Merry Almost Christmas!

Ok, first off, I just wanna let you guys know that we did indeed put up our tree on Saturday and it went great. No worms. I had that tree boxed up so tight that there weren't any critters at all in it, and it's been sitting in the garage all year. Phew! That was a big load off, for sure.

Also, I feel like I should come clean. You know how I love being prepared and how I started my Christmas cards & projects in, like, September? Well, it is officially one week before Christmas (ugh! it always takes me at least 3 times to spell Christmas right! -Crh, no, Chrit, no...argh!) anyways, and I have not finished my C-day (ha!) shopping. Whaaaat? I know, right? Clearly I cannot be put in charge of the bigger things like getting presents for our children. I've done a lot, but it's the teenager in the house. I was stumped until this week, and now I've got the ideas, I just have to venture out into the wild with all the rabid (no, not you!) shoppers, looking for those last minute deals. Look, I wasn't holding out for the deals, I was trying to get some ideas. Of course, if I see a crazy awesome deal on something and there's only one left and it's between me & one of those previously mentioned rabid shoppers, I'm not afraid of a little smackdown to get my gift. Ha. Kidding. mostly. Tis the season, joy to the world and all that jazz.

This looks like a mischievous little cat! How cute! As for having a teenager making things difficult? Nawwww. That would never happen. Did I struggle with a gift for the teenager? Nawwww. The hard-to-buy-for son-in-law was easier!

I have TWO teenage boys to buy for...and STILL have no ideas what to buy.

The card is truly adorable. Love the color.

Thanks for the posting Mint, I love to see new stuff. I actually think I might be done with Christmas shopping and cards - I don't have a teenager yet, next Christmas (aaahh)
