  1. Living in Texas I never thought I'd have a white Christmas. But last year we got just that! It snowed so much here that we were all snowed in on Christmas eve and couldn't make it to our families for Christmas. It really was so beautiful! I can't imagine how much more fun Christmas will be when we have little ones :) Seeing the happiness and excitement on all your girl's faces must be an incredible feeling! :) Happy Christmas Polly! Hope you get my ornaments soon :)

  2. Fairytale of New York is one of my favorite holiday songs too! This list is fantastic- it really put me in the holiday spirit. :)
