The sun was shining yesterday, and it was 44 degrees, and while in many parts of the world that would be too cold for going out to blow bubbles - here in Minnesota, the kids decided it was perfect weather for it.
If we aren't going to have a white Christmas, we might as well get out there and pretend it's spring.
AJ was more than happy to come out and play with the bubble gun, but Zack, as usual, couldn't be persuaded to leave the computer.
I had a moment of insanity when I suggested this weekend that we bring all the kids to the Holidazzle parade in Minneapolis, but I came to my senses. Maybe we can pull that off next year -- especially if the STX209 medication does wonders for their tolerance.
It's less than a week until Christmas and here's where we are at.
Number of cookies eaten: a double batch
Number of cards sent out: 31
Number of cards received: 58
Number of cards yet to be sent: 27
(this number is fluid depending on what arrives in the mail this week)
(and yes, check my math if you want to)
Number of times I've had to say "Santa is watching...." : 11
Number of presents wrapped: 0
Number of presents yet to buy: 4
Number of times I plan to panic before Christmas: 0
Number of times I will actually panic: 9
Number of days until Christmas: 6
And I have to sign off now and get some things accomplished, before I begin panic #1.
