2. shipping off the last of my Christmas orders.
3. pulling my favorite little ornaments out of their boxes. each one is like an old friend.
4. reading our favorite Christmas books.
5. sweet little vignettes of Christmas joy throughout the house.
6. hanging out with good friends.

i have been SICK as a dog. sick. really sick. i was pretending it wasn't happening. but tuesday it started dragging me under. so, yes, i've been trying to rest and drinking lots of fluids and taking my emergen-c and zinc tablets...etc. ugh. somehow i did get all the out of town family gifts wrapped and off to fed ex and the post office. big weight off my shoulders:) and the kids finished school friday, so no more standing in the freezing cold getting them from school:) yay! hoping to feel better soon, so that we can enjoy the break! bake some cookies and look at old Christmas photos from years past!
hope all of you are feeling fabulous and enjoying the season!
help. every year i say "next year i'm going to be more prepared". giggle!!!!! never happens. never. i haven't even taken the kids picture for the Christmas cards yet!!! feeling better about yourself right about now!? more giggles! oh whatever....normally i'd be in freak out mode....but this year, i'm just trying to enjoy the crazy ride:) i took it easy on the decorating this year. we got the tree up, but i didn't go nuts with all the other stuff this year. that took a lot of pressure of me! i went shopping last week for the things i have to ship off. somehow that will be happening this week? kids' last day of school is friday, so have to have the teachers' gifts ready. somehow those Christmas cards need to get done. ahem. i have my work cut out for me;) good thing i relaxed a bit over the weekend.
i did get a bunch of orders done...yes, those were the last of my snowmen. i MIGHT have 1 or 2 left. i'll let you know:)
oh, don't you worry...i relax too! we had some friends over for dinner the other night...my husband and i did some shopping and had lunch one afternoon while the kids were in school. gotta squeeze in some fun!
what kind of holiday fun have you guys been up to!?
are you ready for santa!!?
i tell you what...life has lots of twists and turns...lots to be stressed out about...jobs, money, life stuff...but you look at that cute little face and it just makes you happy. thanks hen.
