"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!" We got a cold front in North TX and this morning there was snow/ice on my sons' cars. And it's 32 degrees. Winter! You know, for me, it just cannot seem like Christmas when it's 70 outside.

I had a great weekend and now it's back to work. Not sure what tonight at home holds. Finished my holiday baking yesterday. May whip up some more candy - who knows. Also, last night, I printed out all of my 11/28-12/9 photos and slipped them into my PL pockets.

So, I am one happy elf!

How are you doing in your corner of the world? Hope today is great!

It's 28 here this morning - definitely much colder than yesterday! I was beginning to think that we were going to have a pool party for Christmas.

Busy week in our house this week - work and home. I'm not sure what pics will get taken, might have to fudge a bit.

Catching up on notes for a few days:

6 - Our dog w/ Santa
7 - Booked a vacation to Mexico in a couple of months - can't think about anything else . Journal about how that's our gift to each other this year.
8 - Journal about how I'm not in a shopping mood (went to Toys r Us, and my gosh, what is wrong with people?!?! There was certainly nothing magical about that shopping experience).
9 - More decorations
10 - Not sure, I'm going to have to come up with some filler. I'll end up with something.

Still on my trip to work. Left for daycare drop off 1 hr 40 minutes ago....my 20 minute bus ride has already doubled and here I sit.

So the adventure of getting to and from work today may become part of my page. When it takes this long to get in, I wonder why I bother going in.

I am a project lifer. That's why I am taking so many pictures.....

We are having lots of rain and storms here today and the weather is starting to cool down. It also doesn't feel like Christmas to me when the temp is 75 so maybe with the cooler weather here it will feel more like Christmas! My pic of the day will probably be the girls decorating their huge gingerbread man cookie/cakes tonight!

Mine is probably going to turn into the drive today. It only took me 45 versus my usual 35-30, so not bad at all. But we are still missing quite a few people, some being 2+ hours late

Well it is 72 in Florida. It doesn't feel like x- mas at all. We been here for close to 10 years and I still can't get use to it. I really would like to go to NYC for the weekend with the kids just to get that holiday feeling.
As far as my picture today is easy, my dd sleeping. The nutcracker is finally over and she is exhausted. I kept her home from school and after dropping off my ds I put her right to bed and she is still sleeping from 8:00 a.m. Now I can fully focus on "the list".

Have a jolly one

Playing catch-up today after a very busy long weekend. Putting pages together today for:

7th - my birthday and the kids visit with Santa
8th - our older son's 3rd birthday party
9th - putting up the tree

Today I have a filler photo of our Christmas card mailing, including stamps and washi tape I used but, I may do an ornament craft with the kids and do that instead.

ETA: Craft happened so, the card pic will hold til tomorrow

It's in the 70s here, but we have rain then cold (for us)weather coming.

My page today will probably be a picture with dd, maybe in front of tree . She is going to come eat with us. She is in middle of finals and trying to get sick. Need to make her some soup or something, hopefully she can keep from getting sick before her last final on Wednesday.

That cold front found its way here! Storms this morning now it's COOOLD! Goodbye 70 degrees !!
So today I was thinking of getting my three babies to each color a Christmas tree (8x8) and glue it to some cardstock. Snap a pic of them coloring and add it all to my DD!

Today mine will probably be a journal entry about a Christmas memory. All I've done today is work and I can't wait to get home and PJ up.
