Well that big ol' second storm fizzled right out last night-- and I'm very glad it did. Today was all blue sky kinda happy. It's my birthday today. I goofed off... ignored a giant pile of laundry... ran errands... took myself out to lunch... and shopped for a few Christmas decorations.
We'll officially celebrate next weekend when Mike gets home.
I think I generally like being in my forties now.
The only thing that would make the forty-decade better would be a sixteen-year olds' metabolism... and skin.
The weekend was hectic, getting Mike ready to go, cleaning up from the storm, and we also did a heighborhood food pantry drive.
But Saturday night we stopped and made time for the kids to make their gingerbread house
Jesse said, "how does Buddy do it and make it look so easy?".
They are big fans of the tv show, cake boss.
And this is your expression when you think your sister is hogging the decorating...
She's serious about this stuff... she wants to be a baker when she grow up.
And a ballerina :)
(Apparently, cleaning it was not on the Christmas to do list).
And decorated her cupcake tree.
I've just started decorating.
The santa collection is out.
We have an artificial tree in the living room up but not decorated
and a real tree to buy this weekend.
I'm kinda slow this year... but it will get done.
I refuse to panic :)
Tonight we are going to Frank's house for dinner ;)
It's fun to have grown-up kids (and their pets) too.
Have you decorated yet?
