Outside my window... Is my freshly raked backyard. My husband spent all Sunday afternoon raking and get ready for our Christmas decorations.
I am thinking... school projects and semester exams really dampen my Christmas spirit.
I am thankful for... the true reason of the season: Jesus!
From the kitchen... grilled chicken tenderloins and baked macaroni and cheese. It is cold outside so it makes me want comfort food.
I am wearing... blue jeans and a crimson thermal Alabama shirt. Oh, yes, it is Alabama. Just because my team didn't win Saturday doesn't mean I am not a fan. Roll Tide Roll.
I am creating... a new Christmas card address list. I have no idea what I did with my 2008 list, but I must have tossed it in one of my "organizing" frenzies.
I am going... to try to wrap up all of my Christmas presents so I can double check and make sure I am not missing anything or anyone.
I am reading... "Boomtown". It is a children's book which was sent to me from Thomas Nelson Publishing for me to review.
I am hoping... that MK and LK keep eating so that they can come home very soon from the hospital.
I am hearing... the sounds of Good Morning America, the coffee pot and the voices of the boys as the get ready for school.
Around the house... beds to be made, laundry to be washed, and lots of Christmas decorations to just sit and look at!
One of my favorite things... snuggling with my boys right after their shower!
A few plans for the rest of the week: drive my sister to the NICU to feed MK and LK (i.e. snuggle my sweet nieces!), attend a jewelry party at Amusing's house, shop for an outfit for hubs' Christmas party, and check my list and check it twice!
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
This is Little Guy and Big Guy last year at Christmas time. They are pictured here on the balcony of Village Confections on the Square in Canton. Yes, that is a black eye that Little Guy is sporting. He got that go-cart riding at my parent's house over the Thanksgiving holidays and it was such a whopper that he still had it when this picture was taken.
