Christmas is Coming...

Christmas Day is almost here, friends. Hard to believe. I'm enjoying a few days off with the fam. It's rainy and balmy here in Louisville - not Christmas weather at all. In fact, I've watched a few runners trot by my front window. Meanwhile, this is my current activity of the morning:
Yeah, that's how I roll on Christmas break.

We're still trying to round out our Christmas list. I know, bad form. But, with Hubby working up until the very last minute and me with the kids in-tow everywhere we go, it's been a bit difficult. But, it'll all get done. At least we're not in the same shape we were last year at this time - stomach bugs for everyone! Yeah, probably the first Christmas in years where Hubby and I actually lost weight.


When I asked Little Guy what we should get for Gigi (my mother-in-law, above) for Christmas, he thought a moment and then said, "Milk, because I drank all of hers." Classic.

Here's Little Man with my parents at his Christmas program last week. Today is their wedding anniversary, so cheers to you, Mom and Dad. We love you!

During the hustle and bustle of the season, Miss E. and I took time to enjoy some hot chocolate during our holiday shopping.


Yeah, looks like product placement for Starbucks. Note to Starbuck's corporate office: I'll take payment in gift cards. Please and thank you.

Today is full of cleaning and prepping for brunch at our house Christmas morning. We're looking forward to having family over and then heading to Gigi's later that evening for dinner.
From our house to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas. Blessings to all!
