Good Morning....I have my coffee....its not very pretty here this morning. Madison just got on the bus.....Miller is playing..so I'm going to try to blog a little. I'm listening to Christmas Music......and looking at my tree...all the pretty lights. I love this time of year. The season is so wonderful. I'm staying home today and doing some cleaning. I'm going to make some candy....has anyone started making candy yet? I may make some fudge or Chocolate Covered Peanuts....yummy.

Yesterday was picture day for Miller...and well, he is such a serious child. Out of 30 shots...he smiled maybe twice....yes....twice. It was 2 hours of smile baby...me jumping around the room like an idiot...and making crazy faces...just for him to look at me and not smile. That's okay.....he is still my sweet bundle of JOY! Tomorrow is his birthday...the BIG ONE!!!! I have a cake ordered and balloons ordered. Presents are wrapped. I still cant believe its been a year since we went in to have him. Crazy how your life goes so fast. I'll sit in the floor and play with him and think I need to be treasuring this...and I do....then he is one. Next I will be saying he is two. Madison is 9 and I cant even figure out where those years went.

Christmas is only 27 days away ladies......have you got your shopping done? Mine is almost done. Made your menu's yet?

I hope you all have a great Tuesday......

My goal is to finish my shopping by the end of next week. Then I can focus on what I need to do to get ready to have Christmas here...which is a lot! Through the course of the day and lunch and dinner we will have about 30 people here!

Emily was very serious, too! she hardly ever smiled for pictures when she was little! I hope his birthday goes well! Are you going to let him "play" in his cake? I love those pictures!

Wow, that's a beautiful picture. When I first saw it I thought it was your house!

You're getting me in the mood to go do some Christmas baking!

It sure doesn't take long for them to grow up right before your eyes, does it? My first was like that. She was so serious and intense we had to practically stand on our heads to get her to crack a smile!

Well, your baby was born on my wedding anniversary. Twenty-eight years tomorrow! Happy Birthday Miller.

No, I don't have my Christmas shopping done. But I hope to soon. With a list, it goes fairly quickly.

I got your email about the appetizers. I have the next few days to myself to get some catching up done so I'll see what I can come up with. I have quite a few really good appetizer recipes.

We're getting our first real snow today. It's been snowing all day and the temperature is predicted to go down to zero in the next forty-eight hours. How I love being able to stay inside my warm house on days like this!

Wow one year old already! Time does zoom right by us now, huh?

We're getting our tree this Sunday. I can't wait! I love to see the excitement in the girls' when its all done. Awww...

I'm almost done with shopping. I really want to have it all completed by this week, but Mister will most likely be the last one I buy for and that'll most likely carry into next month.

Hope you had a nice day home.
