Merry Christmas!

It's Christmas Eve. Just thought I'd throw that out there in-case you have been living in a cave somewhere. Perhaps your cave was neighboring mine?

You know when people say "Christmas sure snuck up on us, didn't it?"  (Which is ironic since the stores display Christmas decorations starting in Oct)  I know what they are talking about!

My hubby and I stayed out late last night finishing up the shopping. I hate the fact that we had saved so much for the last minute but we don't have lots of extra cash laying around so we had to spread all the shopping out a month or two. But, surprises of surprises, we had a good time shopping and now we are done!!

That leaves today for laying around in my pjs, maybe doing some baking and wrapping some gifts. I've always thought that is what Christmas Eve is for. Relaxing.  And for sure this year as Christmas being on a Sunday makes it extra busy. And special, really. What better day to celebrate the birth of Jesus than a Sunday!

I hope all of you get exactly what you want for Christmas and that you have a happy and healthy 2012!


  1. Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family!!

    Hope you have an awesome one, filled with everything that makes you smile and nothing that makes you frown!!

  2. Tony has been franticlly running arround picking up this and that for stockings and "emergency" gifts. Also going nuts trying to figure out what gift takes what batteries.

    Then, at 2pm this afternoon he turns to me and says, "Crap. I totally forgot about your stocking."


    Thankfully, I am taking his gift of an entirely clean house (he even scrubed the toilets)in lieu of a full stocking. :)

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Jackie! I didn't know you blogged. I do too, actually, although I've been a little remiss lately. Something about a 5 year-old bent on causing physical harm to himself or anyone within his immediate vicinity leaves little time for writing. I'm pretty sure you know what I'm talking about. I can't wait to read more of your posts! :)


Please comment! Even if you just say "HI!".
