Friday night, my family (plus one of my sisters friends) drove to a little town called McAdenville near Charlotte...aka "Christmastown, USA".
|TIME called it one of the top "Christmassy" towns in the US|
We had such a great time! My sisters and I also got to open an early Christmas present from our grandparents (labled specifically "open before Christmas") which turned out to be new ornaments for us to hang on the tree! My gold, glittery angel looked perfect on our tree:
My family and I also headed to South Park Mall, to do a little Christmas shopping and pick up a few more gifts. While we were there, I saw this GIANT chocolate Santa Clause...yes, it is actually the size of a small child:
Finally, we made Christmas cookies! Well, I made the actual cookies and baked them...I left the decorating to my family because I had to come back and study for exams--blahh. We bought some pretty Christmas tins and are going to use them to hand out our homemade cookies to the neighbors!
How did you spend your weekend? Preparing for exams, or getting into the Christmas spirit?
