Amaze Me Monday #5

Merry Christmas Everyone!


I had a lovely holiday weekend with the family.  I pulled off a Christmas miracle and finished all my holiday shopping by Thursday.  How is that a miracle???  It is a miracle when you start your shopping the Thursday prior!  Yep, I totally add a good 10 years to myself for waiting so long! 

On Christmas Eve I put together a simple dinner for my parents.   We had nice meal and a watched a movie afterwards.    On Christmas morning the hubby got me up at 4:00 am!  I still had four large presents that need to be wrapped, stockings to stuff, and homemade cinnamon buns to make (a Christmas morning tradition).  The kids came stomping down the stairs a few hours later.  It would appear that I did well in my week of mad crazy shopping  because I had  three happy campers once everything was unwrapped!  Whew  Before heading over to my parents house, the hubby and I snuck in a quick nap!  It wasn’t longer than 20 minutes but it sure was enough to keep me from feeling like a zombie the rest of the day.  Today I packed up all the Christmas decorations. Now my house looks empty!  A good excuse to go shopping if I wasn’t so broke!!!

I trust that everyone had an equally wonderful time with their loved ones on this glorious holiday weekend. 

Now let’s party!!!
