Morning Monday

The weekend flew by in a blur...Sometimes you just have to grab a moment and hold on to it so that you can remember you even had such a time. :)
Got lots done.... gift shopping, (almost done!), returns, groceries, out to lunch with Mom and Bek, work 5-10:30, sleep in 2 days, sit by the fire, replaced non-working lights(previous post) :-)....hung the last garland, wrapped some gifts, worked 2-7:30 hubby made a wonderful gourmet dinner and had it waiting when I arrived home at 8pm, addressed last Christmas cards, shower, crash, up again at 6am and back to work!
Its the 7th day of Christmas! Only 5 to go! Kids arriving Thurs and Friday! Yeaah! Whew! Glad when they get here so I can relax. :)
Have a lovely Monday!

Check out some of the adorable ornaments I got while in Pigeon Forge: The bear for Jadabear, and two for Bek...flip flops for her (she wears them til frost) and her sailor boy, of course. :)

Check out this blog if you want to rekindle some great Christmas memories...She's up to #8 I think and each one takes me back...Maybe they will for you too. :)

Merry Christmas!

Glad you had a great weekend :)

Ours was jammed packed too..can't believe Christmas is this COMING weekend!

My little guy woke up with a fever and a bad cough...not a great start to a week that is sure to be filled with last minute preparations! But, maybe God just wants me to slow down and cuddle him in my arms awhile!@!!!

Anyway, just wanted to say 'hi' and God Bless.

And now for that 9 letter word verification - if I can get it right, maybe you will get these comments;)

What a different LOOKING Christmas, and yet similar in preparation. I've about finished all my present shopping and wrapping, and down to wearing my sleeveless singlet and shorts just to survive the heat. It's the weather for BBQs and sitting outside on the verandah. Thanks for your poetry and prose, it's greatly uplifting.
Love

We just tried to finish our shopping today...yes, TRIED, we are still not done, but almost there=) We had a bit of a crazy week too, I will be posting about it soon. Glad yours was good, the faster they go, the closer to Christmas!!! It is Aiden's first, so we are really excited.

I liked it better when someone else was wrapping my gifts and not the other way around, but Christmas morning is sure going to be worth it.
