Holiday Hodge-podge

16 days to Christmas. 16!  I'm not ready, of course.  I'm just not in the mood.  Perhaps I was more traumatized by last year's Christmas light fiasco than I thought.   Hmmmm.....never did get that pre-lit tree!  Maybe that explains the procrastination.  No tree.  No wreath.  I did manage to get the Advent calendar out for the kids.  The Girl can never remember how to say "Advent."  I think she called it the convent calendar once.  But motivated or not, I will find my holiday spirit.  I will.....tomorrow.

Quick update since I have been MIA for a while:

Thanksgiving was good.  It is my favorite holiday; and I do have a lot to be thankful for.  There are of course the serious things (family, friends, etc), but let's not forget to be thankful for pie.  I LOVE pie.  I made 5.  I gave two of them to the crew at the local coffee house who had to work on Thanksgiving.  I took the rest to the in-laws.  I married into the right family.  We ended up with one pie per person.  And I came home with 3.  Of course my fondness for pie may be linked to the fact that pumpkin pie is one of the few foods The Boy likes.  And it has pumpkin, milk and eggs in it.  Its practically health food.  Yes, I'm channeling Bill Cosby here.

The Munchkins both participated in separate Thanksgiving shows at their school.  The Boy said he didn't want me to come to  his (he never does!).  But that meant I could go to The Girl's program without feeling conflicted.  As per usual, I managed to NOT get it on tape.  But I did get pictures.  Check out their awesome pilgrim costumes.

I made those.  NO, really, I did!

The Boy scored major bonus points with DH because he was overjoyed to see him at his show.  Of course, then he asked Steve where I was {sigh}.  One of these days they'll perfect that cloning thing and I'll be all set.

And on a totally unrelated note, I still have a major crush on Timothy Hutton.  However, I was relieved to find out I'm not the only one.  And I think that is much more appropriate than having a crush an appreciation for the hottie at the coffee house who is young enough to be my son.

Now I MUST go do some Christmas shopping.  Cheers!
