It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas?
Well, I know what I will be talking about in my TT tomorrow.... one of my all time favorite Christmas movies.
Robin, I will have to check out Nacho Libre. I asked the Queen if she liked it, and she said "you know me ... I don't watch movies a lot." THAT is an understatement.
So ... is it really looking like Christmas in your neck of the woods? Because it certainly isn't here. And I am really, really, really trying to get into the spirit of it all, but it is hard. When Hobby Lobby starts putting their trees up in August (NOT kidding on that one), and going from Halloween directly to Christmas, practically bypassing Thanksgiving, makes it very hard to get into the swing of things.
The Christmas shopping is almost finished. We just have a few things to finish up for the kidlets. I have to make a scrapbook (yes, I haven't even STARTED) for the Mominator. I bought this really cool chipboard book for her to fill up. I just might go look at Hobby Lobby at their scrapbook kits that are on sale at 30 percent off this week just so I don't have to start from scratch on it. I also have to finish up the MIL's Stampin' Up calendar. But she won't be here for another week or so, so I have time on that one. You know, why do today what you can put off until tomorrow. That's my motto....
The kids have their respective Christmas parties tomorrow and Friday. We have to get party favors to the Man's and Monkey's classes, and books to the Queen's and Man's classes. Those are purchased and wrapped, believe it or not. I am actually AHEAD of the game on that one, only because the Man asked me nicely to get them yesterday, and I had the time to do it.
I haven't baked.
I haven't wrapped (but in my defense, that doesn't happen until the Eve).
The tree IS up. The decorations ARE out. The house IS decorated. So we do have the outward appearance of being prepared for this holiday.
And that is what is important right? No matter how scattered you might be on the inside, as long as you give the outward appearance of being prepared, all things will go well.
And that is my mantra for the remainder of the week.
Now, if we can just get the weather to cooperate as I just heard that we are in for the mid to upper 40s. No white Christmas for us....
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
I'm singing in the shower ...and in the kitchen......
