Today is the Day!

We're having a unusually early Christmas this year,
but with 8 kids, 5 spouses and 9 grandkids
all having different schedules this was the day that
worked out to have everyone over for Christmas.
I have so much to do today.

Clean (I really need an elf!!),
cook (a few of the kids favorite things:
beef stroganoff, broccoli soup, and cheesecake),
finish sewing (I'm still not done with a few gifts)
and then wrap everything.

So wish me luck,
have a great day
I'd better go get busy!

We are still having Christmas with the 3 little ones on Christmas day,
cause you know,
Santa can't come this early
and when we go to Kansas we're having
Christmas with my parents and siblings.

Hi, just visiting after finding your blog mentioned on Kissed By An Angel's site. I love visiting new blogs, meeting new people but I can see today isn't the best of times with you being so busy. Anyway, nice to meet you, have fun and if you ever find that elf could you send him onto to me.
