We will be going over to my grandma's house like we do every year. We eat, exchange gifts, watch a Christmas movie, and just enjoy the company of our family.

Staying home, making salt dough ornament handprints and finishing the canvas we painted for the grandparents. We will be going to look at lights with hot chocolate in hand tonight as long as my kids are feeling better (4 sick kids lead to one tired momma).

I need to run up to the grocery store to pick up a couple of things. Boo!! Then we're going to my mom's to exchange gifts and have a nice lunch (pecan crusted salmon, steamed broccoli and roasted asparagus). After that it's back home for Christmas movies, hot chocolate, popcorn and an early bedtime for the kids!

Staying home! Probably making the rest of the sugar cookies. Maybe I'll make salt dough ornaments too, everyone is and that sounds fun.

Good luck at your U/S

My 3 year old tries to hide things in her pocket too while we are shopping.

I'm enjoying my day off... I've been on a cleaning kick. I think nesting kicked in.. Not sure when that's normal.. In a little bit I might run to get groceries to make sugar cookies and maybe something nice for dinner but I have no idea what... And of course, Christmas movie.

I spent last night watching the 1947 version of Miracle on 34th street to put in me in spirits and today I just finished up my last minute needs....batteries, stocking stuffers etc. Now I have to clean up a bit and start organizing presents, wrap a few stragglers and then get ready to go to my brothers house for Christmas Eve and Santa Clause. Tomorrow off to my husband's great aunts for dinner.....should be a fun few days! merry christmas everyone

So far today I have run to the grocery store for breakfast tomorrow and quick meals. I'm making buffalo chicken dip to eat today because it's all I want, so that's in the crock pot, done 2 loads of dishes, folded 5 baskets of laundry and put it away, fed our 4 week old puppies, and tended to the Labs out back. Now I'm about to clean the garage, work on more laundry, finish up the dishes, and work on Chapter Manager stuff I have for a local mommy group as well as some school work before we go to Church again tonight at 5 for Christmas Eve Services.

At some point the hubs is supposed to get off his bum and sweep and mop the house for me.

We are having a lazy day today. It's raining and cozy. We are baking special cookies for Santa and running to the local farmer's market for Chase to pick out the perfect carrots for the reindeer

Tonight we will read the Night Before Christmas to the boys and then finish wrapping a few things after they are in bed. We'll probably watch a movie too.

We're making some crockpot chicken tortilla soup (minus the chicken, because I accidentally left the bag out for 4 hours in the store bag and it got hot, so I'm not taking the chance) and staying in all day. Probably going to watch some Christmas movies and do some house cleaning, since we're leaving for 2 weeks on Thursday, and I want the house to be nice before I go.
