10 days to go

Well, Christmas is coming! 10 days, my shopping is nearly complete! My house...well...some rooms are clean...some I wonder if they will ever be. Oh well a clean house is a sign of someone with way too much time on their hands. I have better things to do. I will clean as usual, all night before my company comes.

We got our trees up this weekend...and our lights up last night.

I have 2 sewing projects to finish and a million presents to wrap. Washed 5 loads of laundry today, of course there it sits on the couch waiting for someone to fold that person is me! Only one more load of dishes today....yay!

Vincent lost his 3rd tooth yesterday! Lexi and Francesca had Ice Hockey practice fun! The baby is smiling constantly! YAY!!!! Gianina poured a 1/2 pound of Cocoa all over the house today, following her stunt of breaking my digital camera yesterday. Carmen has been in her room all afternoon making Christmas presents. Isabella has been practicing how to write our friend Bailey's name all afternoon. By the way thank you to Kim, Sam, Joel and of course, Bailey for dinner last night---yum, and the cute outfit and the bucket!!!!!! And Anthony has been able to take the puppy out without help...huge accomplishment! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, so I hope you are all busy gettin ready for your celebrations..Cheers to all of you!

It is 17 degrees outside...brrrr....the dogs need to go out....yikes, glad I don't have to pee in the cold, aren't you? no thanks!

Thanks for the update. I thought digital cameras were safe in the sock drawer!!

Wow!! Jess,
Busy, busy days for you. Your little one is up to some mischief. It's the Christmas excitement, they don't know what to do with all their energy. How did the new camera work out? I guess it's time to hide the cocoa before anyone else gets some ideas.
