Christmas in our family....

Today I am ...

...wrapping!  I don't know why I do this to myself every year!  Instead of wrapping gifts as I buy them, I just "plop" them in the guest room and then I have a monumental task of wrapping waiting for me!  So, today I tackle that mountain!!!  Good thing is I recorded this week's episode of "Biggest Loser" so I have a great show to watch while I wrap! :0) 

(BTW...I love the "Biggest Loser"...such inspiration!  And, I need it this time of year when every time you turn around there are "goodies" just begging to be eaten!! :0/ )

...already?  It really did sneak up on me!  I've been Christmas shopping, the decorations are all up..but, it's been "November" and I've had plenty of time for all the things that I still have on my "to do" list.  It's true, "time flies when you're having fun!!" 

(One very special part of it being December is that the Michigan "branch" of our family arrives home for the holidays in just 17 days!) Oh, how I miss these two little guys...and their Mommy and Daddy.

We will have all three of our children, and their families, HOME with us for Christmas this year.  It doesn't happen nearly as often as we would like, but we will savor every single second!  And, it starts 17 days from today.  This Mom/Nana cannot wait!
