1) I love everything about Christmas! I love shopping for gifts for other people, I love planning family outings to see Christmas lights, I love getting our families together at our house, I love wrapping, and baking, and decorating. I love it all.
2) Whew! I am exhausted and not nearly done yet.
3) I miss having a workplace Christmas party, and workplace slacking off and sharing goodies and Secret Santa gift exchanges.
4) I love having the ability to take 2 weeks off with my kids, or at least schedule meetings and work around swimming and skating and sledding and gingerbread train building.
5) Excuse me, I have some wrapping, swimming, cleaning and train building to do.
