I've started on my ornaments already, as I will be making a few more than usual this year. Here is a pic of a couple of them.
I have also begun to stock my pantry for my baking plans. That is something I start generally in the summer and continue until after Christmas.
The bustle of the stores, the lights at the Mission Inn, the smell of fresh baked cookies, decorating the house, watching holiday movies and doing crafts...these are just a few of my favorite (Christmastime) things!
