I Got It Goin' On...

No I am not bragging but I happened to have a very successful week last week. We trimmed the tree...check! Hung the stockings...check! Decorated the front porch...check! And as if that weren't enough the kids sat for their Christmas card picture (taken by yours truly)...check! Whew! A friend of mine and myself took 4 giddy little "tweens" to see Twilight (yes, I have a crush on Edward too)...check! All that and I put in a 40 hr. work week at my new job! Ok so I couldn't even tell you my name but I got the list I had for myself cut in half (thanks to an incredible man I call husband). Hope you are all having a ball decorating for the holidays. Paula...that's my name...I almost forgot!

It's Coming...I Can Feel It!

The air has turned crisp here in Oklahoma, the foliage seems to have been short lived, the toy commercials have taken over, and my children have been working on their lists. That can only mean one thing, I better get prepared because Christmas will be here in a flash. I have been working on my front porch decor and have all my interior decorating done except for the tree, we will trim the tree this weekend. We make finger foods, have eggnog, and listen to holiday music while the tree gets bejeweled. When the tree is finished we toast it with a glass of "the nog" then settle in for our annual Family Christmas movie.....National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. My dad always made Christmas such an event when I was growing up and I hope that I have passed that along to my children. What kind of customs do you have when you trim your tree? I'd love to hear about them. Have a great day! Paula
