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.

I'll pick up a few stocking stuffers while I am out & about. I got Wayne an astrophotography book & a Life Is Good shirt.Need to get hin a Dunks card & a few silly gifts.
We got a tree the other day and it is all decorated. It looks nice....a hodge podge of what I have. It needs tinsel! 

Tomorrow we are going with the realtor see a couple more houses. One both really like! It is so nice & the yard is awesome! 6.6 acres, lots of trees down back view of the mountains, fruit trees...so much more! Hope it is as nice as looks in pics!!

Wayne's kids will come over Christmas Eve for dinner,presents & Christmas Cartoons. Christmas Day will depend on the weather. If it's nice we'll go visiting everyone  like we did last year- that was fun. If it is snowy & stormy we'll just stay home.Have no idea what we'll have to eat. Maybe a pork pie from Harvey's Bakery & a chocolate cream pie

most of my next week is filled with work

Pat...I was able to figure out that you were replying to me by the mention of hearing aids. Can't figure out who you were talking to with your other replies though.

Yes, J is happy to be hearing better. He used to get a lot of feedback from the old microphones, too, as they were about two years old. That screeching feedback sound used to hurt my ears!! There's no more of that with these new microphones either!So glad they keep making advancements in aiding hearing loss! Your W will be wondering why he waited so long when he finally goes to see a hearing aid specialist!!

Thank you about my TOPS. Both nervous and looking forward to weigh in at the same time!!
