It's the most wonderful time.

I am super pumped for Christmas this year. Oh, what am I saying? I love the holiday and always have. The lights, smells, tree, holiday spirit, music; everything is so magical to me.  As a kid I loved the night before Christmas and all of the anticipation and excitement.
Tomorrow morning I board yet another Amtrak and head south to Portland where I will meet up with my sister and brother-in-law who are flying in from New York and my brother will pick us up and drive us all down to Port Orford.  We haven't all been together for about a year and a half now and I am beyond thrilled.  My siblings are, by far, some of very favorite people.  I can't imagine my life without my bro and sis; really, they are the best. It's pretty cool to genuinely like your family.  With all of us home it feels more like a festive party.
Top on my to do list is watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation ( and Love Actually, COOK, make hot drinks, wrap presents, sing Christmas songs horribly off key and go on many more hiking adventures.
