Last night I finally finished my shopping. I never wait to the last minute but getting out shopping was challenging this year. Frank has been working so much overtime and you can't quite bring along the boys to buy their gifts!
I spent a few hours wrapping gifts and getting organized last night. By 10am this morning I had baked a cake, made breakfast and made about 5 batches of cookies. I just have to decorate the cookies by tomorrow. The boys "helped" with the cookies. Not sure why I even let them because it's a big ole mess but they love it so I figure I can suck it up.
Colin is finally feeling better today. And my fingers are crossed because so far Ciaran and Cormac have not become sick. I am hoping they can hold off until Friday or not even get sick.
I just can't wait until Christmas morning. To see the look on their faces is going to be so memorable. I can just imagine what they will say. Last year was fun but this year will be even more enjoyable. They are going to freak when they realize Santa brought them big boy bikes.
I forgot about some of the gifts I purchased for the boys a long time ago so when I went to the garage I realized they had quite a few more gifts. Bonus for the babes.
We played in our first snowfall of 2008. They LOVED it! Can you figure out who is who??? With hats and hoods you can't really tell.
The boys got up really early once this week. I put them all in my bed with a drink of milk. I was buying some time so I really didn't have to start the day yet.
We are off to my sister's house for the evening. Should be alot of fun. It's also my Dad's birthday so it's a double celebration. The boys helped make the icing for the cake and can't wait to share it with him.
I'll post some Christmas eve and Christmas photos later on.
