Merry SITSmas!



Can you believe Christmas is in less than three weeks?!  I know I can't--I have so much to do around here--it's not even funny!  I'm really hoping that Santa has his act together better than I do this year, that's for sure!

I wanted to leave y'all a few of my favorite things for this Christmas.  So sit down somewhere comfy, cuddle up with a warm blanket {or you could totally rock your Snuggie or Slanket!) and a hot cup of coffee--and mostly I hope you enjoy my happiness that makes me merry:

1.  Hearing Isabella tell me she loves "Kissmas" and the "Kissmas lights are bee-you-tee-ful, Mommy!".

2.  Seeing Miss Madelyn staring at the Christmas tree and loving the lights.  She's totally infatuated with them--hard to believe I was pregnant with her this time last year!

3.  Speaking of which, SO happy I don't have the extreme morning sickness that I had last year.  Which means holiday cookies, treats and I can enjoy my wine this year--yay!

4.  Isabella's "wishlist" consists of a Dora bike.  Must let Santa know of this asap.  Because last I knew it was a wagon...now it's changed to the Dora bike. 

5.  And what's Christmas without my beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte in my red cup from Starbucks?

6.  The playing of Christmas music and movies everywhere I go....falalalala!

7.  Comfy sweaters to hide that leftover baby belly. 

8.  Christmas themed everything--from disposable coffee cups, tissue boxes, paper towels, candles...it's heaven to me.

9.  The cheeriness of everyone I meet--seriously, there seems to be so much kindness and caring this time of year.  I wish more people were this cheery throughout the rest of the year, that's for sure!

I'll sign off with a picture of one of my favorite Christmas movies EVER!  Merry SITSmas to all of my SITStas from SITS and to all of my readers, too!

Kristi said...

I can totally pictureMadelyn staring at the tree :) So cute! And B needs to make sure that when she changes her mind she should make sure Santa (orat least his elves!) know with plenty of time before SITsmas!

Oh- I didn't think they made Pumpkin Spice Lattes this season?? Ours all did a big promoional thing during its last week for the year. I think they just have their SITSmas drinks now. FYI - their new Caramel Brulee drink is AWESOME!!!!

Merry SITSmas! You children look so much alike! So adorable. I love their names too. I almost named my daughter Isabella, but when I saw her for the first time, I just knew that she was a Molly. (BTW, today is her birthday!)

Cute girls! I was just thinking of Christmas Vacation today because my father needed help signing my grandmother up for the pie of the month club, and I couldn't help saying, "It's the gift that keeps on giving!"

Thanks for stopping by!

Awww, "Kissmas" is awful cute. My munchkin calls it "Mist-mas" because he has a really hard time with C's. It's pretty darn cute, too. Merry SITSmas!

Dame Nuisance said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Let me know how the Glühwein comes out. I'm an intuitive cook, so it's hard for me to come up with specific quantities whenever I share a recipe. Love the pics of your children. And "Kissmas" is priceless!

Sam said...

Lovely things. Thanks for sharing that. Great blog. Have a happy holiday. Looks like you have a lot to celebrate. I've really enjoyed my snoop here today. Loved the stretch mark post, for sure you've inspired many others to "own up" too. Good work, Keri

Merry SITSmas :)

Clare said...

love all of your christmas things:) but those pictures are priceless!!

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

Your list of favorite Christmas things is great! That picture is hilarious! I bought this classic movie the day after Thanksgiving and Josh thought it looked so stupid...I was shocked that he had NEVER seen this movie before! We watched it together and he loved it...he was laughing so hard!

I was afraid that Carter would change what he was asking Santa for this year so we wrote a letter to Santa early so "he" would have enough time to make it for him. We wouldn't want him to miss any of the good sales and free shipping offers would we?

Llama said...

I love the list. Your two little sweeties are adorable. I hope Santa is able to bring Isablella that Dora bike! :)

Andi said...

Awesome post! I vote for Starbucks holiday flavors all year round! Sorry I am late, but I am making my way through the entire SITSmas list, I want to visit everyone to wish everyone happy holidays! So Merry SITSmas!

Loukia said...

That's one of my all time favourite Christmas movies, too!
