Barrelling through the Holidays....

The toy catalogues are in abundance in our house as the mailman brings at least one a day. I had the girls sit down the other day and look through those as well as the sale ads to make a list we could send to the Grandparents. It is actually quite fun to go through them with the girls with Audrey pretty much pointing to everything saying, "I want that." But I am sure Ray and I could wrap up a cereal box and give it to her for Christmas, and she would scream in delight.

Next week, we are actually going to have Thanksgiving Dinner with friends of ours from Virginia. We are still going to Myrtle for the holiday, but our friend's Mom lives in Myrtle as well, so we are going to be there on Thanksgiving Day. We absolutely refuse to drive to Virginia for Thanksgiving since the first year we were in North Carolina it took us 10 hours to get there when it is normally only about a 3 to 4 hour drive. Not fun. Sorry Family.

I am also going to run a 5K on Thanksgiving Day which absolutely gives me the right to eat more at dinner. I was going to run a 5K this weekend as well with a neighbor, but since the weather has turned unbelievably cold, we aren't doing it (that and registration closed last night and neither of us signed up for it).

Thursday, we get to go to Ashley's class and hear her sing some songs and eat the school's version of a turkey dinner. I am excited; Ray is a little worried about the lunch and says he can refuse to eat it if he wants. I told him I would make fun of him if he did that.

So after next week? It's Christmas shopping and decorating, cookie making and getting ready for the big day.

And I am not expecting any gift from Ray (nor my parents - do not buy Ray or I anything...), but I do have one wish item. A really big wish item. If you could have one wish item, what would yours be?

I would love to have a Dyson. Or a new wardrobe. Or a bigger tv. Or the short in my van fixed so I can listen to the radio and the automatic doors will work.

The only thing on my wish-list this year is a Wii fit.

CPA Mom said...

I have a kitchen aid mixer - not quite that fancy but still nice. You will love it!

I wish: Dyson, like Rachel. Handheld spot carpet cleaner. Wii Fit like That Chick.

itunes gift cards,

I could go on and on but what's the point - we don't get gifts for each other either!

it was a Christmas gift two years ago.

I don't have anything on my wish list... not that I can think of.

I'm also going home for Thanksgiving dinner party.

Kellie said...

I want someone--the husband, Santa, the parents, ANYONE--to lift some of the stress and sadness and worries I've had the last few months.

And a dyson.

And a spa day.

And a whole new wardrobe.

Other than that, I don't want anything ;)
