Christmas is in the air...

I addressed and stuffed our Christmas cards today.  I feel so grown-up!  It's like sending out Christmas cards is the ultimate symbol of being an adult.  It was alot harder than I was expecting to pick out the photo and design for our cards.  Shutterfly has so many great options.  I am happy with my decision. We went with a wedding picture since Wes and I didn't have a chance to take a "Christmasy" picture. 

So today, I sat at my work table (TV tray) and got to stuffing. 

That's one more thing I am glad to have crossed off my to-do list.  I didn't put them in the mail yet, though.  When do y'all usually send your's out?  I have already gotten a couple in the mail, but I don't want to be too early.  

I also have bought presents for most of the people on our list.  And saved tons thanks to Ebates and cash back at some stores through my bank.
I always have such a hard time buying for my dad.  He doesn't really have any hobbies so to say other than Ole Miss sports and he already owns everything he wants.  I am having a hard time buying for Wes's parents also.  And he is  no help!  

Does anyone else love riding around looking at Christmas lights like I do?  It is quite possibly one of my favorite things to do this time of year.  
The town next to where my mom lives has one family who have turned their house into a Winter Wonderland!  WOW!!!  This is over-the-top!  
St. Bernards and Palm Trees...why not??
I wonder what their neighbors think!

They even have a holographic Santa that appears in the window!
The had to build a storage building on the lot next door to store all this stuff.                    

Please tell me this is not just a Mississippi/Alabama thing...Do people all over go all out like this? 
Guess they have to make up for those of us simpletons with only a tree and some garland!
