december daily | day eight

25 days of advent - day eight

I just realized there are only 2 weeks left until Christmas! Yikes. Where have I been since Thanksgiving? Hoping if I ignore it, it would go away. Sigh. I have been making my list of items I need to make. Baking mostly. And some scrapbooking gifts. I can’t say too much because some of you, dear family, will be receiving these items and I don’t want to spoil the surprise.

I just got the training schedule for Alex’s Synchronized Skate Team today. They are gearing up for the competition season which starts in February. I have a feeling I will need to put on a helmet and bucket my seat beats ’cause it’s going to be a crash course into the figure skating world. Yikes, again.

I am just feeling lots of anxiety over Christmas. Money is tight (or non-existent, however you want to look at it) and I am so far behind. I have only bought a few small items. And I still have to ship packages. Luckily, we have a UPS pickup everyday at work so I don’t have to deal with the dreaded long lines at the post office.  But still, I hate paying for shipping.

Anyhoo, above is my sad attempt to keep up with the December Daily over at Ali Edwards. Parker (4 years old) is standing in front of our tree singing Christmas carols…and getting many of the words wrong. Adorable.

Get my freebie here.

  1. children will soon forget your presents. But they will always remember your presence. And i have very fond memories of my child hood. So give a gift of treasure , instead of junk.
