Brief Update

Does anyone else feel like the holidays roll around way to quickly? It seems like we just finished our Thanksgiving turkey. What has been going on around here? Let's see.....I could just post a pic of the calendar again. The next week and a half of school consist of parties, DARE graduation, a doctors appointment for S, and wrestling. Stick in some shopping and you have it. We did manage to get the elementary teachers fudge made for Christmas gifts, I haven't had time to do the middle school yet. We also got the gingerbread house made. Kudos to Sam's, for their houses with pre-made icing. It was 10 times easier, and didn't harden up on us prematurely. The kit also came with cookies to decorate, so everyone could see what the house would taste like if we actually ate it. The mud room has suffered some budget cuts, so whenever it gets completed I will post a pic of that. It came down to cubbies or my washer and dryer. I think y'all know which ones won the fight, lol. We think we have a creative solution, so stay tuned. Hope to get the shopping finished today. That will alleviate most of my stress. Gotta go get the oldest child motivated to pack his backpack and wrestling bag before the bus comes. Have a great Tuesday! It IS Tuesday.....right? I need a vacation. :)

At least you have presents under your tree. I have 3 gifts and they aren't even wrapped. My tree looks pitiful!

I so agree, glad I'm not the only one. Where does the time go?? I'm hoping after this week and the kids are out of school things can relax. But then I'll have to stay up late and wrap since the big kids will be home during nap time :)
Is it really Christmas next Friday??

Our kids go through next Tuesday. Wednesday is their first day off.

I agree. I don't know how it gets here so quick. Hang in there too. Can't wait to see the mudroom. I love that idea of a mudroom.
