It is that time of year for us. We are busy, but enjoyably so. Our Christmas performance is over. (I have since taken the practice cd out of the car and burned it.) Our shopping is almost all done. All of the presents are wrapped. The pre-Christmas parties are all finished. I even mailed out the Christmas cards this year. (Hopefully in time.)
The rest of this week will be spent cleaning the house, baking cookies, and celebrating our anniversary on Friday. I will also have fun keeping Ransom away from the presents. He has given up taking the ornaments off the tree; they are all too high for him now. He has moved on to ripping the bows off of the gifts.
On a side note, our tree once again came from Salem, Oregon (courtesy of Lowe's.) So even if we can't be there, we will have a little piece of Oregon with us this Christmas.
