Mom and Dad and I will be putting up the white lights outside, and setting up the tree before I go, which will be fun, and we already watched Charlie Brown with a Bailey's-spiced hot beverage, so it's not really 'No family Christmas time at all.' When we get to Paris, Taylor and I are planning on finding a little tree to put up in our apartment, and I will be bringing a few lightweight gifts that we can open on Christmas morning. I'm sure there will be some face time calls back home as well. I'm also hoping for a little snow on the ground for Christmas, an event that has maybe happened a handful of times in my life.
