Derek and I holding the ornament he got me for our second Christmas together back in 2010!
The pine needles were so sharp my brother opted for gloves.
I even had bangs in the second grade.
Aren't my parents the cutest?
My little sister and her boyfriend. my brother, me and Derek.
Less than a week until Christmas! I cannot tell you how excited I am, but I'm sure a lot of you feel the same way. This time of year makes me so happy, I'm actually sad to think about it ending. This Friday I'm having some friends over for a cookie baking/decorating party and then Saturday Derek's coming over and we're going to build a gingerbread house and watch Love Actually. Last Friday my parents, siblings, my sisters boyfriend, Derek and I decorated the Christmas tree! It's so little compared to the ones we usually get but it's cute and really round. We used to have an artificial one but then I started to beg for a real one a few years ago and after my parents gave in once we've opted for a real one since then! (Even though it turns out my poor mother is allergic to them, haha, luckily only mildly.)
