Christmas-ing

I can't believe the holidays are almost here. It took us a little while to get into the holiday spirit, but we're finally there.. I mean, it's official. No, the lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree doesn't make it official, nor does the holiday shopping.

In our house, we know it's Christmastime when Folgers brings back their holiday commercial. For those of you not familiar with this gem:

 Can we talk for a second about how creepy this commercial is? Is it just us or is there a weird brother/sister dynamic in play here?

Well, either way... Our house is all decked out (kind of) for Christmas.
Can't believe we'll have 3 stockings next year!!
Wrapping gifts is my favorite!
And our friends sure have been on top of it this year getting their holiday cards out. Sadly enough, we opted to not send Christmas cards this year with everything going on and because we'll be doing birth announcements this spring.
You'll notice I haven't gone on my usual rant against holiday yard inflatables this year. This video should explain why:

For reference, our house is the first one with the porch lights on. We are one of the only houses on our street that did not put up any outdoor Christmas lights, so who am I to start knocking on those who at least did SOMETHING outdoors (inflatables or not)? The hubby promised me that we could do lights next year. I'm documenting this right now.

Anyways, we'll be spending a few days in Houston visiting family for the holidays and then will be in nursery overdrive until we head back to work in January.

Hope everyone has a lovely Christmas surrounded by those you love most!! xoxo
