Already excited for Christmas next year...

We are so busy at the Merkley house, but I just wanted to post a few pics from Christmas... It was the best, and I'm already looking forward to next year's Christmas. Do you want to know why I'm already looking forward to it?! I'll tell ya!
Every year I save up some money so that I can shop after Christmas for Christmas stuff. On Dec. 26th, everything is 50% off, and since I'm cheap and poor, that's when I go and buy my stuff. I usually get all my gift wrapping/bows/etc. for the whole year as well as any other cool goodies. If there is something I want but it's still kinda expensive I pray it's still there a few days later when everything is 75% off. I found SOOO many cool things this year, but my favorite was a white swirly cupcake tree holder for $2.50!! Gotta love a bargain!

Me and Hannah (Tara's oldes)... if you look real close you will see that I got BRACES!! Crazy, I know, but I'm finally getting used to them and they aren't as bad as I thought they would be.
Taylor Lautner showed up for dinner on the Luna side Christmas Eve, so I couldn't resist the pic opportunity.
