Merry Christmas!!

Yea!!! Christmas is almost here. Seven days to be exact!! This is my favorite time of the year. I was a little behind this year on my shopping, but Tom and I went last Saturday and pretty much wiped out the entire list!! I also did quite a bit of online shopping, which I love, especially now when pretty much everyone is offering free shipping!!

Tom has been working out of town the past couple of weeks. I usually don't like when he is gone, but this week was kind of nice!! I put Avery to bed at about 7:30 every night and went in the basement and wrapped gifts, and I didn't have to feel guilty about being down there all night long!!

Saturday night we are headed to the Gatti residence for a little Christmas Party!! It should be lots of fun!! I'm planning on taking green bean casserole and some christmas cookies.

Jenny and I baked cookies last Thursday. We started at 9am and we baked, and baked and baked and baked until about 10pm!! We had sooooooo many cookies.....8 batches of cut-outs, 3 batches of peanut butter blossoms and 3 batches of monster cookies!!

Did I mention that I'm so excited for Christmas this year!?! Avery will be so much fun, I can't hardly stand it :o)

Bumps, Bruises and More.....

Well, Christmas season is upon us, and I have already recieved several christmas cards. So I decided that I would dress Avery up today (Wednesday) and try and get some pictures for our cards to send. I should have taken them early this morning, but we were wayyyyy to busy. Then I should have taken them when Avery woke up from her nap, but no....I fed her lunch instead....and for some reason I gave her a cookie with green frosting for dessert, and it stained her face!! I should have taken the pics after the green frosting finally faded, but no.....I called my sister and started gabbing!! Then.....BANG.....SCREAM......Avery tripped over her feet and fell right into the corner of the walls.....instant bump/bruise on her forehead with a line all the way down to her chin!! Poor thing :o(. She finally calmed down, about 2 hours later, and I attempted the pictures. I got one!! It doesn't show the bruise too badly!!

Thoughts for the day:
~Don't procrastinate!!
~Can't believe Christmas is 21 days away......I need to shop!!
~I love my family :o)
