The Count Down Is On!!!

Only 23 days until Christmas and 1 paycheck, for me. Crap not enough time!!! I only have 1 of my trees up, with 2 to go. Scott is putting lights on the house as I type. I built and lite a village today. I still need to wrap more gifts, decorate the entryway and clean/decorate the bathroom today. Scott's living room is done for the most part, my living room is being used for storage still. This weeks plan is to get my living room emptied, cleaned and decorated. Then all that will be left is getting the kitchen decorated.

I have discovered this year I have more village than table. I have about 8 buildings and 10 accessories that were not able to fit on the table. Scott even noticed! As soon as I hit the on button Scott said "Somethings missing. Where's the squeak?" My Krispy Kreme has a moving piece that sometimes squeaks, it is one that didn't make the village. This year there are 28 buildings, 8 accessories, 7 cars, 5 trees, 4 motorcycles, and 2 horse pulled wagons.

As for other holiday festivities I am hoping to start my baking this week. I also have 4 Christmas parties to attend. And I am hoping to start my holiday sewing. Good thing I'm only working 4 days this week!

Side note, my dad is getting his stitches out tomorrow and we will know more on his hand then.
