Merry Christmas!!!

Well this is the tree...not many presents, but I am working on that. I can't decide what to wrap and what to make Santa. As you know, kids don't get it when there aren't 20 presents each under the tree so deciding what to do has been kind of difficult. Mom read somewhere on one of the 300 blogs she reads a day that children should get 5 presents a year from Santa so they don't set their expectations too high. With that being said, there are some presents I simply don't want to wrap or have no way of wrapping and teaching the lesson gets kind of hard.

The other pictures are from the Christmas party I had Saturday night. Since I still haven't mastered how to get them to post after each paragraph you will have to scroll back up. HA! What is the deal...I feel like I need to pass the bar exam to post on my blog! We had a lot of fun. Good food, great friends(about 8 couples), and a little game of Dirty Santa. I think we will make it a tradition. If any of you would like to come next year, please sign up below :) You won't want to miss it...

I also put a picture of the tile job my friend Chad did in the kitchen. He does excellent work! Keep in mind there was white formica (sp) before. Speaking of, I'll put a before picture. It's truly amazing. It's no granite, but it's MY granite!

I hope you all have a great holiday you all!

Everything looks great BS, as usual. You do have your mother's touch for decorating. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

You too, Mrs Granger! I sure can't wait to see you again. Merry Christmas!

And Becky you are too funny! The problem with me and decorating is that I keep buying and buying and run out of places to put it.

Merry Christmas!

I forgot to ask where you got the stockings? Mom has those for T & MM. I've searced the world over and found one similar, but it's all green, and I don't like it as much.
