Top 10 reason I love Christmas time

Number 10 Terry's chocolate oranges

Number 9 fires in the fireplace

Number 8 I don't have to get up to take the kids to school

Number 7 treats given to and received from the neighbors

Number 6 Christmas lights everywhere

Number 5 gifts under the tree to squeeze, shake and smell to guess what they are

Number 4 yummy food at a party almost every weekend

Number 3 National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

Number 2 the spirit of giving I see everywhere, people who look like I should be giving them money for food are giving to the change they have to the bell ringers.

and finally Number 1 I love the Christmas season because it reminds me every day of the month what a wonderful gift our Savior Jesus Christ did for us by coming here, gaining a body and finally atoning for our sins by dying for us.

I hope that everyone is having a blessed Christmas.
(also for my Jewish friends I hope your Hanukkah was wonderful!)

Christmas is NEXT week ?!?!?!?!

HOLY COW!I was going along thinking I had time, I picked my boys up from school yesterday and they are all excited that they don't have school again until the 4th of January. WHAT! NO I thought they had school next week, I thought I had more time to finish shopping, to do the sewing I haven't done, the baking I haven't started.


I hope you are all ready and haven't been a procrastinator like me :O)!

Santa had to make an early delivery

So Santa is bringing the kids sleds and being that Santa is a very logical kinda guy he was also bringing them new hats, gloves and in DD's case a new coat. WELLLLL this morning it is -3 degrees Fahrenheit(-19 to the Celsius people out there) SOOOO Santa felt it would be in the kids best interest to have said items now.
To that end he was dragged out of bed early to find where he had hidden the gifts the kids needed (by my sweet hubby who goes to work before dawn and didn't know where I, I mean Santa had the gloves and things)
I hope those of you in the Mid-West where I hear it is even colder stay warm (sending warm thoughts your way) and those of you down under don't melt as I am informed it has been in the mid 40's (that's well over 100 degrees for us state side)
Everyone be safe and enjoy yourselves getting ready for Chritmas, Hanukkah or what ever Holiday you celebrate this time of year!

Its Utah people it snows every year!

Why do people forget how to drive in the snow? I swear it snows every year for at least 3 months if not more. Do you fill up that section of your memory with who is on American Idol or what Brad Pitt and Angelina Jole are going to name the next kid the have?
Why is it that the second it snows people either drive way to fast or way to slow? It took my DH 3 hours and 15 minutes to drive what usually takes about 50 minutes yesterday because of accidents and people afraid of the snow. SIGH!

How hot is it down under right now? I may need to look into moving LOL!

Shock and amazement it's me !

Wow what a crazy couple of weeks!
Some updates...

Mom got her results her tumor was benign (THANK YOU LORD!)
I sent my SSCS package half way around the world about a week ago so soon I can post pictures of my projects.

I received my SSCS gifts and have been a good girl and placed them under the tree, the ornament is adorable

Well when not taking care or mom or my cute nephew that she is the chief babysitter and has had trouble because of the surgery (so I got to play baby for a while then give him back, I think I like that even better than having my own ;O) )

I have managed to get about 4 Christmas presents shopped for and then had to return 2 of them SIGH!

We got our tree up, with the sectional pre-lit tree it almost feels like cheating it was so easy.
It's totally cold enough to be December (it was 8 degrees this morning UGG!) but still no snow that has stuck around. I think I am glad of that LOL!

Thank you for all your well wishes for my mom and I am sorry I wasn't able to respond to everyone.

Just remember I am exceedingly grateful for each and everyone of you!
