It's the most wonderful time of the year...

...If you've finished going to the post office! Being the last minute person that I am I managed to get the 2 boxes I had to ship out and I got most of my cards out too! Ah. I was utterly impressed when I walked into our pathetic little post office and there wasn't a line. Yes! Too good to be true. I went all over today running errands. Seth tagged along because he doesn't have a choice. I went all the way down to a place called Stitch and Sew. Holy crap, they have EVERYTHING you'd need to sew. I don't know if I'll be going there for my quilting fabrics but they had elastic which I need to complete some pajama bottoms for my family. Yeah, I'm not done with those yet. I have six days left.

We've done oddles of Christmas related things as of late. We got our tree up last weekend. We listened to John Denver and the Muppets while we decorated.

Made some ginger bread cookies last night. We decorated them today.

I'll make some more this weekend as gifts for the teachers. I think an ornament and some cookies is a better gift than something that says "worlds best teacher" on it.

Tomorrow we are taking Simon and a few friends to see The Tale of Despereaux and then we'll have a low key party for him. I guess I should go make his cake.

We're also going to go see Santa this weekend. It should be fun for Seth this year. We saw Santa yesterday out driving around in his firetruck. Didn't you know Santa hangs with firemen in NJ? Seth was very excited to see his friend Santa.

I have been working on some projects but don't have photos to show you. I'll remedy that soon.

Last night I discovered I'd gotten another gift from my Secret Santa in the MOMS Club. It's been very sweet. We got a mini loaf of bread already. Yesterday I got a cute green cup with some cappuccino mix... it's like someone knows me. :)
