    and when the cold front hits on Sunday, I've got everything ready to light a match in the fireplace.

    Got the major gifts covered (bought) for 5 of the 7 kids. So much shopping left to do.

    Oh... and I'm loving the leftovers from yesterday.

    I have put up two trees today, hung garland and white lights on anything that would hold still, and am still dragging things up from storage. I have one more tree, a big one, to go up in the great room. The stockings are 'about to be hung' by the electronic-ignite-gas-fireplace (just doesn't have the same ring, does it?) with care.
    It's going to look like Christmas exploded at my house by this time tomorrow.

    I like the way it looks out front... in fact we had some friends come over earlier and they were surprised to see me out laying on the fresh cut green grass in the front yard admiring the lights on the house and around all the bushes etc...

    I love Phoenix this time of year.

    Quote:I was stomping my boots into the duck's water this morning to break up 1/4" of ICE, Mahonri. It will be about 30 degrees again tonight, and old man winter just keeps coming closer and closer until soon he's going to drop a blanket of the white stuff on us. Won't my chickens have their little beaks out of joint when that occurs....
    No fair rubbing in the laying in the grass in the nice weather in AZ. I'm going to UPS you some snow....

    Fun!

    We will be doing our decorating tomorrow. DH worked today, so I went and picked up the tree so it will be ready to bring in the house tomorrow. I also bought lots of snack foods so we can decorate, listen to Christmas music, decorate our gingerbread house, and play some games! [​IMG]
