Lets giggle & share the count down together!! What's left on your Christmas To Do List?

HoHoHo...Christmas Wishes to all my dear prim Friends out there in BlogLand...
If your anything like me a moment of sneaking into the computer and bringing up your blog so you can check out what everyone is doing to finish up the final touches of creating the perfect Christmas for our family's and Friends seems to take the edge off that huge To Do list we have staring  up at us!!
I thought it would be fun to take a minute to share some of the rush rush with each other I invite you to tell us what you've checked off your list and what is still making you run around in circles trying to get it all done in 2 days and still pull off the perfect Christmas!

My Christmas To Do list got all tangled up with the To Do list for filing for SSI & that mountian of papers from the Specialist I have to see December 30th and Janurary 19th. Oh yea we can't forget my new found slower then a 7 year itch body... sure makes it hard to get things done when the body is in slow gear and the brain is in high gear..or is that visa versa...I'm not sure I was up till 3 in the morning last night working on filling out some of those papers...That was after I wrapped some presents...Checked off the list

I finally checked off Make Chex Mix Tuesday...Oh yummy it sure did turn out great... I filled a big tin for myself...Merry Christmas from me to me!! Then I filled 20 more adorable tins I found at good will with chex Mix to give as gifts... My 8 yr old neice Hailey helped me make the Chex mix and she had a ball ....

I went to John & Laura's yesterday to clean... now there was a true example of my slower then a 7 ye itch body.. I can normally clean in two hours and have several hours to visit with them... Well it took me like 6 hours to clean.. but we were till able to visit..
I took over there Christmas Presents and put them under the tree so that is another To Do checked off the list... I gave them each one of there gifts Early.. John plays guitar in several bands and his dog is a Chawennie. I found this darling Christmas Taco Bell Dog playing a guitar so I got it for John...I though him and Laura were going to crack up laughing at this thing singing and playing the guitar!!
I gave Laura a beautiful vintage Quilt for her bed... It is beautiful and she just loved it...
Were planning on spending Christmas Day together opening the rest of our gifts....
I found a small bag of gifts under the rocker so I have to wrap them today...and I thought I was done...

I've got one last minute thing I have to do today... I've been elected to provide paper plates & cups for Christmas with my Brothers Family so got to run to town and pick those up today..

Christmas Eve is gona be a a rush..One of my foster Daughters has invited me to join her and the kids around Noon Christmas eve..I've never spent Christmas eve with her since she has grown up and was tickled she invited me to come by & celebrate with her and the kids....It will be good to see her and the kids its been years since I've seen all of them together...

Then at 4 I have Christmas with Brother Jim and all of our family...about 20 people will be there. It is Jason & Jessie's first christmas in there new house so they are hosting Christmas this year... Peg took all of our gifts over and snuck them in under the tree while they were gone last all we have to do is show up...I bet they were surprised when they got home last night and found the mountian of gifts around the tree...wish I could have seen there expression!!

When we are done at Jason & Jessie's we are coming back here..well to the house not my trailer and having Christmas with Jim, Peg, the kids & I... After that I'm not sure what is going on...but for sure it is going to be a fun whirlwind day of celebrating and sharing time with family and friends... Hopfully storing away lots of wonderful fun memories...

I've got gifts to carry in the house for the kids & I told Peggy I'd help her in the kitchen making cookies today so I guess I best get moving so we can check them off the to do list...

May your day remain calm with little rush rush in it...but rather giggles and fun moments as you finish up your to do list!!

Christmas Blessings


  1. Holy Moly...I'm tired just reading what your Christmas will be...but it all sounds like lots of fun!
    My list is short at the moment. Everything is finished except the stocking stuffers and groceries.
    Our 3 sons and their families will be here Christmas afternoon but up till then it will be rather quiet.
    Blessings Tonya...p.s. thanks so much for the lovely card!

  2. Tonya,
    It sounds like you'll be having a wonderful Christmas.
    I did not do much for Christmas this year. I only have 1 niece and I buy for her. I made my sister, brother and his wife (Amy from bumble bee lanes blog) a little something, but other than that I've just been stopping by other blog friends to see their decor.
    Going to my brothers Friday to see everyone~ it's a 3 hr drive if no accidents. We went up at Thanksgiving and it took us 5 hrs to get home because of an accident.
    I'm glad your able to push forward and try to enjoy the holiday. I keep you in my thoughts and prayers, hoping the drs will figure out whats gone wrong and give you relief.
    Your card came in the mail today and I was so touched that you thought of me. I got Linda's email with all the blogger addys, but I just can't open the darn thing. So, now I have your addy to add to my own list of friends.
    Well I best get off here, but I want to wish you a Very Merry Christmas and thank you for all the wonderful memories you've shared on your blog. I so enjoy reading them.
