** 4th post of the night - to read Day 21 go here, to read Days 19 & 20 go here, and to read Day 18 go here. Thanks! **
Today was a day to get all that last minute Christmas shopping done. Buy the turkey, the potatoes, the yams, the ingredients for those yummy Land of Nod cinnamon buns, the Wife Saver and the Christmas crackers for the table.
It was a day for Grandma and Grandpa Day to drop off presents. Suddenly our tree is BURIED!! Every year we say we've got to buy less and yet somehow that never seems to happen!
Today the girls got letters from Santa.
Form letters but they understood that Santa is a bit too busy right now to write each letter personally. But he did sign them himself which was pretty exciting!
Today the girls made something special for Grandpa but I can't show that til after Christmas. Wouldn't want to ruin the surprise and all!!
Here it is ... Day 22:
I decided to include my shopping list and receipt on the main page as that was really my main activity today. Greg took some vacation time in the afternoon to allow me to get last minute shopping done plus the grocery shopping for Christmas Day. We were going to host his parents, his sister and her family, and a cousin of his plus his family - 15 in all. Only 14 were eating solid food though!! Zoe's still taking mostly breast milk! Can't help her out there any more - thank goodness!
On the back of the main page I made a pocket out of some Dear Lizzy patterned paper and tucked all 3 letters from Santa in them. LC's didn't arrive until the 24th but I decided to include it here to have them all in one spot.
Okay, I was hoping to get Day 23 done tonight too but it's pretty late so I'll leave that for tomorrow.
Good night. Hope you've enjoyed these installments!!
