a to-do list

The past few Mondays I have woken up intending to post a to-do list for the week.

Notice how that has not happened...


A list of things for this week :)

Finish Christmas cards
Complete wrapping
Vacuum whole house
Dust whole house
Rehang the 8 thousand ornaments the children have removed from the trees
Buy Christmas cookies
Pack for trip home (yeah!)

Lately I've found that a weekly list is better for me than a daily list, I have no problem keeping up with the laundry and the kitchen, but I really need a reminder for the other projects/tasks.

Are you an everyday list maker?

oh, sunday

We had a nice day.

Started by lighting the third candle on our Advent wreath.

Because it is "pink candle week" I might have forced encouraged everyone to wear red to mass...we looked very cohesive in our pew in the cry room.

We managed a family shopping trip to Target after church. I would not suggest this; the store was a zoo. Our outing was successful, because Hubs kept the boys occupied with popcorn (I'm sorry for the mess, Target employees) and then herded them into the car while I braved the checkout alone.

At some point today, #2 grabbed the remote and found...

do you see what i see?!
Gnome TV!!!
If you have U-verse, it's channel 1100, Christmas music and a gnome.
Oh yeah, and a cozy fire, too.

After naps we worked on our gingerbread house!
Okay, #1 and I worked on the house, Hubs had camcorder/camera duty and #2 ate candy...lots of candy.

And then after we put the boys to bed, we enjoyed our Christmas lights.

yep, there is totally a stand out on the big tree...oh well!

I love this time of year :)

Want to guess what this is?
