    2. ARGHHH! I knew blog people were my people because we all go nuts over Christmas!
      So many of these are true for me - but also so many aren't because we have a hot Australian Summer Christmas! I think I need create an Aussie version about 12 Aussie Things We Do Leading Up Christmas (I will be sure to link back to here!)
      Happy Nearly December!!
