is it friday yet?

nutcracker 4
(went to see this the other night with my girls!)
Im a bit crazy this week and am feeling that holiday stress.. soo much to do. but Its all good. Im good.. I will just keep moving forward.. one bite at a time.. it will get done. I was up at 5:00 am again this morning wrapping presents! most everything is wrapped now and most of my shopping is done. I still have some things to pick up and a ton of gift cards to get. nutcracker 3
(just have to say, male ballerinas have nice butts!)
what I really need to focus on now, is getting these 5 stockings made and finishing up some other things which need to go into the mail! like.. yesterday! I have a ton of stuff to do this weekend (like everyone else!) including a family party and all my cookie baking. I'm only doing 5 kinds of cookies.. the same 5 I do every year, sugar cutouts, gingerbread, peanut butter kisses, coconut date balls, and jam thumbprints! I dont think i'm sending out christmas cards this year... for shame for shame! I havent gotten to it yet, and just dont think I will have the time. stocking stuffers
(stocking stuffers I'm working on)
Robby and Tiffany have moved back into my house so they can save money and pay off some old bills so they can get married and start out debt free. which means... very soon, like in about two weeks, we'll be having a baby! Looks like she'll be having a c-section right after christmas as the baby is breech. OK.. Off I go to cut out christmas stockings and to pack up my mothers christmas package!
christmas kitty
(giftie for my mother)
have a great day!
Is it the weekend yet????? hurry up friday I need you!

Oh, lil' Viv! You do SO much & sometimes I worry that you forget to take care of YOU. I wish I were there to help you do stuff! PLEASE, remember to stop sometimes & JUST BREATHE. I love you and don't want you to collapse in a Christmasy heap! And, YES! I say it IS the weekend. So REST. Love you to bits & also love all the pretties you showed, 'SPECIALLY YOUR MOMMY'S GIFTY!

Viv this looks magical. What a treat. I think my daughter is old enough now to appreciate this. I will have to put it on the list for next year. Almost Friday. I need it too. My oldest has finals at HS and we have been cramming all week. Love all your bits and that kitty is cute as can be. Smiles...Renee

What a super sweet gift for your Mother and I'm completely smitten with those stocking stuffers. We missed the nutcracker this year, but it's always a favorite tradition with me. Best wishes with your additional family and helping with a new baby. Lots of changes ahead! Thinking of you!!

Christmas hugs!!

I just love the Nutcracker, I watched it on TV last night. The little kitty gift is so cute. Your mom should love it. You are so lucky to have a baby in the house for awhile. It will make your life even more crazy, but it will be fun! Take care, Cindy

PS - I just received my tags from E's swap. Loved them!

Hi Viv,
I LOVE your teddy for your Mom!!! You make the best gifts!
WOW..are you busy! Making stockings, baking 5 kinds of cookies and then to have the "kids" move in with you! YIKES!! The ballet looks awesome! That was a nice treat!
Take a bubble bath! Sounds like you need a little "me" time!
Warmest Christmas wishes,
