When Did This Happen?

Probably not the best picture of our Christmas tree with the sun coming in like that, but it will have to do for now.

Tonight finds me searching the house frantically looking for a paper bag to breath into to help my hyperventilating. Did everyone else know that tomorrow is Christmas Eve? How did this sneak up on me?

I still have Christmas cards sitting on my desk waiting to walk themselves to the mailbox.

I still have a small handful of presents left to wrap.

I just this morning found my favorite Christmas CD stashed in a CD book in the minivan.

If Christmas is this week, than that means the end of 2008 is next week.


I haven't lost those last 10 pounds I swore I'd lose this year.

I haven't finished unpacking the last room in the house.

Can we have a do-over? Or at least slow things down just a little bit tomorrow?

I'm predicting a day full of hot cocoa, home movies and sugar cookies tomorrow. Those pesky Christmas cards will get done sometime before next year, and I'm sure everything else will fall into place in their own timeline.

So if you haven't gotten a Christmas card from us yet this year, look for it some time in January. By then it will be 2009 and maybe I can get away with saying I'm just early for the next Christmas! :)

You are so fun to read :) What a hoot! Yeah, I know what you mean about Christmas sneaking up. I think it's been a busy year for you. I really hope you get to do exactly what you plan tomorrow. Have a blessed Christmas Eve, can't wait till I get your card (next year :)

The deep freeze that hit our city and the ton of snow that followed put everyones focus more on the storm around here and before we knew it christmas has snuck up on us too. I did get the gifts wrapped tonight and the cards went out a few days ago but it sure has been nip and tuck.

Have a merry christmas.

It's crazy, huh??? At least you GOT Christmas cards to send out...I went MIA in that department this year. :)

Hope it all comes together...I am sure it will be picture perfect!

How cool to have a warm sunny Christmas. You won't be going to Christmas Eve service in snowboots and a skirt this year will you? I hope you guys have a nice, quite family Christmas.
