It's beginning too look a lot like Christmas! Finally!

I finally feel like it's Christmas time!!  Don't get me wrong, I am loving the 60's/70's degrees weather of Vegas right now, but somehow the absence of scarves and mittens and frost and cute lighted houses and the presence of palm trees and rocks and unrelenting sun and bare houses just were making it kind of hard for me to really get into the Christmas spirit.  However, my darling husband surprised me the other night by taking me and my darling daughter to a chocolate factory slash cactus garden (only in Vegas, love it) that was covered in Christmas lights!   We bought hot chocolate and walked around enjoying the bedecked cacti- it was lovely.   I came straight home and put up my stockings and put out our little Charlie Brown tree and started listening to Christmas music.  It really is the most wonderful time of the year and I'm so glad it's finally here for me!!!
