It’s 1:20 p.m. and we have one batch of cookies done. We have two Christmas trees up. We have partial decorations up. We have cats who are happy we are home but unhappy with the chaos (note to self: next time we go on vacation, FREDDIE is going in the kennel, too).
Kids have stayed out of the way for the most part – they had fun loading up their tree with ornaments. They crack me up though because they tend to load up one branch with 3-4 ornaments and the rest of the tree is bare. And they insist on having “sides” – so when CootieBoy encroaches on CootieGirl tree territory she gets very much up in arms. “No, CB, stay on YOUR side. This side is MMMMIIIIINNNNINE!!!!!”
After lunch I’ll tackle a batch of cookies from my list, and while they are baking I’ll continue with the decorations. But so far, so good. Can’t believe it’s only 1:20 p.m.!
