Well, I hope you all have a great weekend. I will talk to you all tomorrow. God Bless!

Just watching Christmas music videos On Demand right now, I love all this holiday stuff coming on TV now, you should see my DVR all primed and ready to record the good stuff, I recorded The Night They Saved Christmas Last Night, I saw that for the first time 2 years ago and really liked it. Too bad it is not available on DVD unless you want to shell out a small fortune.

I must head to bed now.

Good night all.
OMG! I forget to buy a turkey today!
I guess I have to run out early monday morning!
Hope you got some good rest Xmas! =)

Elizabeth's first Nutcracker performance was last night, and it was BRILLIANT!! She had the best time, and has already been talking to the people who manage the show about a larger part next year...LOL!

Not only was it my first Nutcraker, it was my first ballet, and I loved it! Well, except for the guy in the tights. Get some shorts on, dude!

Tonight, the entire family is coming, then the last performance is Sunday afternoon. They are meeting us at a restaurant to surprise her after the last show. Nancy and I had a bouquet of flowers last night, and I thought she was going to cry. LOL

I hope y'all have a great day!
Congratulations to Elizabeth. I wish I could see her! ♥

Ho ho ho its the weekend! Santa Claus is coming to the mall today. I think I get more excited to see him then the kids! Watched Christmas Vacation the other night. Oh that is a good holiday movie. More and more lights are going up on houses this year. I cant seem to find a light up plastic waist high Santa. I think they have been replaced with all the blow up air things. Wish I could find one! Anyone know of a place in London Ontario that is selling them? My friend got William a Charlie Brown nativity set! AND from the HOBBY LOBBY! We don't have one in Canada so I was very happy to hear that's where she got it from! Well back up stairs I go! Coffee in hand. OH for those Londoners, 103.9 More FM is now 24/7 Christmas music. And as always MMCR is around 24/7 365! Christmas music OVERLOAD! hah. Have a wonderful Christmas weekend. I cant believe the season is here!
I wish Santa Claus would come to our mall.
Why haven't we this tradition?
YOU have a wonderful day Undrtakr! =)


Britt:
Thinking of you!♥

Good evening dear Christmas community! I hope you had (or yet having) a good Saturday! :] Mine was pretty odd because I woke up around 5 o'clock in the morning. I don't know why but I just couldn't sleep any longer. ^^ I took a glass of water and I was reading some magazines until 8 o'clock, and then I felt sleepy. I couldn't go back to sleep at 8 in the morning. That would have been too ridiculous. Anyway, I somehow managed to stay awake until 10 and I went to the town centre. I spent about 4 hours walking in different book shops and I must say I was happy and frustrated at the same time. Happy because there were so many Christmas novels displayed on the shelfs, and sad because I couldn't purchase them all. ^^ But I sweared to myself that someday I will have a huge library at my own place with huge collection of lovely Christmas novels and fictions. I planned yesterday to do some reading today related to my studies but I had my lunch after I came back home and then started doing some cross-stitching of Christmas present for my godparents. Heh. ^^

One day maybe you'll have that library. Nothing beats a room full of books! Nothing like a cozy reading space! Hope you enjoy whatever you're currently reading.

santahat Christmas Is Everywhere

Hello everyone. Hope your weekend is going good. We took the kids to them all today as Mrs. Claus was there reading stories and passing out milk and cookies. Then Santa came in for his first appearance and you would have thought a rock star came in that place. My daughter and the other kids went crazy, clapping and waving...jumping up and down. It was cute. My son says he's too old for that now, but he still likes it all more than he admits.
Christmas movies are running on several stations today. Just watched "Jingle All the Way" with my son.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
