Merry Marvelous in My Monday

by danielle on December 24, 2012

Happy Monday and Merry Christmas Eve to all those who celebrate. Celebrating Marvelous in My Monday thanks to Katie! I’m off working early this morning but wanted to leave with a post filled with link love to enjoy on what is hopefully your day off before Christmas.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here…

My Mom’s beautiful tree! I told her she’s going to have to come decorate for me when I have a house of my own.

Fun gifts from Almond Breeze and Allie! Plus lots of wrapping took place this weekend. I am the worlds worst wrapper by the way. I’m just no good but who looks at the wrapping anyway?! My family can however always tell which presents I wrapped and which ones my sister has!

Even Sophie’s been in the holiday spirit despite a bad hair day ;)

I sill managed to get a regular grocery trip in this week. I’m still going to need food for the week after all.

Merry Christmas to you, Danielle! I’ll be heading off to my parents’ place for dinner tonight, and then we’ll open presents, relax for a bit, and head to midnight mass. We celebrate the 24th more than the 25th, so tomorrow will end up being pretty low key with just a Christmas brunch and dinner :)
