I'm crossing things off my list...

Presents are finally getting wrapped, cookies are made for a cookie exchange tonight, lists are made for next week's cooking extravaganza (we do an appetizer spread for Christmas Eve, and I love it, appetizers are my favorite), final presents will hopefully be purchased today. I finally feel like I am getting somewhere.

And Ashley comes home tomorrow...she had been in Virginia all week visiting the Grandparents. While she I am sure has had fun, I have missed her tremendously. I told her before she left not to grow while she was gone, and when I talked to her yesterday, she told me she thinks she has grown. Which I am sure she has - she has been eating non-stop lately, and has been complaining of pain in her legs. I never experienced "growing pains" when I was a kid, but Ray says he vividly remembers them. This kid is going to be taller than me before she's in high school.

Audrey has of course loved the only child status she has had. If you ask her if she misses her sister, you will get an emphatic "No". I am sure she has, but all the Mommy and Daddy time she has received has been good for her. She never got to be the only child, and every chance she gets, she takes full advantage of it.

I think all of my gifts are wrapped and ready to go but my Christmas cards are sitting here in a stack waiting for some attention. I'm doing pretty well this year compared to last year, so that's good, but really it doesn't matter. I'm still stressed and tired and worried about getting everything done on time. Not to mention a birthday celebration thrown into the mix makes things just that much more exciting!

I think it's great that you can send Ashley away for a week to visit grandparents so that you have one on one time with Audrey. Maybe I'll try that one of these years....

Hi Amy, thankyou so much for my cute ornament! My Stylin' Snowgirl will look great on my tree, i picked it up from the post office this morning and i love it! She is so cool with her handbag, it suits me perfectly, thanks for sending it so far too! It will bring a bit of snow and cool weather to our really hot summer here in Oz, it's going to be around 100 degrees today!

the ornament your received is absolutely gorgeous too!

Merry Christmas!

You're way ahead of me. I have loads of wrapping to do, and the cards aren't out yet, either.
