December-Eve, how did that happen?

Can you believe tomorrow is the 1st of December? That totally snuck up on me. Here's
a little of what's been going on.

The good news is, I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping. I'm completely
done with Santa shopping, woo-hoo!

Emma's birthday party is next weekend though. That'll be some work. We're going
to do a 'movie and the mall' party with about 20 kids. Yikes.

Mark's been at his new job for about 3 weeks now. There's been some ups and downs,
but I think he (and we) are adjusting slowly. He's been working mucho hours, as in he
leaves at 4:00 am and gets back at 7:00 pm, but we're hoping this doesn't last long. Please
hope with us.

Emma is a sheep in her Christmas play and a cuter sheep, I have never seen.

Anna starts basketball practice next week, and is super-happy about it after having missed
the soccer season, because her bad mother didn't sign her up.

John M. has discovered the joy of playing Pac-Man and goes around saying 'I wanna play my GAME, mama!' all the time.

That's all for now. I've been blog-o-boring lately, can you tell?
But I do love y'all. Promise.

I'm SO jealous that you are almost done with your shopping. I've still got a LONG way to go! Wah!!
A sheep in her play? That is beyond cute; I know she will be just adorable.
We have our church play on Sunday. Delaney has a solo, so very excited!

What are you going to do the rest of the month if you are finished Christmas shopping already? I have done the Santa stuff (okay, not all of it - working on Cowboy tickets in Dallas for the oldest) but not finished with all the other stuff.

How are you done with your Christmas shopping? I have barely begun, which is why I probably need to be blog-o-boring. Seriously.

Must. See. Sheep. Pics.

CUTE!!!

Amanda said...

I have not started shopping yet and I haven't done any decorating. However, I have the Christmas newsletter finished. :^)

In this house, we always do the Christmas cards first.
