10 Things I Love About December ~ on the 10th

1 - Sugar cookies {December really is the only time I ever eat a sugar cookie!}

2 - Tall skinny peppermint mocha thankyouverymuch

3 - Christmas photography

4 - My holiday purse {Let me see... What was the word Carrie used... oh yeah. Hideous.}

5 - Christmas attire {Yes, these are Santa Turtle socks. Note Whiskers in the background. :o)}

6 - This pin. Forever known as "The Toilet Pin" because 5-year-old Carrie dropped it in the bowl. {For the record, the water was clean and it was my favorite pin so I rescued it.}

7 - Lights!


8 - Pretzel treats {last year's photo}

9 - Wrapping presents. {It's paper, tape and scissors. What's not to love?}

10 - Christmas morning chocolate pancakes

Just ten of the many reasons to love December.
Did I miss any that are favorites of yours?

A lovely December '10',Deb....except for no. 9......I'm afraid,in my case, there's lots not to love.....I hate wrapping presents!!
It's beginning to feel a lot like christmas.

Miriam said...

A really lovely look at your December. I love your photographs Deb and the Toilet pin reminds me of my dog skirt! just because I bought it at a stall raising funds for the kennels!

Helen Overton said...

Those bokeh photos are really pretty.

Amy said...

Your sock photo is spectacular - I LOVE it!

Now, as for that bag/purse .... how often do you use it and where do you use it? In the supermarket? Really? I'd being heading out to a sophisticated bar or cafe with my urbane daughter and I'd whip it out .... just to test the waters!

jo said...

Your photos are stunning - thank you for sharing.

A great 10 things for December. Those pancakes look yummy and the bokeh shots are fabulous.

jennifer said...

Great Christmas faves. Especially the socks! x

Karen said...

Fabulous photos! I LOVE the bells and the bokeh! The socks are great too! I used to wear a lot of Christmas attire when I taught, but I don't often wear it now.

Beverly said...

Seriously? Carrie hates on the purse! I think it is too cute and the only reason I think those socks are cute is because they are yours lol Have you done Rolos on the pretzels...divine!

An excellent list. I shall think of those pancakes when I am up to my eyes in turkey and chopping vegetables on Christmas morning. I have 14 coming for lunch so I don't think breakfast is really going to happen for me!
Love the socks!

Donna said...

Wow they are some wonderful pictures...Love them x

Miss Smith said...

furrypig said...

gorgeous photos Deb especially the Bell one I totally love it! Not sure that I love your Christmas bag quite as much though lol xxx

Carrie Rosalind said...

OMG DUDE I LOOOOVE THIS POST! Every picture is totally perfect - love the bokeh look of some of them. The Toilet Pin cracked me up and I almost freaked out when I saw the chocolate pancakes picture because I thought you had already had them this year without me...

Carrie Rosalind said...

...and I still think that purse is hideous!

humel said...

LOVE the Santa Turtles!! And I had to laugh about your poor Christmas tree/cat story (sorry...)

Maria Ontiveros said...

Totally great post today!
The socks!!! The toilet bowl pin!!! The absolutely hideous purse!
And, oh my gosh, those chocolate pancakes look amazing. Is there a recipe?

Cheri said...

Wonderful post Deb - totally loving all your photos! I'm not a big fan of gift wrapping though. Maybe if there weren't so many!

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...

This is great! love the turtle sugar cookies and oh my the socks are too cute! Did I mention how much I loved your sweet card? Love you, my friend. (Whole lotta love here!)

Margaret said...

So sad that that cute little pin has such a nasty name. As for the chocolate pancakes, I think they would kill me. But they look divine.
