I still need to make pecan tassies, pick up a few more presents, and wrap all of the presents.

DH is off until the new semester starts on January 10.

Almost. Need to get one more gift and going to make some cookies for Christmas Eve.

I will be off from Christmas Eve to January 3rd, 10 days off but only have to take 3 of my own days as we get Christmas Eve, the Monday after and New Years Eve. Not sure about dh yet.

Ah....no.

Dh has been "on vacation" for at least a week, but in and out of work...work is crazy for both of right now. It's a good thing in this economy. I wil be on vacation a lot of the next two weeks, on and off.

I am not hosting, my parents.

My brother the chef is in charge, I think prime rib, crab cakes and misc.

Christmas morning for gifts.
