'Tis the Season...

I guess I'm a little overdue for a post. To start with, I am officially done for the semester! I had my last exam tonight (and it was hard) but now it's all over. I thought I'd share some pictures of what's been going on this month. Christmas is my favorite holiday, so I've been having so much fun buying presents (I have them wrapped or put in bags already!), listening to Christmas music, and watching Christmas movies.
What are some of your favorite Christmas films? If you look back in my archives from December 2007, I made a post about some of my favorite Christmas movies. I could probably add a couple new ones to my list, but my top favorites are It's a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, The Bishop's Wife, and the Nativity Story. And Neesie, I'm sorry I fell asleep watching that at your house the other night! After seeing most of In the Good Old Summertime last week, I'd have to say that is becoming another favorite of mine. Well, here are some pictures.

Matt, Rachel, and Melissa at my grandma's house on Thanksgiving. Isn't her tree pretty?

Melissa waiting for us to decide on which Christmas tree we should pick.

Now the fun part...decorating it. Matt and I are always the last ones decorating the tree- we love doing it!

The finished product.

This is our Christmas picture for 2008.

My brother and I went to a fun brunch at Bev's house

My friend, Neesie (and Bev's younger sister), is turning 16 soon, so I went to her party over the weekend. The theme was from It's a Wonderful Life. It was very cute!

Laura came for the party too. Yay for friends!

Happy Birthday Neesie!

Pretty decorating job on the tree! We have an artificial one so I've actually never gone tree-hunting myself. :-P Thanks for the comment on my video. I'll let you in on a little secret - that was filmed last year. ;) We didn't have snow this year either! :(
