We still need to decorating our gingerbread houses and cookies. It's all baked, just not decorated. I also have a bit more baking to do.
Finish getting my cards out! ACK! I'm way late already!
I'm not hosting dinner, but we're having turkey dinner at the in-laws. I'll be making the potatoes and fresh buns at her place. I'm also taking care of dessert, a birthday cake for Jesus - Angel food cake with whipped cream and strawberries.
What is left to do for Christmas that you need to do? Wrap gifts
What do you plan to have for Christmas dinner? Christmas Eve - not sure, having dinner at my IL's and she hasn't finalized the menu. Probably Mexican - it is kinda a Texas Tradition. Christmas Day we will be at my IL's too and it will be Ham and I am bringing Scalloped Sweet Potatoes and Apples. What do you NOT like about the Christmas holidays? The cold weather. The lack of money.
AJ (age 7) & Katie (age 2.5) PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.
I have pretty much everything done. We are having dinner at my Gram and Grandpas...every year We have prime rib roast, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, etc!
The one thing I found I do not like this year is how commercialized I feel it has become. We started talking about Christmas and before you know it I was dreading it because we just don't have that much $ this year. And I was like, whoa...it isn't all about the money and the gifts! But other than that it's my favorite holiday and my favorite time of year!! Our anniversary is right after Christmas, we had a Christmas theme wedding...and I am OFF on Christmas for the first time since we've been married and had kids..I am soooo excited!
What is left to do for Christmas that you need to do? Need to wrap 2 gifts
What do you plan to have for Christmas dinner? Eating at Mom & Dad's... don't have to bring anything!
What do you NOT like about the Christmas holidays? I do not like when I get so focused on what to get everyone and all the stress, that I forget what it's really all about. And I don't like undecorating the house. I LOVE the lights and all the Christmas-y stuff!
