The Final Countdown
Yep, the final days until Christmas and what do you know…..?
*All my shopping is done (and wrapped) before Christmas Eve for the first time ever!
*The highlight of the zoo visit was watching the panda bear poop.
*My big kids think the abbreviation CN means either Canada or Connecticut. Why they didn't consider China is beyond me.
*Evidently it IS possible to subtract six cookies from zero. You just make more cookies.
*No matter how much food you put in the pantry, someone will always say, “There’s nothing to eat!”
*None of my kids have any common sense. I’m a bit scared.
*Wrapping presents without labels is not a good thing.
*There is no such thing as “no talking medicine”.
*Katie fell asleep reading the newspaper. At 5pm.
Yep, the final days until Christmas and what do I want….?
*All my kids home for the holiday. Hard with Katie working a retail job at school an hour away. Sigh.
*No screaming and yelling from little people. Like I’m ever going to get that wish…
*No more shopping at all. Maybe???
*Laughter and smiles to fill the house.
*No more school. Sigh. Two more days to go.
*Visits with family and friends….
*Lots of good food and drink(s)…..
Yep, the final days until Christmas and guess what??
*We are thankful for good friends and family that fill our lives. Blessings to all as you begin this holiday week.
