Christmas in July

CIJ was a great success :) haha. Allie and Hannah came over and we watched Home Alone and Elf!! We had a little Christmas tree with presents, made christmas cookies, listened to Christmas music, talked about our favorite Christmas traditions, etc. It was a blast.

I was reminded (probably for the hundredth time) that "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" is my favorite Christmas song.

All the smells and the sounds around the house made it really feel like Christmas. Weird. I'm excited for Christmastime in Chicago...with snow and lights and carols!!

This morning was a lazy morning...hard to wake up. We all sat around and read in the living room for awhile, drinking tea. The girls have left now and I am about to get started in on my class again. I MUST take a test this week!!

Enjoy a bunch of pictures. We laughed SO HARD over the ones that look like i'm giving birth to the tree. we quickly remedied it but had to keep a few for good measure. i love these girls!!
