"Tell us about your favorite season. Why is it your favorite and what does it say about you?"
I'm probably going to have my blogger status revoked for this, but I really don't like fall. I like the wardrobe - light sweaters, jeans, boots - but that's about it. Between all of the allergies and my husband having less time off, fall is always a bit of a bummer for me.
But winter... ah, winter is where it's at! It's good for my cozy, homebody heart... warm blankets, a fire going, hot cocoa, the falling snow that sort of muffles everything. I love Christmas break and snow days, when we can stay together and watch the snow settle perfectly on the trees in our backyard from our nice warm home... and I love Christmas. Everything about the Christmas season delights me... I love planning, shopping for, and wrapping gifts for our family and friends... I love baking, decorating, and eating Christmas goodies... I love gathering with our families and groups of friends, and the fun traditions that go along with those gatherings... I love the Advent church services and Christmas pageants, singing my favorite carols, celebrating God's greatest gift... and I can't wait to experience all of these things with and through the eyes of our babies!!
