Xmas Checklist



  • Spend hours, if not days, decorating the house? Check!


 
my sister's tree (mine looks like it was decorated by an 8-year-old... which it was)


(also her table setting)



  • Obsess about what to get for whom? Check!
  • Brave the crowds to buy the last remaining Xmas p-j's in the correct size? Check!
  • Kill a small forest to wrap said presents? Check!
  • Obligatory Xmas family gathering? Check! (For bonus points, see the little Miss Em's face light up like a 1000-watts? Check!)


    this one's too big,
    this one's too small,
    this one's JUST right!











  • Xmas morning with the hyper 8-year-old who's been counting days, hours, and minutes to said morning? Check!
  • Give the nice gift(s) to husband to get back the usual "Sorry, I couldn't find anything for you"? Check!
  • Keep Douggy away from the massive pile of torn Xmas wrapping? Check! (Get him not to take off the Santa shirt? Check... for a few minutes anyway)


  • Make pancakes in the shape of a snowman, ornament, Xmas tree, and a blob remotely resembling an elf? Check!
  • Find something like this in the Xmas stocking?





Check :)

What was on your Xmas checklist?

It's the perfect checklist! On my mine was drink enough not to get annoyed when my Mom starts to take over the kitchen ;)

Likewise, Megan. Merry Merry and Ho Ho Ho!

VV: She can come and take over my kitchen any day, as long as she brings you along. Of course, I will chill the Veuve Cliquot beforehand, just in case :)

LOL Karen. He just freezes whenever we make him wear something. He won't move an inch. Then he disappears and when he's back, it's off... magic :)
