Merry Christmas Eve!!

Oh wait, I guess that’s to our family. We are celebrating our Christmas Eve tonight, and Christmas tomorrow. We have tons of gifts under our tree, I know I know, they aren’t supposed to be under there until Santa comes, but my 2 year old doesn’t understand that concept this year, she just knows we get presents soon. Plus, I have no where to store them right now!!
We are celebrating this weekend because on Wednesday we are driving the long 10-11 hours to FL to visit my Father-in-law, my mom, my hubby’s BFF (that sounds funny), my BFFs (Katie and Heidie),  my hubby’s Aunt and Uncle, and my hubby’s Grandma. This all will be completed in 4 short days. My hubby didn’t want to take any of his vacation days for Christmas this year because we are planning on going on a cruise to Alaska for our vacation next year!
I am really looking forward to tonight, lots of baked goods, junk food like cheese and crackers, summer sausage and sweet hot mustard, hummus and pretzel crisps…oh I can just taste it.
Unfortunately I am depressed about one thing…I had to tell my husband what I got him for Christmas. I bought him an acoustic guitar that I got an amazing deal on (and with help from Mom so my hubby didn’t see it on the Bank statement). Last weekend we were in Toys R Us finishing up our shopping when my hubby said to me, “Oh I’m going to go next door to see what good deals they have on guitars! Maybe I’ll find one I like.” Yes, there was a guitar store RIGHT next door…I said, “No, you don’t need to go over there, stay here with me.” Which I knew wasn’t going to happen…I had never seen Toys R Us so packed in my life and we were standing in line with at least 8 people in front of us, and it was like that at every register. He then said, “I just want to go over there, I don’t want to stand in here.” So I blurted it out, “That’s what I F’ing got your for Christmas” and I started bawling…right there in the middle of the line at Toys R Us. I could tell he felt bad, and if only he had just listened to me in the first place. Needless to say he is ecstatic to open it up!
Anyways, I am going out in a few after my husband comes home for lunch to grab a few last minute items!! I can’t wait, we are heading out tonight to get some Starbucks and drive around and look at some Christmas lights around the area. I love the beautiful hills and all the fallen leaves, and the Christmasy weather here in MS, it’s nothing like I ever thought it would be.
Merry Christmas to everyone if I’m not back on here before next Saturday!!

Here’s a picture of our jam packed Christmas tree full of gifts, and that’s just for Tim, Delilah, and I!!
