It's something my mother did for my family when I was small, and it's something I wanted to do for my children.
It all started 8 years ago when I had Brendan. It took 8 years - but tonight, it's official - we are DONE and everyone now has homemade stockings!!!!

Enjoyed another annual family Christmas tradition tonight, Epcot's Candlelight Processional.
It is one of my favorite things of the year. This year we saw an old favorite, Neil Patrick Harris.
We've seen him below - check out the video below.
So while he's our favorite, I've started thinking about my wish list of celebrity narrators for the show..
Here are my thoughts, I would love to hear yours...
1) Keep NPH of course!
2) Rob Lowe - I think he would literally be amazing.
4) Tina Fey
5) George Clooney
6) Patrick Dempsey
7) Julianna Margulies
8) Selena Gomez
9) Bette Midler
10) Allison Janney
11) Lady Gaga

Disney's Boardwalk Resort is one of my Disney favorites anytime of year.
But I especially love their holiday decorations.
Take a look at this beauty inside the main lobby.
This display contains:
- 50 pounds of icing
- 401 sugar and gumpaste flowers
- 301 pounds of chocolate
- 2011 gingerbread pieces
It also has 15 hidden Mickey's!

We have three full size Christmas trees in our home. Each has a theme.
One is the family tree, decorated with the most important ornaments.
The next is the beach themed tree.
The last, and really my favorite, is the Mickey tree.
It's a pretty simple rule: MICKEY ONLY!
It's an amazing thing that I have enough ornaments to fill a whole Christmas tree with just Mickey ornaments. But yes, it's true.
And there are Mickey lights, a dancing Mickey out front, Mickey garland and a Mickey Christmas tree topper.
My favorite piece, however, is Monorail World!
In full disclosure - we have a few more mini-trees in the house as well..but that's for another time :)
Do you go Christmas crazy? Any cool themed Christmas trees?? Let me know!
