Its almost here........

I can't believe the month is almost over and I am so unprepared this year.  We have had a gazillion parties, and the house is decorated, but no gifts bought, no cards sent out (not happening) and no baked yumminess.  :(  But oh well, tis the life of a full time college student.  I have 2 finals tomorrow and 1 Friday then I'm done and will be able to have some fun.  I'm over feeling sorry for myself and ready to relax and enjoy what Christmas is all about, spending time with family and enjoying the excitement of the kids.




We have an extra short tree this year because the ceilings in this home are only 8 ft.  So we didn't use half of our ornaments.  And i wasn't feeling creative enough to find a place for them.  But i have to say i am in better spirits and have excepted the fact that i'm not on the ball, that it is okay, and we will still have a fabulous Christmas no matter what.  The kids don't really notice, so that is the most important thing, don't want to put a damper on their holiday spirits.  I even sat back this year and let them decorate the tree with out telling them where they can put the ornaments, it was kind of fun. 

I created this box using the Lily Bee Christmas town line to put on my front end table full of candy canes.

Check out the Lily Bee Blog for more details on how i created it!

One more thing, i'm really excited that Memory Works has asked me to be involved in creating projects with some of their new product coming out for CHA - also the Elementary line which is too die for - love the grungy feel.  I know your thinking where is she going to find the time.  But i will!  Here is the website for the Simple Stories program and how it can work.
So i will catch you later, off to run kids around to dance, piano, and a kid Christmas party at Grandma Hurds house tonight - she is so cute, every year she gets all the grandkids together and they watch a Christmas movie, eat good food and go Christmas caroling.  They always look forward too it.

Hugs

Not on the ball? You give yourself far too little credit! I have been very impressed at how well you have balanced all the different areas of your life.
Your Christmas will be wonderful!
