it's official


I
(aka Mrs Clause/Professional Procrastinator Parent (P.P.P.))
AM OFFICIALLY READY FOR
CHRISTMAS
...



thank goodness for the help of a little elf (my sister amanda)

....and a yummy gingerbread house and cookies that Santa shared with me.

Whether you were ready on the 3rd of December or 3 a.m. Chritmas Morn...I hope you can just sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor. I hope I'll be able to stay awake for it all.


Most of all....HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS....Where there is ROOM for HIM!









p.s.: "driving down the road, in a one HORSE open sleigh*.
* you can say oddessay in place of open sleigh....to go with the rhyming bit.
the kids will love it...thanks mom.
...and my living room is one step closer to being a barn!

p.s.s.- the virtual Christmas card.

So do you think there is any chance that the kids will sleep until
9 a.m. so I might get at least 6 hours of sleep?????

Oh my goodness, I love the van with the "one horse" on top. Priceless. Your Christmas card is stinking adorable! You are just so cute!

I love your Christmas card! I wanted to have the kids spell somehting but 'HO'was the only two-letter Christmas word I could think of and I didn't want to give anyone any wrong ideas about myself.

I'm always up too late on Christmas Eve. I've sworn I'll have all gifts wrapped by 12/15 next year because I'm always up late wrapping. I hope you got a good nap on Christmas Day! Those pictures of your children acting out the nativity are priceless! SO SWEET!

Cute christmas card! The van picture is funny. We really need to start acting out the Christmas story with our kids. The costume and props look so fun.

Cute Christmas card! Don't worry we were up with you into the wee hours of Christmas morning trying to get ready! Just part of the fun, right?

OK..CUTENESS OVERLOAD! I just got your cards in the mail and that xmas card is the cutest I've ever seen. And Justin in his cowboy boots...that is so Justin. Knobby knees and shorts...perfect. I love Patrick peeking out of the inn and the horse on the van! Chuckles galore. And yes, we need to get together. I've seriously picked up the phone several times to call you and some poop casastrophe or something has delayed me. We will be home the end of the first week of Jan. Call ya then! Love ya!
