Santa and Mrs. Claus making a pre-run/last warning call on behavior…
Wishing you a Merry and wonderful Christmas. Winter white (Mid-ish West and Northeast) or rainy and dodging tornadoes (Southeast) or just lovely and balmy (our neck o’ the woods), may your day be lovely.
My Christmas present to you:
In your downtown and sugar induced coma I have some GREAT links to keep you busy and up your screen time….aaaaaaaafter you have sufficiently spent Quality time with the fam,K? K.
First, you can check out all the Christmas decorations with Katie @ NFP and me. I love checking out other people’s homes and decorations, super fun and done in my jammies.
Best PG view….with a “white” top it’s just not really “general public” kind of viewing…ya know?
Second, you can check out all the Christmas fashion you can stand and then some with the lovely and very preggo (and ridiculously tiny) Grace @ Camp Patton, also done in the PJs if you’d like….
My ‘fit….super similar to Sunday, ‘scuse the look…this was 1a.m….Mama’s done.
Except for the super awesome necklace my sis gave me last year….jelly??
Orrrrrr, you can read MY recap…because it’s my blog, right? 😉
Christmas Eve: Work until 3. Quick “last minute stocking socks” and caffeine stop. 6 o’clock Mass with the family.
Making our way…like herding cats.
Then off to the brother’s casa to feed the grumbly in the tumbly….
Papa and the clown-boy
Papa and almost as tall as him boy….
Popop and his girls
Pensive and handsome in his new jacket…
Dinner @ brother’s with extended family. Or is it dessert with a side of dinner?
My sugar jumps just looking at them again….is there such a thing as too much chocolate? A question to ponder…
Back home to get kids set up for their annual “campout in brother’s room” and a movie and Christmas Eve present (new pillows and 3 new Christmas movies….I was told they had enough PJs….the usual gift!) and then back for Midnight Mass with our French horn player.

Christmas Day: Up at 6:30 a.m. with LOTS of coffee and present time and cinnamon buns, visit from the grands and walk around the ‘hood. Now it’s chill time and then on to the In-laws for lunch.
