i swear the span of time between thanksgiving and december 1st gets shorter every year.
it's like that short week goes into warp speed..
and then from there life is in fast forward until january 1st when everything slows down again.
can you relate?
i didn't finish my advent calender... heck i couldn't even decide on one (still can't.)
i dragged my feet on whether or not to purchase an 'elf on the shelf'...
but nana picked up my slack, because without my knowing it, she picked one up herself!
(nana's are the best! :)
so i'll at least have some elf pictures for you..
i sorta kinda debated on doing a december daily.
truth. i've started two in the last 5 years, and haven't finished a single one.
it's just too overwhelming for me, with all the holiday festivities.
so i'm not guilting myself over it, i'll just enjoy everyone else's! :)
it'll just free me up for some more christmas crafts & baking!
i get just as excited about christmas movies as i do halloween movies.
because there are some GREAT christmas movies.
but i own not a single one on dvd, nor vhs (yep. still have one of those)
1. abc family hosts almost all of our favorites on their 25 days of christmas.
2. we own a dvr.
3. i'm cheap.
so i've searched & set our dvr to record over the next two weeks..
and since it took a little time to gather our favorites..
i figured i'd share the list with you.
i DID NOT however, link each movie like i did at halloween.
it took forever to do that, and i got a tree to decorate here people! :)
