WHAT?! Christmas is here already?

At this point in the Christmas season do you ever find yourself thinking... WHAT!!? It's Christmas already?! I know I do. I thought I had PLENTY of time to finish my shopping, wrapping, card sending, Christmas baking, neighbor gift giving (SERIOUSLY slacked on that this year), Christmas reading, Christmas Music Listening, etc... Where has the time gone to?!! I find myself making lists of things I need to buy, gifts I need to wrap, places I need to be, and ALL while working full time and trying to spend time with family from out of town!! I really shouldn't have procrastinated, but I honestly thought we still had weeks to go! Next year, I'll be better... I PROMISE! However, I am enjoying the season and I tend to enjoy the hustle and bustle which probably makes me subconsciously procrastinate even more! Here are a few pictures from our shopping trip on Saturday. We went to the outlets at Park City and two different malls. It wasn't nearly as busy as I thought it would be - I guess I was the only one who procrastinated this year!!

Mom and I with our loot... we are SERIOUS shoppers -
check out the runners - no messing around here! :)

And a cheesy one - of course.

We didn't send out Christmas cards, so don't feel badly if you didn't receive one. But we do love you all and hope that you have a VERY Merry Christmas. We hope that you find time to relax amidst the hustle and bustle. We hope that you find yourselves spending LOTS of time with family, eating too much delicious food, listening to Christmas music constantly, sleeping by the Christmas tree, watching cheesy Christmas movies (our favorites are Jingle all the Way, the Santa Clause, Home Alone, and Miracle on 34th Street), and MOST of all we hope that we can all take some time to remember the true meaning of Christmas. As we give gifts to and spend time with those we love may we remember our Savior who makes it possible for all of us to be with those we love forever. I can think of no greater gift during this season. Merry Christmas!!

Your new hairdo looks great! I love the darker color and the bangs! I also love some of the things you want for Christmas - you always know how to dress cute! I also love the photos of you and your mom shopping!

This happened to me this year, too. :-( Since finals didn't finish up until last Friday - suddenly Christmas is HERE!!!

We have a Christmas card for you guys. But I procrastinated to the point where it never even got in the mail to you. :-(
