Oh Christmas Tree


We put up our Christmas tree yesterday. The kids had a blast. They did all the decorating themselves 😉 We put colored on for the first time ever. We usually just do white lights. Hubby has been bugging me for years to put on colored lights. So I bought some after Christmas last year when they were 90% off 😉 After putting up the tree hubby & I got our Christmas shopping done. Other than stocking stuffers we are done!


Time is Going Too Fast!!


We are 4 days from Christmas! I can’t believe it! Where has the time gone? It feels like I just made Thanksgiving dinner LOL! Yesterday was a whirlwind of shopping. I was waiting to go shopping with my mom. She generously offered to buy some gifts for my kids. 😉 Yesterday my day started at 4:45am. My mom was going to pick me up at 5:30 ( Toys R Us opened at 6am) We picked up some much needed coffee and started our hunt for last minute deals. Toys R Us was dead, hardly anyone was there. From there we were planning on hitting Target but it was too early and there were still closed LOL! Walgreens was having a good toy sale so we went both Walgreens. By then were we so hungry. We stopped at a local diner hoping to get a good meal. Yeah right! Ugh it was awful. We were disappointed, I’ll never go back there again. From there we hit Target (finally) Nothing good on sale except that Boggle game I wanted ($8) Final stop – Dollar Tree for stocking stuffers. I made it home just in time to pick up the kids for rehearsal @ church for their Christmas show. I had a nice time hanging out while the kids practiced. I got to talk with some people I usually just say hi to at church. I’m glad I stayed 😉

So today is the big Christmas Pageant at church. My mom is actually coming. I hope she likes my church as much as I do.
