I am now officially finished with my Christmas present making and wrapping (okay, except for ONE present that five of us are going to do together)!  I also got most of my part of Christmas dinner done!  πŸ™‚  We like to get that done ahead of time so we only have to heat it on Christmas day. It makes for a nice (sorta) relaxing Christmas day.  I guess, the "only" part I have to do still is baking three kinds of cookies (that I’ll do tomorrow)…..but the cookie dough is made!  

Something else that we need to do before Christmas is cleaning.  My goodness can boys make a mess of their toy box(es)!  Uh, yes…they do have two. Actually, they have a "toy-corner".

This is after. I didn’t think to take a before picture, but believe me, you could hardly walk in that corner before! And it is right beside the dining room table. So sometimes that makes for hard eating.   Both boys were very, very helpful with cleaning it up! They helped me through the entire process! 


Coming up (so stay tuned!):



Are you curious? Can you guess what this is for (not which person, it’s for me of course! )?
