Christmasy Feelin' Again

It is that time of year that we remember our Savior's birth. A very special time of year. I was hoping to post every week of December, but I don't think I will be able to. So busy this month!
This week is my cousin's Bridal Shower, so I will be baking for that and then of course there will be the actual shower. I am excited and nervous about it since I have never put together a Bridal shower or have had any experience doing anything "big". I so hope that it turns out all right for Kaysha's sake.
I have been baking a lot more than I used to and I LOVE being able to. Thanks to my sister Elisa and her hubby Leon for starting Family Night, I now have a reason to bake goodies... I have always loved baking, but never do much since we can't eat it all. There are so many things I want to try!
This Christmas Eve will be our "family" Christmas and I will be working. I have never missed one before and my boss said I can get off for sure by 3PM, but I am hoping for noon if possible. I didn't end up working at all last Christmas so I am hoping that this year will end up the same. Christmas Day we will be having our small Christmas when we will open our stockings and have Prime Rib...mmm!
The day after Christmas we will be heading to our Ranch till Tuesday, I got two days off and I can't wait to be there in the winter! I haven't been there in the winter since 2008...I think??? I hope there is snow! 
I don't know what will be happening all in between... My niece Daminika is having a Christmas Party that I am sure she will be writing about after. We are hoping to go caroling this year like we did last year, but I don't know if we will end up doing it... I wanted to do a picture post of the last year sometime before January, but I don't know when I will be able to do that. My laptop doesn't let me upload pictures so I would have to get all the pictures on to my Dad's computer and do it on there.
Today we are having a nice rainy day. Flooding everywhere! Driving to work wasn't too bad, but on the way home whole fields were now lakes and part of the road was covered. I was nervous about driving through a "river" of water but the cars in front of me did fine so...
Tonight we are having homemade pizza for supper, which I need to go start...
Hope you enjoyed my little "note".
God's Peace,
Marita <3
