It's Saturday Night.
I have been so busy trying to get it all together before we leave for our Christmas brouhaha that I haven't done a lot of live, up-to-date posting, instead letting 12-days-of-Posse-Christmas rule.
Even though I should be heading to bed at this very second, I would like to take a moment to do a little reporting.
Item 1: Cheery Disposition
I have been pretty cheery today. The girls and I made several homemade gifts while Jason put together our latest addition to the family-room remodel of 2009. We had a few parking miracles as we had to get some last-minute items for the food tonight and the projects.
Item 2: Rosy Cheeks
It started snowing today. A lot. The girls found themselves out playing in it and brought back cold hands and very pink cheeks. We rarely get snow like this in NYC before Christmas, so it was fun!
Item 3: Play Games, all sorts
We had our church party tonight. We danced, made gingerbread houses, ornaments and sat on Santa's lap. We also wore our ugly Christmas sweaters (and won best-dressed family award), which the girls insist are not ugly but, their FAVORITE!
Item 4: You must be kind
We had a lot of reminders about being kind today, as we are all feeling a bit cooped up, and ready to be on with our vacation already.
I have more than 2.5 days of STUFF to do and not enough time to do it, because I booked a job on Monday. Hurray! It's a little print job for Babies R Us, and I am not wrangling, which will be a nice break.
Here are the cupcake stands that we worked on today for teacher gifts:
