1. Everything. Hahahahahaha Really, we need to clear out her room and get her stuff in there, but we don't HAVE stuff, so it's sort of a moot point, I guess. Still, it would be nice to get what we do have in order...and unpack the rest of the apartment a little more. :/

2. I love driving around and looking at Christmas lights, especially with the kids. We have a date this weekend with hot chocolate, blankets, and open windows in the car in sub-freezing temps to look!

I would LOVE to get all the boxes of stuff that we put in the basement when we moved sorted. I'm *tentatively* hoping to do this during my mat leave, but who knows...
We do have our two oldest kids' room almost done, though, and are hoping to move them in next week!!! Then I can FINALLY paint the babies room! Yay!

2. What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday tradition this time of year?
I love the Christmas decorations and wrapping presents to put under the tree. I LOVE to give gifts!

I have a feeling I won't get all the cleaning that I want to get done beforehand. Most of it and what she needs, but I think my standards are going to get rediculous and I will think of something I wanted to do that I didn't do (aka clean my oven. Idk why but i really want to clean that thing!)

2. What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday tradition this time of year?

I just love all the lights and decorations and my yummy Christmas smelling candles. Also, my mom always used to make us sing happy bday to Baby Jesus Christmas morning over a store bought crumb cake and it was so goofy and absurd and we hated it when we were younger, but now I love it and I know I have to continue it. Plus Vivi loves singing

Oh gosh, do we even have to go there? Considering I'm in the hospital about to deliver in a few days... And NOTHING is set up at home... Hmm I don't even want to think about this!!!
2. What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday tradition this time of year?
Christmas movies, music, baking. Taking DD to see Santa.

1. Really want to get the boys room painted, but I have no motivation to do it. Plus deep clean the house, but my body isn't letting me do much of anything lately.
2. Love looking at Christmas lights and taking the kids to visit Santa. We're hanging up lights tonight and it's our first Christmas in this house so I'm excited.

1. Quite possibly getting the crib put together. We're missing some of the hardware and it's DH's job to get that done, but I *really* don't think that is going to happen until she is here.

2. It's not a tradition yet, but we did it last year, and I loved it. We live in the mountains next to a ritzy ski town, so last year we walked around to all the boutique shops and looked at all the things we couldn't afford, but still had fun. Almost all the shops were giving out cookies and chocolates and cider and hot chocolate spiked with Baileys. Just a fun very out of the ordinary activity for us. But unless this belly is gone asap, I would be very scared of knocking things off the shelf with my tummy. Maybe next year.

I wanted to get the girls picks sorted and printed. I have taken thousands of pics, but have not printed a single one since March 2008. I started working on them and fizzled out in 3 days.

2. What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday tradition this time of year?

Eating Nana's sugar cookies and looking at lights in the park.

Organizing EVERYTHING in our apartment. I really mean everything I went to buy baskets yesterday to organize our closet and plan on buying more for the nursery. I'm on a mission but I don't think I'll finish doing it before she arrives. I want the apartment to look picture perfect if people come over and visit.

2. What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday tradition this time of year?

Sending out Christmas cards. Spending time with family and friends. Driving around looking at Christmas lights. My mom's tamales. Last year we started decorating cookies Christmas Eve and this year I'm continuing that tradition.

i still have eight or nine lego dudes to paint for the nursery (ten are done!). but there's soooo much going on in the next few weeks, and so much more to prep for harvey that i have no clue when i'm going to get to them. it also entails me carrying my paint and easel up the stairs, which i've been totally unwilling to do. ::

1. What is one thing you want to accomplish before your LO arrives but KNOW you won't get to it? Finishing my field work for school. I am about 60 hours shy right now, and if I wasn't pregnant, I would be done already, but I just don't have the energy/stamina to go as much as I would like.
2. What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday tradition this time of year? Lights on the houses, and listening to the cheesy Christmas station on the radio!

1. Shawn and I are pretty much redoing our house room by room. He just finished putting hardwood floor in the kitchen that I loooove. I am in the middle of overhauling my laundry room and master bath. Our house was built in 97 but I keep seeing where we could make improvements. We are also going to build on a new master bedroom but it looks like we won't be able to start until the spring..boo

2. My favorite tradition is finding matching pj's for the kids on Christmas. I was having a hard time finding them in all the sizes I needed this year but everyone will match but River who has some red and white striped ones. I love those pics every year.

2. What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday tradition this time of year? That's tough...one we are doing this weekend. We will go get new pj's for Christmas Eve, each of us pick out a new ornament for the tree then get hot chocolate and drive around and look at Christmas lights.
The other favorite is the kids read Twas the Night Before Christmas by the tree before bed on Christmas Eve.
