Let's give LTP a try--if the thread gets long, we'll just go into part 2 and then 3 and so on :) And the winner of LTP for this month is also LTP for 2012! So lets get to chatting!

That's a bummer that the party conflicts with another event. I hope she has fun with her great-grandpa and then makes it to the Polar Express ride.

After supper last night, we took the boys to a Santa parade in the city. It was kinda funny when Santa came in on a fire truck that had the Sparky mascot up front - I think the kids didn't know which one to watch 'cause Sparky is so cool. ;)

This morning there was a community breakfast with proceeds going to food hampers and such. I took the boys and it was pretty good food. Santa visited kids at each table, and by the time he got to ours, Ben was really into his food. He accepted a candy cane but otherwise wanted nothing to do with the big guy. LOL Meanwhile Tim went right up for a chat. Such different personalities!

Hubby's office party starts at 5, so I'll make an early supper for the boys in about a half-hour. Hopefully they'll be cleaned up and ready to hang out with one of their oldest cousins after they eat. I should write him a reminder list of the bedtime routine since he starts early this time.

We're having the party at a bowling alley. Dinner is usually catered and then we pay for our own drinks. I may be getting something caffeinated if I'm still yawning a ton when we leave home!

Oops, I think I posted Sunday updates in the old chatty thread. It was a quiet day for the most part. This morning I'm hanging around home waiting for the delivery of Hubby's Christmas presents. Bummer that I need to pay duty to the courier, but I may have had to do that with economy shipping, anyway, so I'm glad the gifts will be here and soon wrapped up! Might put off the little bit of grocery shopping till tomorrow and grab drumsticks from the deep freeze rather than buy ingredients for shepherd's pie...

Things went well yesterday.  Julia didn't want to stay at the party for too long because she knew there were gifts waiting to be opened, and that she was going on the Polar Express ride.  So she came home early and had plenty of time to do everything.  :)

Why does iVillage pick on me?  I see everybody else's siggy but not my own.  :(  Dh just took Julia to get her birthday invitations, then to pick up some dinner from Panera.  I have a giftcard that I received from my mypoints.   I guess I should go finish up my computer stuff before they get back.

Silly iVillage! I see empty posts from myself now and then, but if I edit them, the original text shows up. Weird. Hooray for Panera dinner, btw! I should look up a honey garlic sauce recipe to make yummy drumsticks tonight...
