Have a great day!

Hi all,

Another flyby...what else is new? Have to work 1/2 day today then stop at the grocery store to pick up the last of what I need for the holiday.

The boys were beastly yesterday...I told them I was cancelling Christmas..too bad they're too young to know what I mean...LOL.

Got all the wrapping done last night. All I have to do tonight is put all the cookies into containers for dh's family, put name tags on and bows and I'm done. YEAH!!

No snow here..but they got a bunch up north :(. I'm still dreaming of a white Christmas, but we're only going to have a very cold one with below zero wind chills (like -25 or so...brrrrr).

Have a great one ladies. I may get a personal post in tonight...not sure yet, but I will try. Tomorrow is our big Christmas celebrations with dh's family in the afternoon and mine in the evening. Christmas Day is ours to ourselves...I LOVE THAT!

Have a very, very Merry & Warm Christmas everyone!

Hey Geri, nice to hear from you. I hope the boys behave soon, so you don'th ave to cancel xmas. LOL I know what you mean though. I told Abigail that for each extra good thing she did, Santa would bring an extra gift and for each not so good thing he'd take one away. I hated using those tactics, but she's been very fresh to me lately. Anyway, I think it worked. She's been excellent this week! Hope you have a wonderful xmas with you family at home. Hope if warms up a bit for you. Hey maybe it'l hit zero and you'll feel Keep warm!

12-23-2004, 10:42 AM
Quick flyby for me...

Forgot to thank Geri and Kristin for their Christmas Cards. Syndey is such a cutie...

Today is work. Then tonight is wrap, wrap, wrap. Mel, so glad Abigail is better. No Penny, you need to get Andrew feeling better. Well gotta go warm up the van. We are at a nice warm -2 the last I heard with a wind chill of who knows what.

See ya all later after I suffer through another day of work in the ice chest at work. ( my dad's warehouse is not the most heat efficient building). One of the only places you would want about 2 sweatshirts to wear and some gloves if you didn't have to weigh out candy.

Hi ladies. Sorry I was MIA this morning. I slept a little late, although I slept terrible or I guess BECAUSE I slept terrible I slept late.
Anyways, our pipes had frozen and so we had a slow morning with breakfast and cleaning up and such.
I've also planned some friends of ours to come over this evening for dinner and a Christmas thing. They've got a little 3 year old boy that my kids adore. So I'm making a roast and veggies and some desserts and snacks and such.
I hope everyone is doing well. I'll try to get back on here later when it's not wild around here. Trying to get lunch going on top of this other stuff and get the house cleaned up.

12-23-2004, 06:59 PM
Hey ladies. Thought I'd check in again, may be the last time tonight. I'm getting dinner cooked and dh is working on our pipes and has our water turned off for a bit which slows MY process down some. Our friends will be here around 600ish. I'll check in in the morning before we head to my mom's. I'm assuming these to be some really, really slow couple of days around here.
Hope EVERYONE feels great and has the best holiday ever. Hope everyone enjoys themself. I know most or all of you are dieting and yes having control during the holidays is important, but DO enjoy yourselves and remember it's only two days a year.
I'll talk to ya later.
