Show and Tell Tuesday- Favorite Holiday

Today is another Show and Tell Tuesday. Today I am linking up with Andrea over at Momfessionals Blog to share about my favorite holiday! I have been linking up with her almost all year. ;) You can read all my my pasts posts as well.

Except for me I don't wait until after Halloween...it starts Oct. 1st at our house! I LOVE CHRISTMAS!! It's totally my favorite. I love everything about it. The hype, the decorations, the music, and duh the reason for the season. But I do love it so much that when the clock strikes Dec. 26 it's time to pack up until next Oct. 1st. We don't mess around! LOL!!! How fun is something that you can have year round!?!?? Not fun right?!?!?! It kinda loses it's fun! 

We don't decorate until the weekend after Thanksgiving but I do start other fun festive things before that...;) like listening to Christmas music. I have such great memories driving around listening to N'sync Happy Holidays with the windows down but the heat on during high school and college. I know, I know...so cool right!?!?!? 

Another reason I love the Christmas so much is my love for baking! It's something I love more and more...Sloane enjoys it as well so we always bake something fun for holiday parties. 

We also have lots of super fun Christmas Traditions that make Christmas even more exciting! 

One of my VERY favorite parts of the Christmas season is sending and receiving Christmas cards. It makes me sad to think about this year that we probably won't get very many since we are still at Mark's parent's until our house is finished being built. ;( #addresschangeistheworst I enjoyed writing a family letter to add to our cards. It makes them a little more personal. 

And another "makes me sad" will be that we don't have a home to decorate this year. It's not really how the building process/moving was supposed to go but "all things work together for good," and we are clinging to that and counting ALL our blessings. Last year I posted a Christmas Home Tour and I am so glad I did...#memoriesinourfirsthome.

There are so many reasons to love Christmas and as I post I am reminded it's not about the things. It's about the birth of Jesus. I pray as this season will look a little different for us as a family our children will still know and see the true meaning of Christmas...my favorite holiday.
