Things that make it feel like Christmas

  1. Making the final meal plan and grocery list for our Christmas hosting duties.
  2. Watching  National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Favorite scene: Clark pulling the station wagon under a semi.
  3. Wrapping ALL the gifts! I wrapped 17 boxes. Hugh wrapped one. And then wrapped that one in another box. Which promptly got wrapped in another box and another box. Until what started as a monster truck for Calder turned into a toilet box sized Russian stacking doll.
  4. Finishing the last of the Christmas decorating touches in the basement.
  5. Having the days left of work countdown at 5!
In related news, Calder told me on Sunday I looked like Santa. Thankfully he added "Because you have glasses." That didn't stop Hugh from adding, "And she has a big belly."
