Almost ready for Santa to come

December To-Do's
  • Outside Christmas decor.
    The drive way is lined with white lights and the wreath is on the door.
  • Christmas Tree
    This year's theme is red and white/silver.
    Seema has done very good with not touching the ornaments, presents, or nativity
  • Wrap Presents
    Partial Check.
  • Gingerbread House
    We had a blast making this Sunday. Our first gingerbread house as a family.
  • Christmas Movies
    We love that ABCfamily is having the 25 days of Christmas with Christmas movies galore.
  • Christmas Cookies
    Made Magic Cookie Bars.
  • Snow
    Check. We got 3 inches the last time. It's snowed twice so far this month.
  • December Daily Scrapbook Album
    Partial Check.
    It's started, just a bit behind. I'm still on day 12 and it's already the 22nd. Will be playing catch up this week.
  • Christmas Eve and Christmas Day planned
    Christmas Eve we're hosting dinner, then snacks and movies.
    Christmas Day we're hosting brunch, then simple dinner.


I'm preparing for 2009. Trying to think of my goals for this coming year and what I want this year to be for me and my family. I am fully inspired my Ali Edwards. Ali does a "one little word" that you think about the whole year through. Like it guides you through the year and inspires you daily.

These are the list of words I have so far (trying to narrow it down over the next couple weeks)...
Accept {to regard as normal, suitable, or usual}
Appreciate {to be grateful or thankful for}
Discover {to see, get knowledge of, learn of, find, or find out; gain sight or knowledge of}
Invest {to use, give, or devote (time, talent, etc.), as for a purpose or to achieve something}
Moments {A particular period of importance, influence, or significance in a series of events or developments}

Pictures coming soon....
  • Seema with Santa
  • Making our gingerbread house
