This has been the second year in a row that it hasn't felt like Christmas. I've done Christmas-y things, like listen to Christmas music and shop for family members, rehearsed and performed with LDC, been to Temple Square. I even work in a party store where it's ALL Christmas centered all the time. Until today, however, it hasn't felt much like Christmas.
TODAY was Christmas. It was awesome. Ann and I went shopping together for coworker, friend, and family gifts, and it was so super fun. Then we came to my house to put everything together and THAT was super fun. Then we went on an adventure to BYU because mom forgot her glasses, and on our way back we went to the Riverwoods (Smalls [my camera] in tow just in case we decided to take some sort of detour after our trip to the Y).
Magic. Pure magic. It's Christmas.
PS Thanks, Carrots, for helping me make new memories. These are definitely better than the old ones. :)
