Santa Clause is Comin' to Town

Today was my first day of no school! Yay! Except, I do have 2 exams to study for, so I did spend a little bit of time studying today. But I slept in....boy that felt nice! Then I watched Rachel Ray, which I never get to do because I'm at school. I studied somewhere along the way. I made some more White Chocolate Chex Mix, and some chocolate filled crescent rolls. Really good....all you do is buy regular (not butter) Pillsbury crescent rolls, put some milk chocolate chips on the wide end (you can use as many as you want), roll it up like normal, but seal the ends, and then bake as directed. Sprinkle with powdered sugar while they're still warm and you've got yourself a yummy breakfast or snack! Anyway, I had to go out and buy wrapping paper so I could finish wrapping presents. I planned on doing it by myself, but when my mom got home from work, she wanted me to wrap gifts with her, so I did. I had already done hers, but I had to do Nate's, Dad's, some for friends, and the gift for our exchange in Canada. Thanks for all the suggestions you gave me...I ended up buying a handheld Deal or No Deal. It looks like fun, and it's something I wouldn't mind getting myself! :) Plus, it's worth more than $10, and I got it for less than $10 (shhh! don't tell!) It took us a while to wrap the gifts, I actually don't mind wrapping them! I took some pictures of our tree with presents under it. This isn't even everything, because mom couldn't wrap my presents with me around!!!

In the dark, the lights really stand out

It does look pretty in the light too, you can see the ornaments better

This is the house ornament that I mentioned above as my favorite


  1. Was n't it great to have a doy off? You'll enjoy school vacation. You still got lots done though! I enjoyed seeing the decorations.

  2. Wow! It all looks beautiful! It is nice to have a day off and accommplish things isn't it?!

  3. I was looking at your blog through Bloglines when I saw your Christmas tree. I immediately went to your site so I could see it up close and personal because it looked so pretty. THEN I SAW IT! ! ! You have a lighted dear beside your tree ! ! ! ! I wanted my lighted dear inside the house this year so I could enjoy it. My H thought that was a little crazy so now I am going to bring him to your site and show him that I am not CRAZY! Melissa and her mother brought their dear in so it is not a crazy idea! We will be the leaders of a new decorating idea for Christmas. Thanks SO MUCH for posting this picture. I knew we had a lot of things in common. :)I love, love, love your dear beside the Christmas tree! How did you come to think about putting him there? Is there a story?

  4. I missed seeing you Sunday and hope you have a very blessed Christmas!!!

  5. I don't remember if I commented you back yesterday, so thanks if I didn't. Yes, that was the beanie from the craft sale!! I got the sweatshirt today!!! I am actually wearing it right now... hehe. I am very lucky to have a friend like Anna... most of the time... just kidding. ALL of the time. She cracks me up too. What a silly goose. hehe...

  6. The decorations look great. It is nice to sleep in once in awhile.
    I like to wrap presents too- they look so pretty when you're all done.
