I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with my family and there was a whole lot of laughing, gift-giving and merriment. I have to admit, while I LOVE to give great gifts, the kid in me still also really loves to get gifts. There. I said it. It just really means a lot to me to know that someone who love knows me knows me so well that they think of just the perfect gift (with the exception of the orange sweater from my mom - really Mom... orange?) Anyway, my twin sister, Danni, is an avid, talented knitter. Every Christmas brings beautifully handmade mittens, socks, etc. that she spends a lot of time crafting. While I always appreciate the time and love that go into anything she makes, this year she really hit a home run! How cute is this scarf she made me? I already have visions of me on the playground doing recess duty in my new cozy scarf. It almost makes thinking about going back to school a little less painful to know I'll be all decked out. Almost. Thanks, Dan!

To be honest, the scarf was actually the 2nd cutest thing under my tree. First place goes to my sweet Sally. She likes to curl up near the heat register under the tree and nap amongst the presents. (And drink the water from the tree stand!) She was and will always be the cutest thing under my tree...
