Christmas spirit

Christmas time is my favorite time of year.  I love the music, the decorations, the hustle, the bustle, the buying of the gifts, the making of the gifts, the wrapping of the gifts, the giving of the gifts, the TV specials (with the exception of the Star Wars Holiday special), the seasonal coffee, the cookies, the cold weather, the clothes I get to wear in the cold weather, Disneyland, the time off, the travel and most of all spending time with family and friends.  It's a Wonderful Life!

Here are a few photos of the Christmas spirit around my apartment.

My sister Stephanie and her lovely girlfriend Cari got "hitched" November 25, 2009 by signing Domestic Partnership paperwork. Until the ban on gay marriage gets lifted this is the closest they can get to getting married. They chose my husband Trevor to notarize their paperwork. He was honored, they exchanged rings, I took pictures and we celebrated. Yay! They plan on having a ceremony next year in order to profess their love in front of friends and family.
