If that's even a word...Smile! Believe! It's the most magical time of the year.
I actually kind of enjoy the days leading up to the big day and the rush of finishing up last minute things.
We went shopping yesterday. I ordered the Step 2 Kitchen for Sissy and had it sent Site to Store at the Mart of Wal. It had come in, but I knew I wouldn't be able to lift it or conceal it from her if I went in on Monday, so I got one cart and went about my weekly shopping with the kids and the Evil Twin went to do the pick up, then put the box in the van, covered it with a blanket and voila! Secret still intact!
And with that, I think we are officially done with shopping for the kids. Buddy and Sissy are allowed to ask for 3 things from us and 3 things from Santa. That cuts down on the holiday chaos. And, they get other gifts from relatives, so they make out like bandits every year.
Not to mention, they each have a birthday shortly after Christmas (Buddy in Jan. and Sissy in Feb.), so it can easily become completely over the top unless we put a limit on things.
I know I didn't do the Friday Secrets, but I only had one by Friday. Over the weekend, I did receive another secret - hopefully, I will get more throughout the week and I PROMISE I will post them all this coming Friday. Email me at email@example.com or DM me on Twitter...whatever you feel comfortable with. I might add in a secret of my own this week. I'll let you know if I do.
And, with that, I have a full day to work on Christmas cards and a knitting project I REALLY need to finish up. Plus laundry and other household chores that need my attention. Never a dull day around here. Something always needs to be scrubbed or tidied or followed up on.
Happy Monday, tweeps!
