I don't think people ever get "ready" for Christmas - we just run out of time. This was in the Let it Out section of the newspaper a few days before Christmas, and this became my motto when I started thinking about all the things I wanted to do and just didn't get done. Then I saw this post and was inspired by all the things that I didn't do this Christmas!

*We had a house full of guests this Christmas and I didn't get one group picture!

*I didn't do laundry for 10 days!

*I didn't freak out when my boys ate Laffy Taffy for breakfast!
*I didn't get very many Christmas morning pictures and most of them look like this.
*I didn't make my boys get dressed for 2 days!

With all the things I didn't do, we still had a great time with good family and friends and are very much looking forward to a happy 2011!!

CHRISTmas is Coming!

I've been telling a friend at work since June that "Christmas is coming"! It's become a little bit of a joke between us. I've told her on Facebook, text messages, and of course face-to-face every Monday and Friday. And Christmas is coming even if I'm ready or not. I think I'm ready, although I'm sure I'll have to make one last trip to the Walmart. Tomorrow we have Christmas Eve church service, then Chinese food, then Christmas will be here! We are eagerly counting down the last days until we get to celebrate with lots of family.
Merry CHRISTmas to you and yours!!

Megan went to Hot Topic to get this shirt yesterday. They were out of stock, so she came home with some Salt N' Vinegar Crick-ettes.
She and Noah decide they are going to eat them together. That's what good siblings do.Megan got the whole thing down. She actually said it was not bad.
Noah got the whole thing down, started gagging on the bad aftertaste, then proceeded to throw up in the kitchen sink. No more crick-ettes for Noah!
