Are your boughs decked with holly?
Ready to travel?
I can place check marks next to only a few of those.

School ended for me at 1pm on Thursday and I have been able to work on some of the family stuff . I have to have everything finished no later than 10am on Monday the 24th, in order to host Christmas Eve in my house and then after they leave and we drift off to sleep- we will wake up to what Santa has brought us and also the Mother in Law.
She will be here Christmas Day til about the 30th. Should be lots of fun!
Really- she's one of those fun grandmas!
Speaking of fun:
There was lots of fun to be had in my room for the last week.
We worked on what we were going to ask Santa to bring us. These are Miss Kindergarten's Dear Santa Craft
(I should probably let her mother know I told her that) But there's always hope for the My Little Pony.
She wants a "jilyon" monster high dolls! I love that we work within the 120 chart and a "jilyon" is a number she chooses.
I don't know.
We also worked on our gift to our parents.
We made these last year, as well.
I learned a few lessons after last year. The main one was to have lots of back ups!
They had fun! I sent an "advance" email that didn't give away the present, but let them know that something very delicate was on it's way home.
The Mr was supposed to work today and I was going to get a ton of stuff done.
In my kajamas.
With a pony tail and a hoodie.
He wants to go "finish up".
There will be a "jilyon" people out there. I'm not in any mood to go.
Every time I witness Holiday Stupidity I lose a little of my Christmas Spirit- kind of like every time a bell rings...- but the total opposite.
I hope to be back before the Big Day- If I am not, I hope that you and yours share a wonderfully warm and safe time together!
(And Special Holiday Wishes for those who are here via these searches):
Also a Super Sweet Holiday Wish to the young man who took the liberties to give me and my Littles a discount last night at dinner:
Thank you, Michael O., you lifted the spirits of EVERY ONE ELSE I know. May your holiday be bright.
