Jingle Bells, Batman Smells

______Hey there, everybody!  I hope that you're all having a wonderful Christmas Day and that you're all able to spend time with your families and friends, or at least that you're having a relaxing day off in general.  Last night, I ate my weight in peanut butter fudge and chocolate covered cashews, but hey, Christmas only comes 'round once a year!  Everyone needs their yearly food-induced coma which they regret upon waking the next day, no?  Eat, drink, and be merry, my delightful citizens!

Christmas Ornaments

______
The weather here's supposed to get pretty nasty later this afternoon--there are predictions of tornados, hail, and heavy rain.  In other words, the state of Alabama's probably going to take quite the battering in the next 24 hours.  I'm not really looking forward to it, mainly because storms of any sort scare me to death and make me uber nervous and shaky... They always have ever since I was little, so I'm just hoping everything will pass us by without much damage.

______Tornados are really freaky because you never know when or where they're going to hit; they're so unpredictable and you really can't do much to prepare for them other than listening to the weather channel and constantly checking the sky.  I've had far too many nightmares involving tornadoes, and I clearly remember our family having to hide in the basement of our old house when there was an awful tornado nearby.

______But alas, there's no use dwelling on such a disastrous subject on such a joyous day--it will be an interesting way to spend Christmas Day is all.  At least we don't have to worry about running out of food with all these chocolate-covered delicacies... Eeeep!

Howdy! I could have sworn I've been to this website before but after reading through some of the post I realized it's new to
me. Nonetheless, I'm definitely happy I found it and I'll be
bookmarking and checking back frequently!

And Robin laid an egg!

I love how decorated your house is and those are some gorgeous ornaments! All your chocolate-covered goodies sound impeccable. Send some over my way? ;)

Stay warm and safe with all the nasty weather heading your way. I'm sure it'll all pass in no time, especially once the storm realizes who he's dealing with. Merry Christmas, Ali!

Your house looks perfectly Christmas-ified. I love it so much. I hope you had a marvellous day and ate even more chocolate things and got some chocolate as presents (because we all need some for the rest of the year right??)

Merry Merry Christmas!

I get a little fearful of storms too. I live in Oklahoma so we constantly get tornadoes, so I've been taking cover my whole life. It's never been fun. Hope you had a blessed holiday :) Xo

Merry Christmas Ali!!! These Holiday photos look so sharp and bright. I love them! I hope the weather isn't as bad as you thought it would be. I get pretty nervous during storms as well, so I can relate. Hope you are doing well!

I understand your fear of bad weather. When it's starts raining really hard, I'm already scared. Hope your neighbourhood is saved from any damage! Enjoy your holidays, dear xoxo

These photos are lovely, especially those stunning ornaments! I'm a few days behind, but I hope the weather held out where you are. Tornadoes are definitely the worst. We have them occasionally where I live too and they also give me nightmares! Too much wizard of oz perhaps? haha.
