"If you want a thing well done, do it yourself."

Now that we have Thanksgiving behind us, it’s finally time to start thinking about Christmas! :) 

Christmas is my favorite holiday, by far. Something about the weather, the lights, Santa Clause, family gatherings, Christmas trees/decorations, shopping, Christmas movies, Christmas MUSIC! Ah, I could go on forever!! Seriously loooove this holiday! Just wish it would snow here in Florida! 

I thought it would be fun to share what I’m wishing for this year. I certainly don’t expect to get all of these items. And even if I didn’t get any of them, I would be happy. Being a Mom, the focus is more on the kids, but it is fun to make a wish list of things for Santa in case he isn’t sure what to get me this year. ;)
