Outside My Window... cold, cold, cold. But dry. And that is an improvement.
I am listening to... the sound of the movie Christmas Vacation, which is on as I type. That movie still makes me laugh. When Aunt Bethany wraps up that cat and Clark is holding it and the package is moving all around... good film moment there.
I am wearing... a gray and white argyle patterned sweater and black pants. Both from Old Navy. Both picked up on sale earlier this fall.
I am thankful... for the clothes and the food and the roof over our head.
I am pondering... if there can be such a thing as too much family togetherness? :)
I am reading... On Strike For Christmas. A cute little book that's perfect for this time of year about a group of moms who decide to simply not do Christmas so their families will appreciate the lengths they go to to pull off the Christmas they take for granted. Great light reading.
From the kitchen... Gingerbread cookies with daddy, cut out Christmas cookies with homemade icing with mommy, eggnog bread
I am creating... a menu for this week. What should we have for Christmas Eve? I was going to do a turkey but am now thinking... no.
I am thinking... about my answers to "the question" my friend Karen Ehman wrote about in her blog post today.
I am going... to try to relax and enjoy this week.
Around the house... Christmas is everywhere, in every room.
One of my favorite things... doing the fun little things with the kids in the time leading up to Christmas. Saturday we went to a class and decorated cookies and cakes. Sunday we visited with Santa at Starbucks and enjoyed free hot chocolate for the kids.
A picture thought I am sharing... Christmas at Starbucks with a visit from Santa!
