Thursday-Things I am Looking Forward To!

Wow, it has almost been a week since my last post, and Christmas is nearly here!  That is hard to believe.  My little sister is home and I have to say it now is starting to feel more like the holiday season with my entire family home!  

Before I share a few things I am looking forward to in the coming weeks I wanted to say a big Thank You to you all! Thank you for the sweet sweet comments and birthday wishes for my dad!  I think he truly had a wonderful day.  The three of us had a fun afternoon of shopping and celebrating!  Not to mention we had an absolutely fabulous meal!

With a season filled with family, cheer, giving and wonderful friends it is hard not to have many many things to look forward to!  Here is just a quick list of things I am most looking forward to in the coming weeks!

Of course I have to start with...
 I am most looking forward to all the traditions, Christmas Eve Service (one of my favorite) and time spent with family and wonderful friends! This really is the most wonderful time of the year!
Keeping with the Christmas theme...
I am looking forward to hopefully a little holiday baking tomorrow after work with my mom and sister!  Since I was sick the whole first half of the week it sorta turned my week upside down!

Christmas Presents, I am really looking forward to giving my gifts to my family!
But first I have to wrap them (not my strongest talent)!
I wish my wrapping could look something like this!

And last but certainly not least

I am looking forward to, and over joyed that in about a week I will get to see this guy
yes I am really really looking forward to his visit!! Just in time for the New Year!
Can you believe I have not seen Mark since October?  That is far to long!  To say I am really really looking forward to his visit is a bit of an understatement, I am ecstatic!

Well my lovely bloggers, what are you looking forward to as Christmas and New Years quickly approach?
