“It just doesn’t feel right; it feels bendable”

That was Michael this morning lamenting over his bowl of cocoa crispies that got soggy in the milk. I know you where thinking it was something else! Shame on you!!

Guess what? It’s Christmas time. Actually it’s only 1 day and 25 hours away!! I guess that’s technically 2 days and 1 hour away, but who’s counting? Can you believe it?? I can’t. I haven’t done any Christmas shopping either! I think I may just skip presents this year. It wouldn’t be that awful would it? Ok, well maybe just a few presents. Not sure when I’ll go do that though. Maybe tomorrow along with all the other slackers. Just got word that it’s supposed to snow tomorrow. Great. I need to drive around and buy gifts and it’s supposed to snow. Wonderful.

We’ve been so busy lately with home improvements that we poured all our time, money and effort into the endeavor. Don’t get me wrong, it was totally worth it! Our kitchen looks divine!! We were able to fix the lights, paint, and put down new tile on the floor. All we have left is the mouldings and drawer fronts. I may not put any doors back on at all. I like it open.

Here is the finished product.

We really love it. The rest of the house got a good dose of dusting and vacuuming. Lots of things were cleared out over the last 6 months. We still have more purging to do, since 6 people live under one roof. That’s a lot of things if you aren’t careful. And let me tell you, we love stuff. Who doesn’t?

My family is in town for the holidays and I am so excited!! It’s been a lot of fun and laughing so far. Lots of yummy food and hanging out around the kitchen table. We are even going to have a family talent show/pageant! I think I may need to empty my bladder before the festivities start. It’s been brought to my attention that my husbands only talent is to broadcast our festivities on the world wide web. Umm….I don’t think so. We’ll see if that really happens. I think Jon likes being married and sleeping in our bed together.

I’m too busy eating and making lists of fun things to do to blog anymore…and actually I’m tired and ready for bed. So go on…get outta here…skedaddle!

Merry Christmas to each and every one of you. I pray God’s peace on you and your family this Christmas day and may He continue to bless you into the New Year.
