Just have a minute...

This WILL be a quick post I promise, because frankly, I don't have time. Which is also the reason I didn't post yesterday and probably won't for a few days more.

Sawyer fell asleep in the car after dropping Savannah off at school and running a couple of quick errands and now he's in his bed singing to himself. I hate when that happens... fall asleep the last five minutes of the trip and then wake up pulling into the garage and decide that's all the nap he needs. He had time for at least another 45 minutes of napping once we got home, but noooo; he decides it's time to sing. And then poop. And then sing some more.

I just wanted to brag a bit about my accomlishments last night. I buckled down and slaved away on the Christmas gifts I'm making and I got seven done!!! Ryan finally made me go to bed at 11:30 because I was burning myself right and left on the hot glue. But I am so excited because that means I only have three more gifts to do that are getting shipped out to friends and family and those three are easy peasy ones. Well, one might be a little work, since I don't know exactly what I'm doing yet, but the other two are seriously just slapping on some paint and calling it good. Yay! I am so excited to be done with crafts for awhile. Well, techinically I have four or five more gifts to do for the kids and Ryan, but they're all pretty mindless... not much creativity required. It was all in the planning, so now the actual production will be easy.

Did I mention I am so excited for Christmas?!?

p.s. update on tree.... Ryan is a miracle worker. We took it down, trimmed and cut and straightened and repositioned, and whalah... we have a tree that can stand on it's own and not have to be tied to a million points. It actually looks a little better too, shapewise.

Today's to-do's:
  • wrap all gifts to ship
  • get gifts situated in boxes to ship
  • work on three remaining projects to ship
  • redecorate Christmas tree
  • hang garland around dining room windows (I was waiting to see if we would get around to painting in there, but I don't think that's going to happen)
  • put away Christmas storage boxes
  • and oh yeah, more laundry
Okay, gotta go pick up SJ. Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Heather, I hope your "getting your packages ready to ship" goes better than it did for us. We only had one box to ship, but it turned out to be quite the ordeal, spending several days trying to fit the packages in the correct sized box or boxes (so, could you please revive the ribbons and bows, as I am sure they will be looking very sad when you finally get them after being manipulated and squeezed into several different boxes?) A tip: if you are using UPS, try to ship in one box, as large as you can without incurring the "oversize" additional fee -- it costs more to ship in additional boxes. I will be praying for you that it will go much smoother for you, especially since you have several boxes to ship! Another tip: if the boxes are under 4 or 5 lbs, it is less expensive to use USPS, even if you buy insurance and delivery confirmation, which usually speeds up the delivery time, but they do charge an additional fee (only $3) for oversize boxes -- just check out both websites; you probably already have. Give the kids a big hug and kiss from us! Has the big white envelope arrived yet? I will try to check into it and let you know. Have a relaxing holiday preparation period after your packages are shipped!
Love, Mom/Gramma Debbie
