.  And I have a heck of a lot of wrapping to do.  GAH! Pin It
