It's almost here...


I swear the pre-Christmas period gets crazier and crazier! I feel like I've been going flat out, but I don't think I've been doing very much.

The last week and a half I've had annual leave and basically I've been spending the time with Chickie and trying to get my Christmas shopping done. I finally got the shopping done, but I have a sinking feeling I didn't post things away in time. I'm not game to inquire with my family just in case they didn't make it in time. I'll just sit here, cross my fingers and hope like crazy they made it!

Christmas, for us this year, will be relatively quiet - J's family for lunch. Boxing day we're going for a picnic in the Botanical Gardens and then the day after we'll visit J's Grandmother. Next year I'll have to be more organised as we're most likely going to spend Christmas with my Mum and Dad (3 states away!). I hope I can manage it hehehe.

Well, at the moment all is sorted and Chickie is in bed awaiting a visit from a certain jolly fat fellow. Oh and by awaiting, I mean he's laying in bed staring out the window into the sky. I can't seem to convince him that the quicker he falls asleep, the quicker Santa (and Christmas day) will be here. I'd guess this is happening all over though!

I hope you and yours have a very happy Christmas and holiday season. May 2009 bring all the joy and happiness you could wish for.

Merry Christmas. J.T. got up twice. He asked how he was expected to ever go to sleep with all the excitement of the evening! SANTA is coming, you know!

Merry Christmas, hope Chickie fell asleep eventually. WE were up til midnight doing the Santa and of course the kids woke at 6am. which is quite respectable actually I heard of some kids waking before 5!
