I wonder what it could be???

And J is dying! to tell me!

You may also be asking where I have been? Well, busy. Last week J had a Christmas band concert on Wednesday. He plays the French Horn. The 5th grade band was good, the 6th grade was horrible and the 7th grade was good.

Then on Friday night Rich and I conquered our Christmas shopping. It is done!! YEAH!! We split up, I took J, he took T and we went forth and conquered! It only took me about 3 hours, but then again I am a "slower" shopper than he is. Plus I also took the harder/more stuff to get. I got everything wrapped (except Mom's) between then and today.

I finished Bethany's bag yesterday and then last night J and the neighbor, Amber, ran the bell for the salvation army. I grocery shopped while they rang!

Today I made 3 batches of Christmas cookies; sugar cookies, spritz and more cream cheese cookies. I may have to make another batch of Spritz next weekend; T was eating them almost as fast as I was baking them. I got a crock pot of stew going, it will be Christmas dinner. My crock pot doesn't hold enough stew for everyone so I have to make two pots of it.

Tomorrow will be basketball practice, blood test and haircuts for the boys in the morning. Finish up the cream cheese cookies and clean the house. Then I just have to finish mom's gift and I will be done! Oh, but I also have to make the other pot of stew and Corn Dip for work on Thursday. We (dispatch) is bringing in some food for those of us that have to work. I also work Tuesday through Friday this week, and Rich works Monday through Thursday.

TJ is on his way over and I am going to snuggle up with a good book and some blog reading. It is really cold here. The wind is blowing and our gas heater is having a slightly hard time keeping up. It is normally 73 in here, but the wind is blowing so hard and its dropped so fast that it is not keeping up. We may actually have to turn the furnace back up for the night.

Off to read, and blog read!!
