Thirty more days..


Just looking at the calendar today and realized that it is one month today, till Christmas..


By this time next month, Christmas 2012 will be just a memory..


The Christmas cards will be mailed..


The house will be decorated..


The presents will be opened..


Dinner will be over..


Looking at the pictures from last makes me realize how much work I still have to do..


and it’s my turn to host our family Christmas Dinner..seating for 8, 10 or 12?


I had better get busy…next month?



  1. Not sure whether we will host or guest. Americans don't eat turkey at Christmas so we will probably host a few friends.

    Your pictures are so pretty. Love the header.

    1. Lots of Americans DO eat turkey at Christmas. It just depends on specific family traditions. Just like elsewhere ... some do and some don't.

      Anyway ... shopping season is upon us. It is countdown time to get all our presents bought and delivered before that big day.

  2. I keep wondering if I'll be wasting my time with the world coming to an end and all :P

  3. We get to be GUESTS cuz we won't have a house till Dec 31...

  4. Hopefully your Christmas preparations will be FUN! My biggest problem is what presents to get for two boys who seem to have everything they want. I asked them repeatedly if the was anything special they wanted for Christmas and neither could come up with anything. I know the 12 year old wants his own laptop, but he realizes that is not in my budget and so won't ask for it.

  5. I love Robbie's comment. What a hoot.

    Yes, we better get it in gear if we are going to be ready for Santa.

  6. The time between our U.S.A. Thanksgiving and Christmas always seem to fly by!

  7. We always have Christmas Eve at our house. that's my favorite holiday of any...all the excitement is built up to a pitch, the kids are hyper and happy. They can stay home and enjoy their gifts from Santa on Christmas. Enjoy the time decorating, shopping and cooking. Like you said, it will be over so soon.

  8. 8, 19, or 12??? How can you plan? If you make food for 12 and only 8 show up, Tucker will be happy to eat some of those left overs. :c)

  9. I bought the first Xmas gift today...for one of our grandkids..Shopping online is the only way to go, especially if the snow is deep...(No snow yet, Thank God!)

  10. ....and the time will go by quickly! My Christmas shopping is done! Yea. First time ever!!!!

  11. thankfully I'm almost ready..we had Christmas with the local kids before leaving I just have to finish up the non local ones...but I'm almost done with that..then its onto decorating the motorhome...

  12. Sue, I am wore out already just thinking of all the things I got to do! LOL
    Beautiful photos of last Christmas though!

  13. That dinner looks delicious!

    Gosh - only a few more days and December will surely be here! I am also a late preparer. I do my best work at the last minute! :)

  14. No wonder you have so many coming to your place for Christmas Dinner. Your decorations are BEAUTIFUL
