Winter DYK

Sun, 12-04-2011 - 8:42pm

DYK the official beginning of winter hasn't occurred yet, but I say it's time for Winter DYK!

DYK I need to get out my Christmas decorations and pick a time to get a tree

DYK the Christmas music and movies are already up from the basement

DYK we also have four Advent calendars! (Felt one with pockets for a candy cane, flat paper one with Bible verses behind the doors, a chocolate one for the boys to share and one on my computer from Jacquie Lawson)

DYK today I bought our turkey and ice cream to go with our homemade apple pie (assuming Hubby wants to do that again, though I'll suggest making it on the 24th so the oven's free)

DYK I also shopped for Hubby :)

DYK I just need to check for a couple things for him when I shop for the boys - got a used item instead of new (no wonder it was really cheap LOL) and need an extra gadget to go with one gift

DYK I'll wrap his gifts during the day and the boys at night

DYK I'm almost done wrapping for my family too, just had to redo two gifts since everything's homemade and a first-time experience means the occasional oopsie! ;)

DYK aside from some cookies, that should be it for Christmas prep and I can move on to movies and reading! :D

DYK I'm just have a couple things to wrap, I'm not sure if I'm going to wrap the stocking stuffers this year.

DYK I found out my sister's boyfriend is joining us for Christmas this year, it'll be nice to finally spend time with him.

DYK I was invited to Andrew's parents for Christmas dinner, his mom is an amazing cook!!

DYK I'm thinking about doing some baking, I haven't baked in a real long time lol I'm thinking about trying to bake an apple pie, or maybe pumpkin..

DYK I finished wrapping pretty much everything I had purchased, with more shopping shortly

DYK I didn't yet wrap the kitten's gift, in case I find something else appropriate for his age to add to the package :)

DYK I also picked up a two-level scratching post and perch that we'll try out tonight :D

DYK I hope MI4 is good!

DYK I didn't watch many Tom Cruise movies for at least a few years while he was doing projects that didn't appeal to me (eg Collateral) but then I saw Knight and Day

DYK I really loved that movie and while I still think the man himself is a nut with his Scientology obsession, I'm looking forward to good action movies from time to time ;)

DYK I should fetch a blanket to make a comfy resting place for the kitten when I get out of my chair

DYK he isn't feeling well this morning and I'm hoping it's just a hairball on its way up and not something serious
