Christmas Time!

This is at the Ewell Christmas party. We were so lucky to have Santa come (the little kids were excited as well). I love the Christmas season. Here are a few of my favorite things about Christmas...

  • My Nativity Set: I love the sweet reminder in gives us about Christmas' meaning.
  • Family: I love being around our loved ones on holidays, I just wish we could be with all of them (too bad Utah, Texas, and California aren't closer).
  • Christmas Mints: My mom has made mints since I can remember and I have made my own for gifts the past 5 years. Today between me, my mom, my sister Brittany, and my mom's friend Kim we made 14 batches which is 70 boxes and we are only half way done! Also, I get to teach my friend Bobbi on Wednesday which will be lots of fun!
  • Christmas Lights: When else do you get an good excuse to put shiny, sparkly things around your house.
  • Giving: giving gifts is one of my favorite things to do but it can also be considered a weakness because sometimes I spend a bit too much.

Oh yeah, your Christmas mints are the BEST! You have a gift for cooking! We'll miss seeing you guys this Christmas, but hopefully we'll get to see you soon. I think you & Phil got a GREAT Christmas present this year - how can anyone top a new home for Christmas?! :)
