I have to say I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I have still lots to do including shopping, wrapping, a little decorating left, baking and more napkin orders. Hubby and I are getting a sitter and going out to do some shopping and dinner and I am really looking forward to it. We occasionally go shopping together, but usually have the children with us, so this will be fun to pick out gifts for them.
I have gotten most of my Christmas cards out-thank goodness. I used the above card from my friends at Whitney English. (not my children in above picture) I don't have an organized address list. Each year, I say that I am gong to do my Christmas cards in October and it never happens. I went through my address book and Mr. 5's school directory and had two of my friends send their lists of addresses to me. In January, I am going to organize this list, so next year I will be prepared.
Last night was our annual cookie and ornament exchange and it was a success. I have been eating cookies all day and will be glad when they are all gone! I will post my recipe soon!
I love Christmas and as the children get older it is even more special. The weather is supposed to turn cold tomorrow, which will even put us more in the mood!
How is everyone else doing with their check lists?
