Where did time go?

Well as of Dec 5th I was officially the mother of an 11 year old...what!?!  It seems every day I wake up..and both my kids are a year older...I just don't know where the time is going!  It certainly isn't doing my laundry lol!  Next month will be my little girl's turn to amaze me..she is turning 9.........eeek!  Please remind me NOT to have any more kids around this time of year! 

  Christmas is about 2 weeks away, and I am basically D O N E shopping..I say basically because there are always more things I could buy....and probably will.  Still have a few more big boy toys to get for Hubby..he's been such a good boy this year lol.  He's easy, as long as he has a bottle of whiskey from Santa and some meat pie (delish) he's good to go.  The kid's are a little trickier, but not by much!  I think they both made out pretty good this year, considering I warned them ahead of time that I didn't know just how much I would have to devote to spoiling them.  But I did make sure that they each got a good chunk of wish list items, which is usually my main goal of the year.  Once I got them each every single thing they asked for..and ya know what?  They weren't any more excited than they were when I got them only 1 or 2 "must haves" so I decided from now on I would look at the "want" and "need" items...and tweak them with what I want to (and can afford to) get.

I am lucky, even though my son is one of those "need the best of the best" kids...neither of them are ever disappointed on Christmas, they thoroughly enjoy giving as well as getting, and just the whole Christmas experience..which is awesome!  My daughter is super easy, one of her "gotta have it" items this year was a new pair of slippers!  Yep I can totally handle that!

Well, here's to another pre-Christmas meltdown avoided...and happy kids on Christmas morning!  I can't WAIT to see what Santa has in store for us this year!!!

How cute!!  Dontchya just LOVE my faux brick wall?  I painted it all by myself! haha
