On this Christmas Eve I want to start by updating a couple things...
First Grandma is doing well, she copes well with being alone as my grandfather passed away 27 years ago - she is in good spirits and has enjoyed the things my mom and I have brought her this past week. It is still shameful the way HC handled the situation so late in the game but Grandma is good and I thank you all for the well wishes.
Second, I got the sketchers - they magically appeared in the mail and they fit. I got the gray/black pair...they were a KIDS SHOE...Yes a kids shoe - this would not be my first time buying kids shoes for my self. The best part about it is kid shoe prices...don't ask me how they can sell me a kids shoe in my size for $35 but if I were to buy the same shoe in womans in would be $70...
We started baking a bit early this year and made Playdough Cookies first...they never made it to the blog and since I am playing catch up here they are! I got the recipe from here...and it was FUNTASTICLY Fun!
And lastly a Hailey update...SHE FORGOT HOW TO SLEEP! Remember Busted? Well ever since then I swear to you she forgot how to sleep. Up and down all night long, up before the birds in the morning...OMG it is awful. I can only hope it will settle down after Christmas the anxiety really has a grip on her toddler brain!
Ok, that said...I am done. yes, you heard me I am DONE. All the presents are wrapped - Christmas can come. Yesterday we baked and today we will frost... and get ready for our trip to Beaver Creek to see Grams, Gramps, Uncle Brad and Aunt Anna for Christmas (we will leave mid-day on Christmas) and I could not be happier! Hopefully now I can just sit back and enjoy quality time with my family (or put in ear plugs and tune out all the whining, fighting, begging etc). But I am done and Christmas can come and that is great! I have NEVER been done 24 hours early!
I leave you today with ALL happy thoughts towards the merriest, happiest Holidays you can possible have!
