Christmas Countdown - December 24

We made it!! Here we little one woke up this morning yelling "It's the day before Christmas!!" loud enough to wake the entire neighbourhood.

The cookies are ready for Santa, the carrots for the reindeer, the wine for Mom & Dad and the vocal chords for the carolling at church tonight. We are good to go.

Here are a few last minute survival tips I have discovered:

How to get hubby to wrap over 20 gifts at 11 PM in record time
Give him "the look", a wink, a glass of wine, tell him you just shaved your legs, as as he leaps towards the bedroom simply say, "You get nothing till all the gifts are wrapped". It worked.

How to lighten the stress with laughter (and immense embarrassment)
While being the 'greeters' at church in the morning, make sure one of your 4 year olds says to a dear sweet old lady, who is about 4 feet tall, "Good morning, Merry Christmas, WOW! You sure are a small lady!"
Diet Schmiet.

It is NOT a brilliant idea at 1 AM to stuff the stockings, thinking you are ahead of the game. You will come to this realization at 8 AM when the children ask you if they can FINALLY hang their stocking for Santa to fill it.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Seasons' Greetings and many warm wishes for everything good to all of you.
