It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!!!!!!

I have been super excited! I love this time of year so much! I have my Christmas cards made, personalized, signed and ready for the mailbox! I was hoping to have them out by Black Friday but fell a little short. Regardless, I am determined to get/be organized!!! It's been two years since I sent cards out and it feels good to have my head in the game again. I also have my neighbor gifts made and ready for delivery Dec 1st. I love making time for these simple activies!!

My Dad has been in town and took us to dinner tonight for Christmas. We had a blast at Famous Dave's. Marky was busy rubbing Jazzy's back making him uncomfortable and I'm pretty certain our server thought they were together which makes me smirk and I'm sure that anyone who saw Marky smack Jazzy's backside on the way out thought the same!! Keep in mind that the Jazz man is a homophobe and my darling husband is quite the antagonist!

The children were home for a few hours today unexpectedly. Dayton was busy softly stroking my head. He innocently asked, "Mom is this the hair you had when you were a little girl". He really does make my heart smile. Beans snuggled up close to me as she drifted off to sleep and it doesn't get much better than that!!

We got the tree up today and it looks great! We'll decorate it tomorrow after church/dinner while the fam is here. We're having Prime Rib and the beauty of this is that I am not cooking ;)

I am all set for the children to come home tomorrow morning and I have my Sunday school lesson all prepared for the children. I duped my Dad into attending the 3 hour block at church with me last week and I must say I am quite proud of myself...although I am fairly certain he will not be in attendance tomorrow.

On the B Side: I am grateful for good feelings!

I simply love you! You write beautifully. You are very expressive and paint pictures in my mind with your words! "I don't know words." echoes in my head... I think not, my dear friend! love you...
