Christmas in July ♥

Well, our first annual Christmas in July was a hit!  

John woke up this morning to some familiar faces...

 And a few small presents.

 I lit my Christmas cookie candle, put some music on and was Christmas!

What better reason to have cinnamon rolls for breakfast!

I must note that this was probably one of the hottest days of the summer.  It's well into the 90's out there.  But not in here.... : )

After breakfast we put our favorite Christmas movies on and made cookies.

Decorating is the best part!

Honestly, this didn't take much effort to put together, and we had the best time.  What a kick he got out of Christmas cookies in July!

He begged me to make it a tradition!

Done ♥

We are spending the rest of day sipping frozen hot chocolates, staying cool, and watching movies.

I couldn't have asked for a better Christmas in July!

Now I have to admit, as much as I love the summer I am yearning for fall and holiday times.  I was very temped to bring out my pumpkin spice candles but I didn't.

I'll give it a few more weeks! ♥♥♥
