Monday and the last shopping week before Christmas, is everybody ready?

Where will you be spending Christmas : at home, at relatives, in the Bahamas?  
If at home, what will you be serving?

Hope you all have a wonderful week.

Donna... I don't know what we'll do Christmas Day. Probably just hang around here and eat leftovers, lol!  I guess we could go out that night and see what lights people have put on their houses, or maybe I can talk him into going to a movie.

ANN:

good that it's an easy meal for you... it will be fun having Riley there, IMHO XMAS is for kids , so much fun watching them.  (Mike is too young this year, but ds/dil will have fun opening all his presents LOL)   I like your idea of making a batch of cookies throughout the week... that's a good strategy.    You sound happy Ann and I'm happy for you...

HI All.

We bought the tree today,, not tall as usual , but something my height so that I do not have to stand up on a ladder to put the deco on it (strike the thought of me up on a ladder).   Not sure when I will put it up,, not tonight though.

Wish dh would decide what to buy the kids for XMAS,,,,

I babysat this morning /early afternoon,,,, that was fun.  Mikey and Coffee were very good kids LOL

Cleaning lady was here yesterday so all is OK , she'll be back on the 27th. 

Wed : out to dinner with ds/dil and kids (hopefully some shopping during the day, many errands to run)

Thursday:  nothing so perhaps will put up the tree then. (Mikey gets all his vaccinations in the morning)
Friday:  go back to Neurologist to see what's up.

XMas dinner on th e25th  will be : roast turkey, chestnut dressing, gravy, mashed pots, and I'm making a box cake (yes GASP a box cake) in the shape of a snowman for dessert.  Easy dinner and everyone likes it.

HI PAT!

I also am not sure what a Dunks card is but thinking it could be a GC to Dunkin' donuts?  I like the life is good T-shirt!     You have fun going around visiting, hope there's not snow or not enough to hamper your visits.

We had our snow the past 10 days , so there is no white XMAS in sight for us this year,, and I don't care....

Suzan... I agree, Christmas is for kids. I don't even remember what we did before Riley came along! The holidays were much more boring, I know that! As for being happy, I am, most of the time. Occasionally my old end of the year blues try to creep back in, but I keep thinking of what fun we'll have with Riley and I feel better, :-)

Fun on the babysitting Suzan,
Bet that was lots of fun <g>
Looks like a fairly busy week for you.
When/have you gone to the doctors yet?
You putting the tree up late too.
Great idea for you to NOT stand on any ladder.

Have a good week & hope you're feeling good :)
