Thursday 13-#30
Here are 13 Random things about my week!
  1. There are only 4 more days until Christmas.
  2. I still haven't finished my shopping, and I'm not looking forward to going to the malls.
  3. Today was the kids first day of Christmas Vacation, I like saying that than saying they are on Winter Break.
  4. They still have 2 more weeks. I'd like them to go back now. And I don't know why they didn't get out on Friday. Why on a Weds?
  5. I've been buying my Christmas gifts for me. Some mint lipgloss form Bath and Body Works.
  6. I bought a Vanilla Spice gift set from The Body Shop for my Aunt, I'm going back to buy one for me.
  7. I found some 400 count sheets that were on Sale for $20.00.
  8. When I stopped into Starbucks to buy GiftCards for the Nurses, I splurged and got a Peppermint Mocha.
  9. If you haven't read my post below, yesterday we spent the day baking, and the Eggnog bread really was a hit. Even my son liked it, and he doesn't like Eggnog.
  10. Both my husband and I have tried staying awake to watch Polar Express, but end up falling asleep halfway through.
  11. The kids loved watching A Charlie Brown Christmas.
  12. It was funny to hear Josh come around the corner and say, " OH, Good Grief!"
  13. The baby loves Candy Canes, and since we put them a little higher on the tree, it gives her more incentive to stand up and walk around the tree! Which is a good thing, she's learning to walk, NOT a good thing, she yanks the candy canes down, potentially the tree? Which hasn't happened.
