December 22, 2010

Hello Friends!!!!

How is everyone??! 
I hope that this wonderful week of Christmas finds you all healthy and happy!

It has been a crazy hectic month.

Papa Spoonful has only been off of work for 3 days so far this month
~ the girls and I sure have missed him ~

Since we both are off  from Christmas eve through after the new year
we are planning to do lots of  christmassing. 

So what has been going on around here...

lots of yucky sicknesses.
stomach bugs.
head colds.
aches and pains.

Lots of baking and treat making.

Christmas tree decorating and undecorating.
( we had to replace our dead tree with a new fresh cut)

Yep, there were already a few birthdays in December.
First was Darla Lewinsky's 7th birthday.

She loves birthday parties!!!!

And Presents!

and she loves her new soft blankie.

and so does Sharky.

I had a birthday on the 16th.

As of today I am 359 days away from 40!
It was a great birthday..
and the greatest gift  of all was

I am all wrapped and ready for the big day.
In fact.. I can't wait..
I have a few awesome surprises for my awesome family.

I still need to decide on the Christmas menu
and...  I have to bake a birthday cake for grandma spoonful who has a Christmas birthday.

If I don't catch up with you all before Saturday
I wish each and every one of you a magical wonderful Christmas.

I am so thankful for the gifts that I found in you ladies!
Merry Christmas.
