Hello friends...I don't have too much to share, well actually I guess I do, I just don't have any pictures uploaded yet, soooo.....here I sit. I did some Christmas shopping tonite after a trip to Starbuck's and a great manicure and pedicure. My toes are a shiny Christmas red, a new OPI color - love it! It was a good night, I needed to decompress and what better way than with shopping, coffee and spa treatments!!!?
Christan's party was wonderful Sunday, I cannot believe he is 1~ we celebrated with cake and champagne, and a few of our closest friends! Blue and white and "birdies" were my theme, since we call him "birdie", it was fun and cute and the big kids had fun decorating small bird houses. I sent home as favors monogrammed ornaments for each of the kids that I made, pink and green for the girls and blue and brown for the boys. Tied with feathers and polka dots, too cute! I'll be sure to post pictures this week hopefully.
So, here is what I am working on this week: Christmas cards (a big stress -er for me!) , Thank you notes for Christan's party, cookie baking for a SWAP I am attending this weekend, party planning for Campbell and Charlotte's school parties next week, menu planning/grocery lists for Christmas week, adding pom-pom fringe to our stockings and starting to wrap! Bryan and I have a "date" Friday night, we'll finish up our shopping...we are just about done. I still hope to do some fun stuff with the kids, a Gingerbread house and green and red paper chains... So, what are you doing? I want to hear about all your preparations! It is such a busy time of year (and throw in two December birthdays too) but hope you are taking time out to count your blessings and laugh and have fun too...and do something nice for yourself it definitely helps to re-energize! So go on... DO IT and report back to me!
