(hee hee!! look what my sweet brenda made for me!!! thank you dear friend!)
OMG! I'm wearing out here bloggy pals! I know, I know.. take time to relax.. I am.. I even went to bed early last night.. went to bed at 10:00 and was wide awake at 4:00~ thats insane. I like to get up at 5:00 or 5:30... I tried to go back to sleep, but to no avail...then ended up getting up at 4:40.... WTH!!!

swappies from Kelly!!
(and from my dear frien Kelly! thank you girlfriend!! so glad I know you!)
But its all good, I sat at the kitchen table and went over my christmas finances and made yet a few more lists! what gifts I still have to buy, gift cards that need to get picked up, stocking stuffers, a grocery list and what bills I can not put off another day! lol!~

little snow guy!
so two more days of work.. then friday is my day to run and finish up every thing.. saturday I will be able to putter, clean and prepare for our christmas eve company!
I'm so sorry I havent been leaving a lot of comments on your blogs, Ive been checking them all out, but Im struggling right now to keep up.. I LOVE seeing what youre all doing and how everyone is decorating though! I wish we were all REAL neighbors not just virtual neighbors, I would love for us all to be able to visit in person! we could have christmas teaparties and cook exchanges, and ornie crafting days.. wouldnt we have the bestest visits?!!!!

Well, we do have the next best thing with our blogs and the internet.

I hope youre all enjoying this week, making all our your last minute christmas gifts, and shopping.. and baking.. it is all fun. though maybe we all try to do a little too much.. eh hem... ok.. I'll speak for myself.. maybe I do.. but I know most of you do to! lol!

Stay sane, sweetie. I love the idea of being neighbors. Imagine the crafting trouble we'd get into.

Love Love Love all your Christmas decorations. I still have baking to do (cookies, apple pie for my son Kevin and a blueberry pie for my son Kenny and Gingerbread Men for my hubby and all the other kids and grandkids). Going to our son Kenny's house Christmas Eve, going to our son Kevin's house Christmas Morning for breakfast and then going to Kevin's in laws on Christmas for Christmas dinner.
We did Thanksgiving. There's 3 sets of parents living here now they gave us Thanksgiving every year. In laws, kids, parents all do something on all Holidays. What FUN!
OOOO! A Christmas baby would be a wonderful Christmas present. We had a granddaughter born on Christmas Eve 16 years ago. That was fun and exciting. My fingers are crossed your granddaughter arrives just in time for Christmas.
Luv & Hugs

Story of my life: ALWAYS up early. Always UP, period! Sigh. Just got home last night! I HATE that I didn't get to talk to you!!!! GRRRR! We have to talk soon, Viv! We NEED to! I received a very tempting envelope from you while I was away but I am saving it for Christmas morning! THANK YOU and I know I will love whatever is in it! YOU ARE A MAJOR DOLL! The first of my company arrives at 11 today, and more through this afternoon & TONIGHT. The rest tomorrow, and some (who are coming only for Christmas dinner) will be here Sunday. So I will go now & get busy. But I want to wish you & your family the MERRIEST Christmas! LOVE YOU SO EXTRA MUCH!
