I mean really. Like.... I remember having snow from September to June! And now? Now it's December 6th and we haven't had to shovel once.
(I'm not complaining about not shoveling. I hate shoveling. But no snow in December makes me sad.)
I want one of those giant snow storms that makes schools close and gives people five foot berms, and keeps you inside with coffee and fires and Christmas movies.
I DO NOT WANT ANOTHER GREEN CHRISTMAS, OKAY!?
What's up, mein minions?
It's been over a week since I posted.
Freaking lack of WiFi.
We put up our Christmas tree!
No, it's not decorated yet. We tend to wait a little bit between setting it up and decorating, because..... I don't even know why. It's a lot of work to set up and decorate the tree, I guess.
|What? No! I don't just put frost and stuff on my pictures to make them look good. Shhhhh.|
The little girls were really excited and it was adorable.
I don't like getting my picture taken so I eyeballed Bella like a bird while she photographed me.
Bella, on the other hand, is a freaking diva.
And I can smile when I think about it.
Like... it's not even three weeks away anymore. And I'm so freaking happy. I have fabulous pressies for people, and I'm more excited to give them to people than to open my own.
(I might not get any, I haven't exactly been saintly. I have anger management issues. I'm lazy. And I don't like to be nice to people.... FATHER CHRISTMAS IS GONNA LEAVE COAL IN MY STOCKING AND THAT IS SAD.)
Whatever. Ask anyone. I buy fabulous pressies.
It's my best friend's birthday today.
I hate that she's eighteen.
I hate being an adult.
BUT SHE'S EIGHTEEN.
My little sisters did an ice skating performance tonight. It's their first. AND THEY LOOK SO CUTE IN THEIR LITTLE OUTFITS. Unnnng. Like. Pink and sparkly and shyyyy. And it's so cute.
I haven't felt like drawing lately. I've been busy... ish. Busy enough.
However, because of the recent viewing of ice skating I've been doing. I have ideas for new drawings. (Also a short story Hannah let me read was like... MIND BLOWN I NEED TO ILLUSTRATE.)
And lately I've been like, "CHRISTMAS CAAAAARDS. I NEED TO DRAW CHRISTMAS CARDS FOR EVERYONE." And then, because I'm me, I get overwhelmed, and then I procrastinate because I'm a moron. *high fives everyone who is a fellow procrastinator.*
I did, however, draw this. With lyrics to one of my favorite Christmas songs... like ever.
I played chess for the first time in like a year and a half.
And then I won.
And then I lost again and threw a fit, because I'm a brat.
I like going to Staples. But I'm not telling you why.
I want to watch While You Were Sleeping again. It's like the cutest movie. (I've only seen it edited, though, so I'm not sure if it's dirty or not.) But seriously. It's freaking adorable. Watch it. NOW!
I also want to watch Silent Night. Because Silent Night is about Christmas and soldiers during WWII and I love the WWII time frame.
And One Magic Christmas which starts out happyish. And then gets really sad and then gets really happy and I love having my emotions toyed with by a movie made like thirty years ago. It's so worth it though.
Also, the Grinch cartoon, because.... nostalgic memories, OKAY.
My leg is asleep.
Freaking pins and needles.
I am excited to wrap presents and put them under the tree and guffaw at people trying to figure out what they are.
Have I mentioned I buy fabulous presents?
We listened to Josh Groban's "Believe" from Polar Express. Seriously one of the best Christmas songs ever.
I love Christmas songs.
I love this season.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, MEIN MINIONS.
Hopefully I'll be back before another week goes by.
Freaking lack of WiFi.
I need to draw and send out packages.
I love you all.
