So I think back on the debate on which day Christmas falls on- earlier this month. Technically I have exactly 2 sleeps til it all starts here - So either way you look at it, it falls on both those days LOL.
Today, it was busy and awesome. Lots accomplished and just so glad to lay my head down tonight knowing I GET TO SLEEP IN TOMORROW!! lol.
After morning papers, Dad and I went into town to grab up some chocolate milk and pop. Well, I took the opportunity to go ahead and finish grabbing up the items remaining on the list for dinner *Check* then on the way back, we stopped off to look at something real quick and I ended up convincing to grab up some of his Christmas shopping! *check* - If you've followed before- you know well enough that Dad is usually the LAST hours of a store being opened on Christmas Eve (Last year we were in Kmart when it hit midnight LOL)
So to have people checked off the list is HUGE :D
Then we got the wall papering finished and the rest of the decorations up. I have come to a conclusion tonight however, the bottom half of every christmas tree dislikes me LOL. I blew out the lights on the dad's bottom (yep, just like I did my own earlier) So that got fixed up :)
Baking *Check* Wrapping *Check* Seriously- I'm so excited, because yes- while I might have been busy and constantly going- It means that come the next few days- I can really sit down and enjoy the company of family without rushing around worrying about something being done :)
We started tonight with our light show. :) The kids absolutely love it and it was a nice reward to have pizza and christmas lights after all the hard work they have been doing to help me at dad's house.
It's funny, because I became rather nostalgic tonight. I can remember as a young kid about Roxy's age - all of my family going over to the grandparents and doing something to help out. Those types of memories are ones that really stick with you for life.
Tomorrow me, the kids and dad are going to finish up his shopping in the morning. Then after papers I think I'm calling a family game night. We need it, one day of nothing but fun and play.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!
