Stocking stuffer

I would love to find one of those in my stocking! How about you?

Our stockings are hung. Human stockings on the fireplace. Furbaby ones on the staircase. That way the animals can stick their paws through the railings and play with them! Plus there are just too many to all fit on the fireplace.

I came across an ornament from 1997. I'd had it made somewhere. I think a Christmas Bazaar at our church's school. There were four names on it: Tom, Melissa, Rocket and Spirit. How times have changed since then! Both family size as well as house size!

Today begins Christmas vacation. Hubby is home and off for the next two weeks. The kidlets still have to do lessons this week. (See Naughty post from yesterday if you want to know why.) Unfortunately my hope of a break isn't going to happen, but I'm hoping to get things done early and late so I can be with the family in between. Lots going on with cookie making, gingerbread house decorating, etc. I also realized I better start figuring out Christmas Cards. One year I sent New Year Cards. That may happen again. LOL!

Hope you have a nice Monday! Are you off or are you working?

I find it hard to get anything done when everyone is home. Which I have that problem now, hubby is home from work because he took vacation time and son is home from college and it seems all it get done is cooking and washing dishes. I did get the gifts wrapped yesterday. Would like to do some baking this week but who knows what will get done.

Cute pic. Not off yet, but my cousin is off for the whole week.

How is Chaos? I hear you on lessons this week. My kids have been slacking off for the past couple of weeks and it's hair-pulling stressful.
You make me want to bake! *g* We still have all regular activities this week and since Chris is teaching he won't have any time off until after the second week in January.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

The vet said if Chaos was blocked it would most likely show up today. My son took her out for a walk and so far everything is working normally so no blockage. Will see later how it's going. But for now she seems okay, but still a little off if you know what I mean. That is she looks as if she might still have a tummy ache.

Thanks for asking!

No days off for the rest of the year.

Hope Chaos is better. Will you still take her to the vet if she's still a little off?
