December is the Bestest Month

I love December :) It seems like October and November went so fast they were almost never here, but I'm glad its December now anyway. There's just so much awesomeness in December. Christmas, The Osmond Family Christmas album (I know, I know, I'm such a Mormon), New Years Eve, my birthday. Snow isn't annoying yet. And I love the feeling of getting ready for a whole new year, and how it always feels like its going to be so much better than the one before. Which I really do think this year, because 2011 was rough. I'm expecting big things from 2012, and I don't just mean the Olympics.

I love the Olympics, especially gymnastics and ice-skating. I love midnight bowls of cold cereal. I love sitting in my room writing blog posts with the window open so my room gets really cold and then I shut the window and turn on the heat and snuggle in my blanket with my teddy bear. I love being 22, but I'm excited to be 23. I love snow, especially when I'm inside looking at it from the safety of a warm house. I love the word December. It's a cool word. I love polar bears. I love boots and coats and gloves, but not scarfs. I miss Postum (I know, I know, I'm such a Mormon). I love mountains with snow on them. I hate skiing, but I like ski lodges. I love icicles. I love count-downs, especially to Christmas. I love Clay Aiken and Barbra Streisand and David Archuleta and Josh Groban and Celine Dion doing Christmas on the radio. I like fireplaces and stockings. I like The Grinch with Jim Carey and Scrooge with Albert Finney. I love making Russian teacakes for two days straight with my family. I love being hijacked into my home wards Christmas pageant, even though I really don't. I love this:

What do you love about December?

  1. I love stringing little lights around my little trees and hanging garland and hearing from old friends and baking special dishes and lighting candles without burning down the house.

    fyi...I thought you should know that the ad under your comment button slows everything down and I keep accidently hitting it which is very annoying.

  2. Thanks Yvonne! I love lights too :)

    And I'm sorry about the ads, for some reason they don't show up when I look at it and I thought I'd taken them off a while ago. But I just took them off for sure, so hopefully that helps. Thanks!


  3. Great video! I love this month, too. I look forward to it all year long.

  4. This is such a fun, bright post. :) I'm excited it's December too. My oldest daughter's birthday is this month as well; it's a good month to have a birthday :0)

  5. Yay! This post made me so happy! December is definitely the best month of all. :)

  6. My aunt used to live a few houses down from this house, no joke. I wonder if the neighbors thought it was a little annoying after a million nights of lights flashing and dancing outside their windows. :D
