There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays...

All my bags are packed...I'm ready to go...T-minus 6 and a half hours until I hit the road to head to my folks for Christmas. Remember when you were little and it was the last day of school before Christmas break? That is how I feel right now at work. I'm so ready to leave! Do I REALLY have to be here? I filled my iPod with enough Christmas songs to last me the three hour drive. My truck is packed with my suitcase, presents and laptop and safely waiting for me in our secured parking garage here in the "big pink building".

I can't remember if I posted a picture of the Christmas tree in our lobby. This is view of the lobby from my 5th floor office window.

We have a reindeer sitting on the bench outside the building. 

It's kinda creepy, but I couldn't resist getting a picture by it! :) Yes, I'm wearing my Santa hat today!

So, I wanted to post this video of my friend James David Carter singing "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". He is awesome, I love his voice. For more info on him, go to his Facebook page here, his Myspace page here or his Twitter page here.

Since I'm going to my folks today, I can't guarantee I'll be able to update my blog until I get back next week. I'm going to try hard to though. Just in case I don't get a chance, I wanted to wish you and your loved ones a very MERRY CHRISTMAS. May you be blessed!
