Christmas!

Heyyy, girlz!
So, what's happening in 24 days? Uh, how about CHRISTMAS?!

Ooh, I just realized something. You Americans have to wait a whole other day until Christmas :P ..Wow, that certainly proves Santa wrong, doesn't it? Because otherwise, people would get their presents delivered to them  on the wrong day! :P


We put up our Christmas tree on Sunday.. yes, a couple of days early, but who cares? We had a theme this year -- Silver and Purple, instead of the usual "throw all the decorations onto the tree," and no tinsel stuff, to which I was very disappointed. But, apparently -- this is what makes the trees not look as good. Well, as I pointed out -- when I'm older (LOL!) I AM going to have purple and silver tinsel on my tree.. haha, I was watching "Sunrise", this morning show in Australia -- and their two Christmas trees were the same as our tree :P


Chocolate Advent calender -- Mmm, yummy, I looove chocolate! I opened 24 today... oh, and you know how advent calendars work, right? Everyday, starting December 1st -- you open one, starting from 24 down to 1. :)



And one more thing -- this video, Christmas Must be Something More, by Taylor Swift. I also first heard this song at Anna's blog -- and I just love it. I hope you do, too!:)

And, just like last time -- I've posted the lyrics, which you can see if you click "Read the Lyrics!" right under this...:)

Luv,Emii
What if ribbons and bows didn't mean a thing


Would the song still survive without five golden rings
Would you still wanna kiss without misletoe
What would happen if God never let it snow
What would happen if Christmas carols told a lie
Tell me what would you find

You'd see that today holds something special

Something holy, not superficial
So here's to the birthday boy who saved our lives
It's something we all try to ignore
And put a wreath up on your door
So here's something you should know that is for sure
Christmas must be something more

What if angels did not pay attention to

All the things that we wished they would always do
What if happiness came in a cardboard box
Then I think there is something we all forgot
What would happen if presents all went away
Tell me what would you find

You'd see that today holds something special


Something holy, not superficial
So here's to the birthday boy who saved our lives
It's something we all try to ignore
And put a wreath up on your door
So here's something you should know that is for sure
Christmas must be something more

We get so caught up in all of it

Business and relationships
Hundred mile an hour lives
And it's this time of year
And everybody's here
It seems the last thing on your mind

Is that the day holds something special

Something holy, not superficial
So here's to Jesus Christ who saved our lives
It's something we all try to ignore
And put a wreath up on your door
But here's something you should know that is for sure

Christmas must be something

Christmas must be something
Christmas must be something more

There's gotta be more
There's gotta be more

  1. Cool post, Emii! Wow! I LOVE your Christmas tree. It's so pretty! That advent calendar thing is really cool too. I mean, who doesn't want to have a delicious piece of chocolate every day until Christmas? Have a great week!
    Love in Christ,

  2. LOL, I usually start at 1 and end with 24! You guys must have an artificial Christmas tree. We live on the country side so we chop them fresh off of my grandpa's farm. We have to wait a while to put it up or else it will die. :)

    Love, Abbie =D
