Making a list and checking it twice..going to find out who’s naughty or nice?
This time of year a list is the only way to remember everything that needs to be done..
I write one list before we head out to purchase the items and once we get home, another list is written for the next time..
I have written and re-written this list so many times..it is getting shorter…will this be the last one?
What is on the list?
The dinner menu, the grocery list, the few items left to do to prepare for Christmas dinner..and the last minute gifts I have yet to purchase.
..also on my ‘to do’ list today, this rainy Sunday was to finish the wrapping..oh sure I know some would say why bother, they just get ripped open anyway..but I like them to start out looking pretty..
I purchased this reversible wrapping paper from Costco, snowmen on one side and snowballs on the other....a big ‘fat’ roll that will probably be seen again next year..
..I use the left over Christmas balls instead of a bow..
..this year I even had a little helper..can you see him?
..guarding the presents, just in case ‘someone’ comes home early..
..my pretty blue eyed boy..who has a paper and ribbon fetish..
….’you have to do all these, Momma?..oh boy that is going to take a while..I think I am going to take a nap..my eyes are getting heavy..
..I will just curl up here and rest for a bit..
..maybe Tucker can ‘help’?..’
..sorry Mom, I am busy, waiting for Dad to get home, so I can go to the park’.
..one down..how many more?
..fast forward two hours later..and voila..all done..a sea of red and white..
Thanks for the ‘help’ boys, I couldn’t have done it without you!
..then it was time to do the last minute Christmas Cards…
..the presents were sent over to Carlie’s spare room..away from prying eyes and ‘paws’..
..just a few of her ornaments..
..and her quilted stocking..ready and waiting to be filled?
..only have to wait just a bit longer..
I sure will be a ‘happy camper’ in about 8 days..
…now what else can I cross off my list?
