As long as there's Christmas

The tree is up and the stockings are hung. I still need to connect the bulbs to my village, but it's finally looking like Christmas around here.  I'll try to get some pics up this week.

I heard this song while watching Beauty and the Beast Enchanted Christmas and enjoyed it. Have a listen.

If you celebrate the holiday, how are you doing with your Christmas preparations?

Here's my holiday To Do list:
1.  Write Christmas letter
2.  Address Christmas Card envelopes
3.  Insert card and letter
4.  Order pictures to go in 2008 calendars for family members
5.  Buy Christmas Card stamps
6.  Plug in village lights
7.  Wrap gifts
8.  Bake cookies
9.  Make fudge
10.  Make a gingerbread house
11.  Visit Zoolights
12.  Visit the Grotto to see the Festival of Lights
13.  Drive around Portland International Raceway to see lights
14.  Buy remaining presents
15.  Mail presents to friends and family who live far away

At least half of those items really should be done this week!  We'll see how I do considering I  have a regular To Do List that's twice that long.

Have a wonderful Monday!

Hi, I am so glad to see someone has a list as long as mine! Cindi

I just have baking to do. I'm doing ecards this year because I honestly don't have the money for cards and postage.

Melissa said...

Haha, Cindi! It's nice to know you aren't the only one, isn't it?

Although I haven't crossed anything off my Christmas To Do list, I managed to cross several items off my normal To Do list this morning. That felt so good!

Oh, Bailey. I wish I only had baking. Well, that and eating bake goods :-) Ecards are a smart idea. I do the photo cards from Costco so they aren't so expensive.

I have cards to mail and maybe some baking. I REALLY need to wrap gifts, but right now the biggest thing is decorating the tree. *g*

Have a great day and good luck with your list!

Marianne Arkins said...

That's to be done by NEXT year, right?

Dru said...

Wow, that is a lot on your list.

I'm done with everything except I was to bake some cookies.

I hope you had a good Monday.

I love it when I cross things off my list!!
