Ah I feel like I am finally coming up for air! In the past 30 days… heck, the past two and a half WEEKS, we’ve dealt with the norovirus, colds, and I got MARRIED!
With everyone finally feeling better I’ve been running around like crazy trying to prepare for Christmas. The tree is up and decorated, the mantle is also decorated, simply yet pretty. The tree on the other hand is crazy and full of color. Daniel LOVED decorating it although I realized we need to buy shatterproof ornaments as we had a lot of casualties! I wonder if after the holidays if Christmas decorations and such go on sale?
I’ve also been doing a lot of baking! I have in the fridge right now, dough for Maple Sugar Cookies and I baked two batches of Chocolate Gingerbread Brownies. It’s funny in a way, how much I love to bake considering I rarely if ever EAT what I bake. I know my husband gets a kick out of my baking urges. I always make sure my family has something homemade for dessert and snacks, plus Keith brings his lunches to work (which either I make for him or it’s leftovers) and I want him to have a really awesome ending to his meal. I know. Very housewife like.
I will be mailing out my holiday cards by the end of the week and so far I am excited to be EXCHANGING cards with EIGHT people! I know that seems like a small amount but I LOVE real mail and I always take great care to write something thoughtful in my cards! It drives me INSANE when people mail cards and just sign their names to them. What’s the point in keeping a card like that? I also hope to mail out some goodies as well, just depends on when I can find the energy to deal with this frigid and snowy weather to buy what I need!
I’ve also bought all of Tristan’s and Daniel’s Christmas gifts, however there may be one or two more items I would like to to get for Danny as he is such an awesome big brother and helps SO MUCH that he deserves a few extra goodies. All in all though, we did NOT go crazy for gifts. I did make sure to get the main gift that he has been talking about for months though.
So tell me, how is December going for you so far? What’s going on for Christmas?
