What a week!

It was long, it was windy, it was draining, but it's done!!

Christmas shopping is FINITO! Well, I still have one or two things to pick up for DH and stocking stuffers for him and the baby and a stocking for Baby, but the family gifts are done! Now comes the putting of packages together and mailing everything. Not as much fun, but just as satisfying when finished!

To be honest, it wasn't that big of a strain since everyone is getting pictures. (We had family portraits done last month.) The real challenge was finding decent frames in all the right sizes. I spent almost ten hours shopping this week, but I found frames for all, including the pictures we're hanging ourselves. 10x13 is NOT a common size! All 50% off or more too!

Today I'm catching up on the housework/laundry/baking I didn't get done during the week. DH is helping out a friend with some wiring at his house, so I probably won't see him until late tonight.

It's a blustery and cold day, perfect for settling in with some hot chocolate and a good book or movie later while Baby naps.

  1. Isn't it an awesome feeling to be DONE?!? It allows you to sit back and soak up the joy of the season - and what a special Christmas it will be with your new little one. Enjoy every minute!
